ORS 161.515
“Crime” described


(1)

A crime is an offense for which a sentence of imprisonment is authorized.

(2)

A crime is either a felony or a misdemeanor. [1971 c.743 §66]

Notes of Decisions

Where defendant was found guilty of Hit and Run, a traffic violation, and had been convicted within five years of DUII, trial court had authority to impose jail sentence for misdemeanor under [former] ORS 484.365; existence of prior conviction, not culpable mental state, raises offense to misdemeanor. State v. Plummer, 53 Or App 240, 631 P2d 819 (1981)
