Measure 11 refers to Ballot Measure 11, a citizens initiative passed in 1994 that was put into effect in 1995. It essentially states that persons convicted of certain crimes receive a mandatory minimum sentence, regardless of the person’s criminal record or the particular circumstances of the offense. These sentences begin with a minimum of 5 years and can go all the way up to 25 years for serious crimes. If you are being investigated for a crime that qualifies under Measure 11, it is extremely important that you speak with an experienced attorney before you agree to speak with someone from law enforcement. If you have already been charged with a Measure 11 offense, you need to consult best attorney you can find, such as Mr. Dials who has extensive experience in successfully defending persons accused of Measure 11 crimes.
