OAR 255-040-0026
Effect of Minimum Terms on Reductions


If the inmate has a judicial minimum sentence greater than 36 months, which the Board previously upheld pursuant to ORS 144.110 (Restriction on parole of persons sentenced to minimum terms) or 163.115 (Murder in the second degree), the Board must overturn the minimum before it can grant a reduction from the previously established term.


If the inmate has a mandatory minimum sentence pursuant to ORS 161.610 (Enhanced penalty for use of firearm during commission of felony), the Board cannot grant a reduction below the mandatory minimum sentence and the statutory reduction for good time, except as provided in OAR 255-040-0028 (Reductions for a Severe Medical Condition or Incapacitated Elderly Person).
