"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)
