2017 ORS 161.545¹
“Misdemeanor” described

A crime is a misdemeanor if it is so designated in any statute of this state or if a person convicted thereof may be sentenced to a maximum term of imprisonment of not more than one year. [1971 c.743 §69]

Notes of Decisions

Where defendant purposely pointed unloaded pistol at Bureau of Indian Affairs Security Officer in viola­tion of Oregon Statute, use of Assimilative Crimes Act was appropriate since federal statute did not punish precise acts upon which state law con­vic­­tion depended and victim’s testimony that defendant pointed gun at him was sufficient evidence that defendant acted “purposely” within meaning of Oregon statute. U.S. v. Kaufman, 862 F 2d 236 (9th Cir. 1988)
