Mandatory Draconic Prison Sentences And Banishment

Oregon's Measure 11 statute mandates severe minimum prison sentences for violent crimes and sex offenses. Accusations that involve assault, robbery, sexual abuse and murder put freedoms and futures at risk. For non-U.S. citizens and foreign nationals, convictions on "aggravated" felony charges lead to the mandatory minimum of banishment.

Measure 11 criminal convictions deny the court any flexibility in reducing the length of sentences. Sentences ranging from several years to hundreds of months must be served in full. Banishment is forever being required to never return home to family and friends no matter the dangers of their country of birth.
