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

Q: DA filed Burks notice about a past incident never reported to polic but there is one. Is that prosecution misconduct ?

In DA's statement of facts on my brother to support probable cause the DA exaggerates what victim reported to police about a domestic assault committed by my brother on the victim 5 yrs ago that makes him seem abusive, how it wasn't reported to police, and that she continued to stay with my brother cause they just had a baby but then left him a year later when the abuse got worse. Thats all a lie. She did make a police report. It stated the victim was unconscious on laying on side of the road, was extremely intoxicated, could remember at first,& didn't want to press charges. He broke up with her and she begged for him. He gave her another chance because of the baby but then caught her cheating later & when he tried to get visitation she tried to set him up but got caught & plead guilty to a felony for false amber alert on my brother. She also filed a habeas that the baby wasn't his. Dhs DNA proved he is the father. The DA just repeats, as fact, whatever victim says without proof.
