THE OREGON SEX CRIMES GUIDE

MAIN PAGE OREGON DEFENSE ATTORNEY OREGON RAPE LAWS CHILD PORNOGRAPHY LAWS
"I defend people facing rape, sodomy, and other sex crime charges in the State of Oregon."

I just got arrested / cited for an Oregon sex crime.  What happens now?

 

If you were arrested for a misdemeanor sex crime, you may have received a citation or release agreement directing you to appear in court at a future date.  Please read this document carefully, and be sure to show up on time to your court appearance.  Your first court appearance is called an "arraignment" or "initial appearance."  Usually, very little happens at the first appearance beyond formally notifying you of the charge(s) and setting a second court date.  Sometimes, bail, release, or release conditions are discussed.

 

If you were arrested for a felony sex offense, then you were likely booked into custody and given a court date on the next business day.  Many sex crimes, especially Class A and Class B felonies are Measure 11 offenses and have extremely high bail amounts.  If you are not released on your own recognizance, then you will usually have to post bail in order to be released.  Make sure you abide by any release conditions, and make sure to have no contact with the complaining witness.

 

With some crimes like downloading / possession of child pornography, officers do not arrest you right away.  Typically, officers show up with a search warrant and seize computers / hard drives and interview the suspect.  Once the computers / hard drives are analyzed at a later date, the case is turned over to the District Attorney's Office.  The DA's Office then brings the case before a grand jury and charges of encouraging child sexual abuse follow.  Officers then arrest the suspect on the indictment warrant.  This can take several weeks and sometimes longer.

 

How are the various sex crimes committed?

 

Oregon law refers to sex crimes involving "rape," "sodomy," "unlawful sexual penetration," and "sexual abuse" among others. 

 

Rape involves "sexual intercourse” which has its ordinary meaning and occurs upon any penetration, however slight; emission is not required. 

 

Sodomy involves the act of "deviate sexual intercourse.”  Under Oregon law this means sexual conduct between persons consisting of contact between the sex organs of one person and the mouth or anus of another.  This refers to oral or anal sex.

 

Unlawful sexual penetration refers to the act of penetrating the vagina, anus or penis of another with any object other than the penis or mouth of the actor.  Usually a finger is the "object" used.

 

"Sexual abuse" usually means touching the sexually intimate parts of another (except in the case of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree).  Refer to the definition of "sexual contact" below.


Oregon law does not use the terms "statutory rape" or "statutory sodomy" that are common in other states.  Some other definitions used in Oregon sex crimes are set forth in ORS 163.305:

"Forcible compulsion” means to compel by:  (a) Physical force; or (b) a threat, express or implied, that places a person in fear of immediate or future death or physical injury to self or another person, or in fear that the person or another person will immediately or in the future be kidnapped.

“Mentally defective” means that a person suffers from a mental disease or defect that renders the person incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct of the person.

“Mentally incapacitated” means that a person is rendered incapable of appraising or controlling the conduct of the person at the time of the alleged offense.

“Physically helpless” means that a person is unconscious or for any other reason is physically unable to communicate unwillingness to an act.

"Sexual contact” means any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person or causing such person to touch the sexual or other intimate parts of the actor for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of either party.

"Statutory rape" or "statutory sodomy" are terms used in some states but not in Oregon.  These terms refer to sex acts where the lack of consent is based solely on the age of the child victim.  In Oregon, rape / sodomy in the third degree and rape / sodomy in the second degree would be known as statutory rape in other states. 

Some of the most common sex crimes are set forth below.  Oregon law refers to degrees when describing some crimes.  For example, Rape in the First Degree is referred to as Rape I (Rape One).  Rape in the Second Degree is referred to as Rape II and so forth.

 

What is the age of consent in Oregon?

 

In the majority of states, the age of consent is either 16 or 17; however, the age of consent in Oregon is 18 years.  Under Oregon law, a person is considered incapable of consenting to a sexual act if the person is:

 

      (a) Under 18 years of age; or

      (b) Mentally defective; or

      (c) Mentally incapacitated; or

      (d) Physically helpless.

 

It is a defense to some (but not all) sex crimes where lack of consent is based solely on being under age that the parties' ages are less that three years apart.

Did you know that school age children commonly commit the crime of encouraging child sexual abuse and / or using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct?  Using cell phone cameras and other digital devices, children (persons under the age of 18) photograph one another in a state of undress or while engaged in sexual acts.  The photographs are often shown (displayed) to other individuals over and over.

How are child porn (encouraging child sex abuse) crimes typically investigated?

 

Law enforcement officers monitor file sharing sites.  When they observe an IP address accessing child pornography, they contact / subpoena the internet service provider (ISP) to see which household uses that IP address.  Once they determine who the address belongs to, they apply for a search warrant for the owner's computer and residence.  If child porn is found on the computer, felony charges follow. 

 

Other times, a person discovers child porn on a computer / hard drive of another and then contacts law enforcement.  Law enforcement then obtains a warrant to seize and search the computer.  Usually charges of encouraging child sexual abuse follow.

 

What penalties might I face if convicted of a sex crime?

 

Many felony sex offenses are Ballot Measure 11 crimes and come with length mandatory minimum prison sentences if you're convicted of the offense.  The prison sentence is followed by a period of post prison supervision (parole). 

 

With some lesser type sex crimes, you will face a jail sentence but not a prison term.  These convictions often come with a period of probation generally lasting for two to five years.  Along with the standard conditions of probation, there will be a number of conditions of any sex offense probation including successfully completing a sex offender treatment program approved by the supervising officer and submitting to polygraph examinations at the direction of the supervising officer.

 

In rare cases, persons with prior sex crimes convictions face a possible life sentence under ORS 137.719.

 

The police have asked me to take a polygraph examination.  Should I do it?

 

As a general rule, no.  Your attorney may suggest that you take a private polygraph exam at a later time.  Taking a law enforcement polygraph comes with an unacceptable level of risk and should be avoided.

 

What is a psycho-sexual evaluation?

 

A psycho-sexual evaluation is a psychological assessment done by a trained professional that evaluates an individual suspected of sexual misconduct.  The evaluator attempts to determine an individual's risk to the community; need for treatment; and amenability to treatment and / or supervision.  An evaluator may employ interview(s), psychological testing, polygraphs, plethysmograph testing, police reports, and criminal history in the evaluation. 

 

A psycho-sexual evaluation might be requested by your lawyer for use in negotiations with the District Attorney's Office or an evaluation might be sought by DHS or the Department of Community Corrections (parole / probation department). 

 

Will I have to register as a sex offender?

 

If you are convicted for a sex offense in Oregon, you will likely have to register as a sex offender.  [There are a few notable exceptions.]  The registration requirement often lasts for the convicted person's lifetime.  If required to report as a sex offender under Oregon law, you will have to report with the Department of State Police, a city police department, a county sheriff’s office or the supervising agency:

  • When supervision (probation / post-prison) begins;

  • Within 10 days of a change in residence;

  • Once each year within 10 days of the probationer’s date of birth;

  • Within 10 days of the first day the person works at, carries on a vocation at or attends an institution of higher education; and

  • Within 10 days of a change in work, vocation or attendance status at an institution of higher education.

Can I expunge or seal a conviction for a sexual offense?

 

Sex crime convictions generally cannot be sealed or expunged under Oregon law.  If your case is completely dismissed or you are found not guilty of all charges at trial, then you may be able to seal the record of arrest.
