Assuming the value of what has been alleged to have been stolen exceeds $1000, then the range of punishment for a Grand Larceny AFCF (with one prior or with two or more priors with none of them being a felony enumerated in Title 57, Section 571) is 0 to 10 years. Grand Larceny AFCF (with two...Read more »
There’s not enough information to answer your question with specificity. Grand larceny has different grades of punishment based upon the value of the items stolen.

There is a misconception that the Possession of CDS law was made retroactive. Instead of doing that, the Legislature enacted a law providing relief to individuals currently serving a sentence for a crime that occurred before the crime became a misdemeanor.

They cannot force, but they can sure threaten. Their argument is if she doesn't follow through, then she is endangering the children, and they can potentially take the kids away and for a deprivation hearing.

I was given a 5 year deferred sentence for embezzlement charges in 2016. I’ve paid all fines and have been on unsupervised probation since 12/2017 after only 13 months of probation.

The first question I would have is whether you paid all of your fines and probation fees? If you had, then it should have been dismissed and expunged from OSCN, when you showed up for court on your Deferred review date. On the other hand, if it was dismissed and expunged, that is only on OSCN....Read more »
The oath is not about truthfulness, but instead to fulfill their duties as law enforcement and to protect the public. The courts have decided that lying is a part of their job. Yes, upside down logic. Do as I say, not as I do.
It is not illegal to have a digital scale, even if you are in drug court. Having her do a controlled buy is out of line in my opinion for what at best is a misdemeanor, and most likely not a crime at all. The caveat is if the scales had residue that presumptively tested positive. Still, I would...Read more »
Adultery is a crime in Oklahoma, 21 OK Stat § 21-871. It is a felony, but the reality is you will have a hard time finding a DA who will actually file those charges. In my opinion, your better course of action is to file for divorce and then fight for custody, especially since the courts tend to...Read more »
That is a highly charged political question. I guess it depends on the county. What I have seen in Tulsa County is a far greater number of Possession with Intent charges. Although they are no longer sending people to prison for a small bag of anything, they are doing everything in their power to...Read more »
State filed an application to revolk on a previous deffered drug charge. He has filled for CT appointed attry, 5 times and had been denied. He simply can not come in with the 2k the attorneys wants. His sentencing is next week without an attorney..!!!! How can this happen?

It would depend on the code of conduct, or the administrative rules within your school. It is not a criminal action less they intend to charge your child with public intoxication.

Yes I love in Oklahoma the legal age of consent here is 16 and I'm with a guy ten years older than me my mom approves completely but I was wanting to know could the state still press charges on my mother or boyfreind since I'm the age of consent

I hate to say it, but yes. There is an option for relief. You can ask the court to review your costs and fines and depending on your financial situation you can be given relief by the court. Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg made a big deal out of overly punitive court costs and fines being an...Read more »
Wonder if a prosecutor misrepresented facts responding to my complaint to the OBA. It was a 1st offense for violating a protection order. Prosecutor claims that title 22 O.S. sect 234 gives her the descretion to refile as a felony. But from what I read it only allows a felony to be amended to a... Read more »
The DA cannot file a VPO first offense as a felony unless there are other charges added. You are correct 22 O.S. 234 provides what I would call a relief valve for special circumstances where a non-violent crime, which is a felony, may be amended down to a misdemeanor in the interest of justice....Read more »
If the vehicle is titled in both your names, it is hard to represent it as stolen since he has a valid claim of ownership. I don't think you have a way through police or the DA's Office to get the vehicle back. The only thing that comes to mind is small claims court. The argument is a breach of...Read more »
