(1) Subject to subsection (2) of this section, the court shall forfeit to the forfeiting agency at least as much of the defendant property as may be required to pay the forfeiting agency’s costs as described in ORS 475A.120 (4) and 475A.126 (3).
(2) At least 10 days before a trial under ORS 475A.075, a claimant may serve upon the forfeiting agency an offer to allow judgment to be given against all or part of the defendant property for a specified sum, specified property, or to a specified effect. If the forfeiting agency accepts the offer, the forfeiting agency must file a written acceptance with the clerk of the court within three days after the date on which the offer was served upon the forfeiting agency. If an acceptance is filed with the court, judgment shall be entered based on the acceptance as a stipulated judgment. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, costs and disbursements as defined in ORCP 68 shall be entered as part of the judgment pursuant to the procedure provided by Rule 68. If an acceptance is not filed with the court within three days after the time the offer was served upon the forfeiting agency, the offer shall be considered withdrawn, and may not be given in evidence on the trial. If the forfeiting agency fails to obtain a judgment after trial that is more favorable than the offer made by the claimant, the court shall award to the claimant costs and disbursements as defined in ORCP 68, and the court may enter a judgment that forfeits to the forfeiting agency less of the defendant property than may be required to pay the forfeiting agency’s costs as described in ORS 475A.120 (4) and 475A.126 (3).
