You say you have 25 deferred. Do you mean suspended? It looks like from the title of your question (by your use of 10/25) that you received maybe a 25-year sentence with the first 10 years to serve for trafficking marijuana, and you were paroled at some point while serving the 10 years, is that...Read more »
I am a Chief of Police in Oklahoma, and I came across a couple that someone wanted to file a complaint on, the husband dresses and acts like a baby, and the wife acts as his mother, at no time was any indecent exposure present, and nothing sexual was present, however they were at a public park and...

Chief, from a state level, it is my understanding, so long as it doesn't violate the lewd and indecent statute then two consenting adults can dress and play as they see fit - this is no different in the eyes of the law as cross-dressing. Key issue is as you stated NO time indecent exposure or...Read more »
Subject Matter Jurisdiction issues are being argued based on McGirt and Murphy cases in Oklahoma. You need to be on a role and have a CBID card that shows you have a blood quantum. Further the crime must have occurred on Muskogee/Creek territory. I believe there has just been a ruling regarding...Read more »
Depends...if they are having a hard time finding their witness then I don't like it because it gives them ore time to find them. If on the other hand, they are contemplating new evidence that might exonerate you then it is a good thing. Generally, I prefer pushing forward and calling ready....Read more »
I scanned my items in self checkout. I noticed the machine was making a weird beeping when I scanned. Finally a worker came over and fixed it. So I went to leave and they asked for my receipt. They contained me saying I was a thief. I dont remember much of the event but I think she said I was... Read more »
It really depends on how many times you have gone to court whether the judge will give you more time. Usually, most judges, will give you time to retain an attorney. My suggestion is to contact at least two attorneys and get prices. Let the judge know that you have contacted those specific...Read more »
Generally speaking anytime there is an adult and the minor under the age of 16 years, you have considerable risk, in that the minor cannot give consent to anything. Also, Lewd Molestation, child pornography, etc. are charges that could be alleged for as little as selfies in bathing suits, or...Read more »
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 »
