The judge in a criminal action shall ensure that the creation and filing of a judgment document complies with this section. On appeal, the appellate court may give leave as provided in ORS 19.270 (Appellate jurisdiction of Supreme Court and Court of Appeals) for entry of a judgment document that complies with this section but may not reverse or set aside a judgment, determination or disposition on the sole ground that the judgment document fails to comply with this section.
Include any information specifically required by statute or by court rule.
Specify clearly the court’s determination for each charge in the information, indictment or complaint.
Specify clearly the court’s disposition, including all legal consequences the court establishes or imposes. If the determination is one of conviction, the judgment document must include any suspension of sentence, forfeiture, imprisonment, cancellation of license, removal from office, monetary obligation, probation, conditions of probation, discharge, restitution, community service and all other sentences and legal consequences imposed by the court. Nothing in this paragraph requires the judgment document to specify any consequences that may result from the determination but are not established or imposed by the court.
Include the identities of the attorney for the state and the attorney, if any, for the defendant.
The requirements of this section do not apply to a judgment document if the action was commenced by the issuance of a uniform citation adopted under ORS 1.525 (Uniform citation and petition forms for certain offenses) and the court has used the space on the citation for the entry of a judgment. The exemption provided by this subsection does not apply if any indictment, information or complaint other than a uniform citation is filed in the action.
For the purposes of determining the defendant’s age at the time of committing an offense under subsection (2) of this section:
If the defendant is convicted of two or more offenses occurring on different days, the defendant’s age shall be calculated using the earliest date.
If the defendant is convicted of an offense occurring within a range of dates, the defendant’s age shall be calculated using the date at the beginning of the range. [1989 c.472 §2; 1995 c.117 §1; 1997 c.526 §3; 2001 c.962 §88; 2003 c.300 §§1,2; 2003 c.576 §162; 2019 c.634 §1]
