With the correct defense strategy people can go on to have happy and successful lives following criminal allegations. By presenting a criminal defense people can show that they are innocent of the crime they are accused of. Furthermore, a proper criminal defense will also question the police's conduct during a criminal investigation, the arrest and subsequent questioning.

Oregon debates lowering criminal penalties

The criminal code in Oregon is changing all the time -- new laws are added, old laws are repealed and penalties are changed. With all these changes, criminal defense strategies are also constantly changing in order to make sure that people are not being wrongfully convicted of serious crimes. Those accused of crimes in Oregon -- especially of felony crimes -- should make sure they understand the charges against them and any possible criminal defenses in order to ensure the best possible outcome to their case.

Oregon Legislature debates new felony crimes

Under current Oregon laws, if a person solicits a minor for sex in exchange for money, that person is not charged with a felony.

However, this soon could change if new proposed legislation is passed.
