Oregon Measure 11 For Minors
Measure 11 is an initiative that was passed by Oregon voters that allows prosecutors to try juveniles age 15 and up as adults for certain crimes, including robbery, assault and other violent crimes. A conviction for one of these crimes can bring a minimum of 70 months in a prison or detention center. Moreover, convictions for Measure 11 crimes are not expungeable nor sealed as juvenile offenses sometimes are. Protect your child from a permanent criminal record by seeking the advice of an experienced juvenile delinquency attorney as soon as possible. I may be able to prevent your child from being charged or convicted as an adult.
I am attorney Shelley L. Fuller, and I have years of experience dealing with misdemeanor and felony juvenile delinquency matters in Beaverton, Portland and throughout surrounding Oregon communities. I believe juveniles deserve a second chance and am prepared to defend your child's rights in this critical legal matter.
Measure 11 Second Look For Minors
One ray of hope for juveniles convicted of Measure 11 crimes is the "second look," a review hearing that takes place after one half of the sentence has been served. A successful second look hearing results in the incarcerated youth being released from custody and placed on probation with strict provisions in place.
In a second look hearing, the court takes into consideration a number of factors, including the seriousness of the offense and the likelihood that the incarcerated person has been reformed. As a juvenile law attorney with more than 15 years of experience, I know how to craft compelling arguments in Measure 11 second look hearings. I strongly believe that minors need help, not jail time. I am here to provide your child with the strong defense representation he or she needs in a Measure 11 second look hearing.
