Keegan Kelley Harroz's answer Police officers do not have the power to charge you with anything. Police can only complete an investigation and then turn the evidence over to the local prosecutor who will decide whether to charge you or not, and what specifically you will be charged with.
Gary Johnston Dean's answer I believe so, but only time, and the Supreme Court will let us know for sure. I supported Trump, but it's getting harder to do. Just wish he would stop all of the Twitter stuff! ! !
Please visit my website, www.GaryJDean.com, and at the bottom of the homepage, "Subscribe" to receive occasional emails on Oklahoma Law, and changes. Thanks, Gary.
Keegan Kelley Harroz's answer Changes in the law are not retroactive unless the statute specifically states that the law is retroactive. This means that if the crime is classified as a felony at the time it was committed the crime is still a felony even if committed today it would have been a misdemeanor.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Depends what you mean by protect. Because you chose to, in a premeditated way, inject yourself you may violate a number of statutes, state and federal. I'm sure that you will find enough injustice in Oklahoma to work on that you won't need to go outside the state. Looks to me like antifa and the groups they rumble with are pretty well matched, and those groups don't need--and may resent your "protection." Local police certainly won't thank you for butting in, and may reach for the statute...
Gary Johnston Dean's answer It would certainly appear that the bailiff is out of line. I would suggest that you try to schedule an appointment with the Judge handling the case you are interested in to help resolve the issue. Failing that, you may want to contact the ACLU in OKC and see if they can help you.
