Measure 94 - Repeal of Measure 11


Measure 94 appeared on the ballot in November of 2000. It would have repealed Measure 11, sharply reducing sentences for violent crimes and sex offenses. Crime Victims United took a leading role in opposing Measure 94. It was defeated by a nearly 3 to 1 margin.

Recap of Measure 94 campaign

The material below was prepared by Crime Victims United during the Measure 94 campaign.

A group of Oregonians who feel that we are too tough on violent criminals has sponsored a ballot measure that would repeal Measure 11. The ballot measure would not only repeal Measure 11, but would also require that everyone sentenced under Measure 11, including robbers, rapists, and murderers, be resentenced under the previous, more lenient system. A murderer sentenced to 25 years under Measure 11 could have his sentenced reduced to 10 years (minus two years off for "good time"). A murderer who was 15 to 17 years old would be re-sentenced as a juvenile and could serve as little as a few years.
