Appeals in Criminal Actions

ORS 157.030
Time and manner of taking appeal

The appeal is taken in the same manner and within the same time as in the case of an appeal from a judgment in a civil action, except that:


The notice thereof shall be served upon the district attorney for the county, or the deputy of the district attorney, or upon the private prosecutor in the action;


When the notice of appeal has been filed with the court from which the appeal is being taken, the appellate court shall have jurisdiction of the cause. Failure to serve a notice of appeal on the appropriate attorney shall not preclude jurisdiction in the appellate court; and


No undertaking providing for the payment of costs and disbursements shall be required. [Amended by 1989 c.123 §1]

Notes of Decisions

Where defendant served city attorney rather than district attorney with notice of appeal from municipal court conviction, appeal was not properly filed. City of Pendleton v. Martin, 46 Or App 181, 611 P2d 318 (1980), Sup Ct review denied
