Tulsa, OK asked in Criminal Law and Domestic Violence for Oklahoma

Q: Is there any way to quash a felony arrest warrant if there's documented proof probable cause wasn't met?

Felony arrest warrant for Stalking filed on defendant for courthouse security camera showing defendant & victim passing each other in hallway with active protection order in place. Victim files false report claiming defendant yelled at her while omitting the fact defendant had a court hearing with victim. Victim has made false reports about defendant in the past. She had to plead guilty to a felony for one of them. The state chooses to ignore that fact & poor investigation by not bothering to check if defendant had court that day therefore claiming because of the all the past allegations defendant's only intention for going to courthouse was to stalk the victim.

A: No, because you just gave details that support that probable cause has been met. However, you may have a solid defense to the charges based upon your comments. Speak to your attorney about obtaining the security footage from the courthouse.
