The Oregon legislature is considering an ambitious bill to reform juvenile justice, and to mitigate mandatory minimum sentencing for youth offenders under Measure 11.

Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 28 alongside Sen. Jackie Winters (R-Salem) and Sen. James I. Manning, Jr. (D-Eugene) to voice her support for the four Senate bills that were later merged as SB 1008 during an April 8 work session.

“As we learn more about the fluid nature of neurological development in our adolescents, and as our science continually improves, it is only proper that we use this new information to critically question the accuracy of long-held assumptions about culpability, reformation, and the capacity of our youth for self-betterment, even in the most adverse of circumstances,” Rosenblum told the committee.
