Q. What is the Measure 57? Are the Mandatory Sentences Really Mandatory? where can i buy phentermine hcl 37.5 mg In 1996 the Oregon Legislature enacted the Repeat Property Offender’s Act (“REPO”) which required prison sentences for people who were convicted of property crimes and who had a prior record of property crime convictions. The prior convictions become “predicate convictions” which initially triggered mandatory sentences of 13 and 18 months, depending on the seriousness of the new property offense. If a person is charged with multiple property offenses, even in the same Indictment, the person can become eligible for a REPO sentence in the course of a single sentencing. REPO sentence are mandatory, but a person can argue for probation in some circumstances.

Most importantly, Measure 57 increased the mandatory sentences to18 or 24 months and restricted the availability of probation for people who had previously avoided a mandatory REPO sentence with probation.

Freeland, a case which set clear limits on prosecutorial discretion.  In buy adipex phentermine 37.5 Freeland, a district attorney charged a person with a crime by taking the case to grand jury, rather than allowing him a preliminary hearing which would have occurred in open court.  Mr. Freeland argued that the district attorney had no coherent policy over which cases were taken to grand jury and which went to preliminary hearing, leaving the prosecutor with unfettered discretion.  The Oregon Supreme Court agreed and found that such decisions must be made in accord with a systematic, coherent policy, in violations of the “privileges and immunities clause” of Article 1, Section 20 of the Oregon Constitution. buy soma online shipped cash on deliverly buy xanax wholesale This rule limiting prosecutorial discretion has remained in place for 31 years. carisoprodol 350 mg and ibuprofen where can i buy lorazepam no prescription In September of 2013 the Oregon Supreme Court revisited the buy soma Freeland decision in phentermine 5mg State v. Savastano.  In order clonazepam online without prescription Savastano, the defendant challenged a prosecutor’s standardless practice of “aggregating” multiple thefts into a Aggravated Theft charges.  Oregon law does allow a prosecutor to take multiple incidents of theft against a single victim that occur over a 180 day period into an Aggravated Theft charge.  Ms. Savastano was accused of committing multiple thefts from her employer over an extended period of time.  The prosecutor who charged her had no policy governing the choice of which thefts to aggregate, which time periods to choose or whether to aggregate the thefts at all.  Savastano argued that, under phentermine hcl 37.5mg buy online Freeland, the prosecutor was required to have a systematic and coherent policy in making such decisions.  The Court of Appeals, citing diazepam with food Freeland, agreed.

Savastano, the Supreme Court decided to throw out the Freeland rule.  The Supreme Court sometimes modifies or reverses its previous decisions.  The Court is hesitant to do so, and tries to follow the rule of soma 350 mg how many to get high stare decisis which is a rule that sets a preference on following the rule in previous decisions, rather than constantly changing the law and causing confusion.  In xanax order lorazepam Savastano, the Court found that the requirement of a “coherent and systematic policy” was really never required by Article 1, Section 20 and that Freeland’s holding to the contrary was a mistake. lorazepam no rx cod
