When you say testified, do you mean in court under oath? If that is the case, then I would question why the father still has unsupervised visitation? If you came to me with that claim, I would probably start by calling his attorney and try to get an agreement to adjust the visitation temporarily...Read more »
Her next court date isn't for another month and a half. She was on ankle monitor at time the crime happened and also there's a video of the couple that actually did it. She doesn't need to sit in jail any longer for something we never did. And what kind of legal action can we take... Read more »
The trial judge has ordered a cash appeal bond be payed at the time of or prior to the filing of the notice of intent to appeal. This bond is in the same amount as the fines I was sentenced to. Is this not a denial of the right every person has to appeal in every case in Oklahoma? Seems that if... Read more »
Have your mother call the DA's office int he county where her car was stolen and the suspect is in jail. Tell them how much it would cost to fix, or what the vehicle was worth before the transmission was destroyed. The DA's office should include in their charges restitution, which they...Read more »
there were two suspects. One already plead guilty and the other was the one that used my name and ssn apparently. There is a warrant for my arrest. From my understanding the person that used my name never showed up to court, I guess. I need help
If the person was arrested (may be tricky to tell, but if you want me to look to see, contact me directly), then that person was fingerprinted. If that is the case, there is a process to verify that you are not the person and you can receive a letter from OSBI confirming you are not the person same...Read more »
A case may be dismissed for many reasons. If your attorney filed or orally argued a motion to suppress the evidence under Brady or Kyles, or if the change makes it such that the witnesses will be easily impeached at preliminary hearing or trial, then the DA may choose to dismiss instead of facing...Read more »
The right thing to do is to repay her. This will not guarantee that you won't be charged, but she would have to testify that she did not give you permission to use her credit. I would think it is unlikely she would want to testify against you, if you made things right. Depending on the...Read more »
My fiancé is wanting me to find out how to obtain a copy of his discovery packet he has no attorney Would this be something that I could do for him and if so what steps do I take and who do I contact if not then who would he need to contact
If he has been designated but he court as acting pro se, then all he needs to do is request it from he DA's office. There may be a nominal charge. If he is in custody, then he should have had a Public Defender appointed to defend him on his charges, and the Public Defender should provide him...Read more »
The answer to your question is "yes, it is legal." That is because you did not have more than one deferred judgment within the 10 years before committing the crime that led to you receiving the deferred judgment in June 2020. The relevant statute reads as follows:
Felony warrants stemming from criminal investigations can be served day or night. I suspect this is what happened. You need to contact an attorney immediately to get a copy of the warrant in order to see if there’s anyway to challenge it’s Validity
The best thing you can do is hire a criminal defense attorney and follow your attorney's advice. There are a variety of ways to defend the charges you describe, but each case is different. The defense strategy recommended by your attorney will be largely dependent upon the facts and evidence...Read more »
You need to mediately hire a criminal defense attorney. Your attorney can request all of the discovery material, the evidence. He can then scrutinize it carefully to determine whether or not they have charged you with unnecessary or duplicate counts.
My felony warrant was recalled. Prosecution filed a motion to recall pursuant McGirt v. Oklahoma. Since the Feds will be flooded with back cases as well as current cases, my guess is the most violent ones will take priority and not refile on all the rest. But if they somehow do decide to prosecute... Read more »
Generally speaking, no. A federal warrant issued pursuant to a grand jury indictment, information, or complaint is usually filed under seal until the arrest has been made. The federal government uses the PACER system for court records, which is available to the public, but you must have an account...Read more »
The Mcgirt case already caused the State to recall a felony warrant they had on me. Since they lacked jurisdiction on the other felonies I had that I discharged over 15yrs ago does that mean I can hire a lawyer to file the paperwork to get those felonies taken off my record and essentially not be a...

Yes, that might be possible; however, it is only certain felony crimes that the federal government has exclusive jurisdiction (thus depriving the State of Oklahoma of jurisdiction). For all other felonies committed on Indian Country committed by or against Native Americans, the State of Oklahoma...Read more »
My ex and I entered into a temporary visitation agreement. He has is currently supposed to be monitored by his mother to see the kids, but is asking to have the monitored visits lifted. He and his live in girlfriend both were recently arrested for public intox and he was arrested for resisting... Read more »
The public intoxication charge is the real issue. It shows that he is not capable of controlling his addiction. Having him kept on monitored visitation seems reasonable. I would even suggest supervised visitation might be in order. I think an example of greater self control would be needed...Read more »
You indicate you are charged with "level 6" criminal recklessness and two "level 5" felony intimidation charges. Where are your charges? I am not aware of any Oklahoma state statutes that use the levels such as the ones you reference in your question.
Generally, this forum is used by people who have specific legal questions. The attorneys on here try to answer the questions as best we can with the limited information we receive. Your post just is just seeking help without any specifics (aside from letting us know you do not have any money)....Read more »

You need to retain a criminal defense attorney immediately. Even if not considered a valid excuse for missing court, the loss of your father is certainly an “extenuating circumstance” that an attorney could possibly persuade the Court (Judge) to excuse and withdraw the warrant without you...Read more »
