Some juvenile justice advocates say Measure 73 shouldn't apply to teens under age 18. The Measure sets a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison for repeat offenders of major felony sex crimes. Doug Harcleroad with Oregon Anti-Crime Alliance says the law rarely applies to teens because teens are rarely repeat offenders. A bill in the Senate would change the law to require the mandatory minimum only for offenders who are 18 or older. Supporters say over-sentencing can increase chances for repeat offenses later in life.
