Yes, at least what is considered a violent crime under Oklahoma law. A few years ago, the State Legislature amended the violent crime list to ensure they included all of the 85% crimes as violent crimes. Now, the opposite is not true - there are violent crimes that are not 85% crimes.
If this is your first court setting, you may be able to get a continuance. If you have an attorney you want to hire but just don't yet have the funds yet to hire the attorney, you should inform the court of that and be prepared to have the attorney at your next court date. It also helps if you...Read more »
I have proof of him threatening me directly and through another person. He has harassed me on and off since I dated him a year ago. He harassed me and other girl last night and is not threatening to post said video as a way to keep me quiet about his harassment last night.
Contact an attorney as well as file a police report regarding the harassment and threats, and consider potentially filing a VPO. There are specific statutes regarding this type of crime and it should be taken seriously.
I only reported in to p.o 1 time and payed on fine 1 time but have done zero community service. (Though I do volunteer at meals on wheels but feel it would be in poor taste to claim comm. service for my volunteer work) the law about meth possession has changed since my plea so if I turned myself in...

There is nothing wrong with counting the hours spent volunteering with meals-on-wheels as community service, as that is what community service is (volunteering your time for the betterment of the community). You will need proof of the hours you worked and I'm not certain whether...Read more »
You need to contact a criminal defense attorney to get exact statutory language and numbers, but possession of CDS is a misdemeanor and, in Oklahoma state courts, carries up to one year in the county jail and up to $1000 fine. I believe Conspiracy to Commit a Felony is a felony and carries up to...Read more »
Public defenders, or other state provided criminal defense attorneys, are generally reserved for the indigent or poor. First and foremost they are responsible for representing the majority of in custody criminal defendants who don’t have the money to bond out and go home pending the resolution of...Read more »
I’d probably start by contacting the Attorney General’s office - specifically the consumer protection division. It might also be worth filing a police report for fraud and you could have a civil fraud claim against this person as well.
If this is in reference to a bond/bail forfeiture, then it likely has to do with the process set forth in law regarding when a bondsman must pay the bond forfeiture. This area of the law is very technical. Without getting into too many details on the bond forfeiture procedures, you just need to...Read more »
Short answer is yes. When he paroled, he had so many days remaining on his sentence. If granted street time, he would receive the time he was out on parole (up until the warrant being issued for the violation) subtracted from his days remaining. He could also be awarded credit for time served - the...Read more »
As a general rule whenever you see the word “issue” attached to a court proceeding it means evidence will be taken, witnesses will be called, final disposition of some stage in the life of that case will be had. For instance, in felony cases when the court characterizes a setting as...Read more »
I’m afraid there’s not enough information to give an accurate answer. When you say “incarcerated” I will assume you mean he/she is in prison, which seems to indicate he/she must have pleaded guilty to this crime and accepted a plea bargain (or lost at trial/ or was sentenced after a blind...Read more »
It has no bearing on court if you have been or have not been. There are however good training benefits from having the taser used on you, but so long as you receive the proper training and it is documented then you do not have to be tasered in order to be certified.
It's not really a motion. If it is part of a plea agreement, then it would need to just be written into the plea paperwork. If it is blind plea sentencing (where there is no agreement) or sentencing after a bench/jury trial, the defendant (through the defendant's attorney) can request...Read more »
