Lawmakers consider leniency bills for juveniles convicted of Measure 11 crimes

Oregon lawmakers heard from the public regarding a series of bills aimed to give convicted adolescents a better chance at rehabilitation.

Senate Bill 966 would apply to juvenile offenders scheduled to be released before their 27th birthday. The law would allow courts to decide whether those inmates could be released, rather than turned over to the Department of Corrections when they turned 25.

Senate Bill 967 ensures that people who commit crimes before they are 18, but aren’t sentenced until they turn 19, can be put into custody of the Oregon Youth Authority.

Senate Bill 968 says that juvenile offenders can’t be sentenced to life without parole, and are eligible for parole after 15 years.

Senate Bill 969 does away with a mandate that juveniles 15 or older be tried as adults if they commit one of the serious crimes set forth in Ballot Measure 11, which Oregon voters passed in 1994. Those crimes include murder, sex offenses, kidnapping, and arson.

Senate Bill 1008 creates new provisions for when serious juvenile offenders are eligible for conditional release.

The proposed changes are strongly supported by Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, Department of Corrections Director Colette Peters, and Oregon Youth Authority Director Joe O’Leary. A host of civil liberties and justice-reform groups are also backing the changes, including the ACLU, the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners and the director of the Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at OHSU.
