Before a defendant can be sentenced to any period of incarceration, pursuant to a criminal statute or ordinance, each and every element of that crime must be proved to a trier of fact (meaning a judge or jury) by the standard “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Only an Oklahoma attorney could advise, as your situation could involve state or county-specific law, but your question remains open for two weeks. If something was to happen, as a general matter, there's nothing to stop a motorist from suing in such settings. Nationwide (without knowing about... Read more »
IF someone is shot fleeing the police and never fired a round can the cops say he fired at the cops to justify shooting him?
answered on Sep 2, 2022
You ask two questions here. The first question regards when a civil suit should be filed (if a criminal case is pending). The answer to that question is you should not wait to talk to a civil attorney about proceeding with a civil suit until the criminal case is closed. There are too many pitfalls... Read more »

Short answer is people post many things on social media - often before thinking about the long-term effect. Can you and should you are not necessarily equal partners. As with almost every lawyer, the advice is do not post it. Seek counseling for you both, and if that fails then dissolution can... Read more »

Not sure your question relates to the result you are seeking. The deputies actions would have to be viewed in the light of all other calls taken, as well as your availability when they were responding to the call. If you were not home when they were cleared off their other calls and you were at... Read more »
Dispute is between a private resident and a construction company invoice for work performed at home.

An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. A civil litigation attorney should be able to handle a straightforward one. If the matter is highly technical with engineering or architectural attributes, there are construction law attorneys. Good luck

Possibly, but the burden to trace it and show it was purchased from VA funds is on you.

In essence the answer is no, but the Oklahoma Administrative Code 710:65-19-143 does spell it out a little.

It appears you have a few issues that must be addressed. One is whether a crime was committed - which if so the police could enter the vehicle as stolen in the national database. Another is whether you had a valid contract with the purchaser. Third, is whether an actual sale of the vehicle... Read more »
My car was caught in the crossfire of a shooting that occurred at a 7/11 a month ago. My car suffered damage, and I was indeed in my vehicle the time of the shooting. Luckily, I did not have any physical injuries. I am needing direction on how and who to hold responsible for my damages.
answered on Nov 8, 2021
For restitution for the damages to your vehicle, contact the DA's office prosecuting the individuals who were shooting. If you don't know if charges have been filed, you can contact the police department to inquire. The DA's office will generally have you fill out and submit a... Read more »

If a protective order has been filed, hire an attorney to defend you. You do not want a PO to be entered because it can follow you and impact your life in many ways.
Best of luck.

More details are needed, however a simple motion is only that until a judge has a hearing and makes a ruling on that motion. Therefore, until that time the short answer would be no.
HE. FIRST said my tags were out then he said he couldn't read them. Then wrote the ticket AND TOOK me to jail.is that legal?
answered on Oct 6, 2021
If the stop is found to be valid - unable to read the license plate because it’s dirty, covered, sticker in wrong spot, etc… would most likely be determined as valid, then yes the no license issue is also enforceable.

It depends on when the account was officially closed. Theoretically there is a SOL but that may not even start for years after you think it started. Contact an attorney that can delve into this in more detail.

Verbal contracts are enforceable. However, they are harder to enforce. You would have to file a lawsuit against the party that didn't perform under the terms of the verbal contract. You would need witnesses to testify in court of the verbal contract and the terms. The judge would determine if... Read more »
is there a way to overturn this since i was common law married to him and there was no will in place
answered on Mar 22, 2021
I am sorry for your loss.
If you were common law married, you can fight this and argue to prove it in court. You'll need to contact an attorney to go through the specifics here because this will be very fact intensive.
I wish you the best.

This would depend on the details and the specific reason the court made that ruling. Did you have an attorney or were you trying to represent yourself?
answered on Feb 8, 2021
This can dependent on who removed the vehicle and from where. If the vehicle was on private property then §901 would not apply and therefore the 48 hours that you are wanting to enforce is not applicable because the land owners rights supersede your vehicle rights. If the vehicle was removed by... Read more »
