Criminal Trials

ORS 136.110
Commitment of defendant after release

When a defendant who has been released appears for trial, the court may in its discretion at any time after such appearance order the defendant to be committed to actual custody to abide the judgment or further order of the court; and the defendant shall be committed and held in custody accordingly. [Amended by 1973 c.836 §227]

Notes of Decisions

Upon defendant’s plea of guilty at time of trial, court had discretion under this section to order confinement and, despite court’s failure to exercise discretion, defendant’s detention was not illegal where sentence of up to five years was inevitable and would make flight attractive. Owens v. Duryee, 285 Or 75, 589 P2d 1115 (1979)
