2017 ORS 137.085¹
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 victim’s particular vulnerability to injury in such case, due to the victim’s 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]
