Abstract

This project examines Measure 11 and the opinions and perspectives of defense attorneys and prosecutors twenty years after the passage of the controversial ballot measure. The research presents the thoughts and opinions of the people who had a hand in the implementation of Measure 11 about its influence on the state’s budget, its efficacy in reducing Oregon’s crime rate, and its effect on due process of the law. It also makes the case for the reform or repeal of a law that takes power away from judges, juries and defense attorneys and concentrates power into the hands of the prosecutor.
