Does the Romeo and Juliet Law Apply in Oregon?
Romeo and Juliet laws also apply in Oregon, which means that consensual sex between two minors that are less than three years apart can not be prosecuted. However, having sex with someone under 12 is always a serious crime, and can lead up to 20 years in prison.

Under Oregon’s Measure 11, some sex crimes have established mandatory minimum sentencing. For example, first-degree sexual abuse carries a minimum of six years and three months of incarceration that cannot be reduced. Should you be found guilty of a sex crime, imprisonment is only one penalty. Those convicted will be added to the sex offender registry for the remainder of their lives. This dictates where you can live, your rights, and even your employment.
