Oregon Statutes - Chapter 137 - Judgment and Execution; Parole and Probation by the Court - Section 137.085 - Age and physical disability of victim as factors in sentencing.

When a court sentences a defendant convicted of any crime involving a physical or sexual assault, the court shall give consideration to a victimís particular vulnerability to injury in such case, due to the victimís youth, advanced age or physical disability. Such particular vulnerability of the victim is a fact enhancing the seriousness of any assault, and the court shall consider it as such in imposing the sentence within the limits otherwise provided by law. [1985 c.767 §1]

Note: 137.085 was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 137 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
