Senate Bill 1511 Could Vacate Convictions for Hundreds

Senate Bill 1511 could vacate convictions for hundreds of people found guilty by non-unanimous juries. Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel tells KBND News in 2020 the US Supreme Court said the Oregon system was unconstitutional. Hummel says since 2020, he and his deputies can only get a conviction with a unanimous jury. Currently in committee, Senate Bill 1511 addressed cases prior to the Supreme Court ruling.
