Being accused of sex crime can have lasting and severe consequences. Many sex crimes in Oregon are felonies. This means that in addition to the loss of certain civil rights an individual convicted of a sex crime in Oregon may face a lengthy term of imprisonment in the Oregon Department of Corrections. Some Oregon sex crimes are Measure 11 crimes. If you or someone you know is convicted of a Measure 11 sex crime they may be required to serve a mandatory sentence in prison. A conviction for a sex crime may also result in a requirement to register as a sex offender.
The government has the requirement to prove the elements of a sex crime with proof beyond a reasonable doubt. In prosecuting someone for a sex crime the government will look for:
Corroboration: Is there physical evidence or independent witnesses to link the defendant to a crime.
Confession: Has a suspect in a sex crime confessed. If so, when and why did they make the confession. A confession must be intelligently, voluntarily, and knowingly made.
Credibility: Does the victim accurately recall the events that make up the allegations or are there inaccuracies or omissions? How many statements were given and to whom? Were the statements recorded? A victim's word is enough to convict a defendant of a crime if the jury believes the victim is credible beyond a reasonable doubt.
Thorough Investigation - The police and prosecution should look at anything an accuser has said and see if there is an independent means to refute or confirm their assertions.
