Attorney for Measure 11 Offenses in Oregon

Why You Need a Bend Criminal Lawyer

In November of 1994, Ballot Measure 11 was voted into Oregon legislature. This would require a mandatory minimum prison sentence for a list of certain crimes. If you are faced with one of the crimes on the Measure 11 list, it is critical that you retain legal services as soon as possible. If you have been arrested or charged, contact Baxter Harder, LLC immediately and talk to our Bend criminal lawyer about your case.

Strong Defense for Serious Crimes

These cases are considered extremely serious. The amount of prison time that you may face if convicted is between 70 to 300 months. While it is common in many other states for convicted individuals to never serve their jail time or to be released early, this is typically not the case in Oregon.

The list of Measure 11 crimes which can require mandatory prison sentences include the following:

  • Murder
  • Attempted Murder and Attempted Aggravated Murder
  • Assault I and Assault II
  • Manslaughter I and Manslaughter II
  • Kidnapping I and Kidnapping II
  • Sexual Penetration I and Sexual Penetration II
  • Rape I and Rape II
  • Sodomy I and Sodomy II
  • Robbery I and Robbery II
  • Sexual Abuse I
  • Arson I
  • Compelling Prostitution
  • Use of Child in Display of Sex Act

Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • DUI, Reckless, and Interfering Defense

    “I selected Mr. Baxter to defend me against charges stemming from a DUI arrest. In addition to the DUI, I was also charged with reckless driving and interfering with the duties of a peace officer. Mr. Baxter's calm demeanor and support during this difficult, embarrassing incident were his primary assets. His extensive experience working in Deschutes County, in particular the District Attorney's office, also were factors in my decision. In the end, Mr. Baxter was able to get the Reckless and Interfering Charges dismissed and I am currently enrolled in diversion for the DUI. This was the best possible scenario I could have envisioned after facing the possibility of additional charges that would have resulted in substantial penalties. I have certainly learned a life lesson as a result of this arrest and am thankful to Mr. Baxter for his representation.”

  • Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers

    “Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers I've worked with. His many years of experience in the courtroom as well as a former prosecutor was apparent in negotiating my specific case. He worked on my case until a resolution was accomplished that he and I both determined was the best outcome for me and all the work he put in for my release, plea and sentencing was performed in a time frame that was appropriate for not only my case but for me as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter for anyone looking to hire a tremendously enthusiastic albeit law savvy attorney. Thanks Casey!”

    Kimberly

  • Highly Recommend

    “I actually hired Casey based on the reviews from Avvo. Since I live in WA, but got my DUII in Oregon, my situation was a little different than some, but Casey has been able to answer my questions all through the process. My case was pretty standard as to what was going to happen (and did happen). Mostly, Casey eased my fears with the whole process and made the ordeal much easier than if I had tried to handle this on my own. ”

    Shelley

  • He rules!

    “Mr. Baxter was really supportive and knowledgeable of our unique situation. He was well-prepared and totally approachable too. He's been available with any and all questions that we've had since he helped us. He was straightforward and didn't give us any BS. ”

    Jennifer

  • Highest sense of urgency

    “I had a rather complicated case. Multiple states involved and multiple scenarios and issues that arose daily. I found Casey to extremely honest and transparent. I felt he gave me the most specific information he could. I never felt he was dragging or putting my case behind other cases. He gave me information in complete transparency and never said what he thought sounded good to me. He wasn't afraid of the tough conversations. I would highly recommend this lawyer and this firm if you need complete transparency and accurate information. His office staff consist of incredible work ethic and professionalism. They are always available and provide precise appointments and feedback if any is available. I have had a great experience and couldn't be happier with the result of my case as well as the journey to attain that result. Best I have ever used.”
