****Speed Bumps For Chandler UPDATE and CALL TO ACTION****
We called and spoke to directly to the Deputy District Attorney, Anna Marie Shoen, assigned to Chris Chandler’s case and was informed that Frederick Ryerson, Jr. is being charged with Manslaughter in the 2nd degree, Felony Hit and Run x 2 and Misdemeanor DUI. Manslaughter in the 2nd degree is a Measure 11 offense in Oregon and has a minimum sentencing rule of at least 6 years and three months. Many of you may remember that the original charges were only Felony Hit and Run x 2 so the charges against Ryerson have been escalated but at any time these charges can be plea bargained down to lesser charges! This is where the Call to Action comes in because we have a unique opportunity to voice our concerns and opinions DIRECTLY to the DA’s office this coming Monday, October 26 during a meeting organized by Bike Portland called Wonk Night - The Negligence Gap. Representatives of the DA’s office will be there so we need to show up in full force to show the DA that we not only want justice for Chris Chandler but that also there is a need to address the existing law structure and to improve safety standards for pedestrian traffic. Many of you have expressed anger, frustration and sadness so let’s honor our friend by channeling our collective energies to create a positive change!
