The maximum term of an indeterminate sentence of imprisonment for a felony is as follows:

(1) For a Class A felony, 20 years.

(3) For a Class C felony, 5 years.

(4) For an unclassified felony as provided in the statute defining the crime. [1971 c.743 §74]

Notes of Decisions

Imposi­tion of one-year jail term upon con­vic­­tion of crim­i­nal ac­tivity in drugs was within max­i­mum sen­tence authorized for crime, was imposed after defendant had violated proba­tion, and did not shock the conscience. State v. Davis, 31 Or App 439, 570 P2d 683 (1977), Sup Ct review denied

Fact that defendant had at one time and place withheld prop­erty from 20 different victims was sufficient to constitute 20 separate theft of­fenses for each of which he could be sen­tenced. State v. Callaghan, 33 Or App 49, 576 P2d 14 (1978), Sup Ct review denied

Where defendant commits multiple felonies in separate situa­tions but is prosecuted for all felonies in single pro­ceed­ing, defendant can receive only one mandatory min­i­mum sen­tence under this sec­tion. State v. Haywood, 73 Or App 6, 697 P2d 977 (1985)

Notes of Decisions

A juvenile court adjudica­tion of whether or not a child committed acts which would be a crim­i­nal viola­tion if committed by an adult must necessarily include an adjudica­tion of all af­firm­a­tive de­fenses that would be available to an adult being tried for the same crim­i­nal viola­tion.
