Measure 11 Sex Crimes

There are a tremendous number of false accusations of sexual misconduct. We have succeeded in having many cases dismissed or not prosecuted at all as a result of our intense pre-trial representation.

Relief From Sex Offender Registration

Under some circumstances, a person who was convicted of a sex offense requiring yearly registration can petition the Court for relief from that requirement. Whether the Court allows such a motion depends on the nature of the offense, a person's performance on probation and the overall success of a person's rehabilitation.

181.600 Relief from reporting requirement; procedure. (1)(a) No sooner than 10 years after termination of supervision on probation, conditional release, parole or post prison supervision, a person required to report under ORS 181.595, 181.596 or 181.597 may file a petition in the circuit court of the county in which the person resides for an order relieving the person of the duty to report if:

(A) The person has only one conviction for, or juvenile court finding of jurisdiction based on, a sex crime;

(B) The sex crime was a misdemeanor or Class C felony or, if committed in another state, would have been a misdemeanor or Class C felony if committed in this state; and

(C) The person has not been determined to be a predatory sex offender as described in ORS 181.585.

(b) The district attorney of the county shall be named and served as the respondent in the petition.

(2) The court shall hold a hearing on the petition. In determining whether to grant the relief requested, the court shall consider:

(a) The nature of the offense that required reporting;

(b) The age and number of victims;

(c) The degree of violence involved in the offense;

(d) Other criminal and relevant noncriminal behavior of the petitioner both before and after the conviction that required reporting;

(e) The period of time during which the petitioner has not reoffended;

(f) Whether the petitioner has successfully completed a court approved sex offender treatment program; and

(g) Any other relevant factors.

(3) If the court is satisfied by clear and convincing evidence that the petitioner is rehabilitated and that the petitioner does not pose a threat to the safety of the public, the court shall enter an order relieving the petitioner of the duty to report. When the court enters an order under this subsection, the petitioner shall send a certified copy of the court order to the Department of State Police.

MEASURE 11 SEX CRIMES ARE SERIOUS CRIMINAL CHARGES WITH SERIOUS POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES.
