Appeal by state
(1) The state may take an appeal from the circuit court, or from a municipal court or a justice court that has become a court of record under ORS 51.025 (Justice court as court of record) or 221.342 (Method by which municipal court becomes court of record), to the Court of Appeals from:
(a) An order made prior to trial dismissing or setting aside the accusatory instrument;
(b) An order arresting the judgment;
(c) An order made prior to trial suppressing evidence;
(d) An order made prior to trial for the return or restoration of things seized;
(e) A judgment of conviction based on the sentence as provided in ORS 138.222 (Scope of review of sentence imposed for felony committed on or after November 1, 1989);
(f) An order in a probation revocation hearing finding that a defendant who was sentenced to probation under ORS 137.712 (Exceptions to ORS 137.700 and 137.707) has not violated a condition of probation by committing a new crime;
(g) An order made after a guilty finding dismissing or setting aside the accusatory instrument;
(h) An order granting a new trial; or
(i) An order dismissing an accusatory instrument under ORS 136.130 (Effect of dismissal on subsequent prosecution for same crime).
(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, when the state chooses to appeal from an order listed in paragraph (a) or (b) of this subsection, the state shall take the appeal to the Supreme Court if the defendant is charged with murder or aggravated murder. The orders to which this subsection applies are:
(a) An order made prior to trial suppressing evidence; and
(b) An order made prior to trial dismissing or setting aside the accusatory instrument.
(3) In an appeal by the state under subsection (2) of this section, the Supreme Court shall issue its decision no later than one year after the date of oral argument or, if the appeal is not orally argued, the date that the State Court Administrator delivers the briefs to the Supreme Court for decision. Failure of the Supreme Court to issue a decision within one year is not a ground for dismissal of the appeal.
