I do not know what "these" charges are.

Without a comprehensive review, it would be impossible to answer.

If he is facing serious charges, then a relatively small amount of money spent now may realize tremendous future savings.

Retain an attorney.

Or if he has not committed the crime, the way to avoid charges is not to commit it.

Is he in federal or state custody? If federal, he has to comply with Interstate Agreement on Detainers. you can probably find it by googling that and adding Oklahoma

If state, then he either files a motion or a petition for habeas corpus ad prosequendum

If the DA filed those charges against you or someone else, I would bet they have evidence which they think can be used to prove the elements of the crime. In answer to your question it basically was answered by your question. If they have no proof they would be incapable of convicting someone of that crime.

It is not, however you should contact the other party to advise they have no consent to access your private accounts. You should also seek to protect those accounts. Should those accounts be accessed, it can constitute an illegal “hacking,” and you should file a police report immediately.

Yes, a warrant is required to obtain records belonging to someone without their consent. If a warrant is obtained the owner of the data has no right to be notified.

The mother can't charge anybody with anything. All she can do is report it to the police who might then refer the case to the District Attorney.

No, they should not have entered your home, nor threatened your child. They however did have the right to ask your son about the other boy.

Your question is not really clear. Sounds like Party C did not sign any deed. Party A can sell only his/her own interest. If these are mineral interests Party C should be unaffected by A's deed.

I need much more information to answer your question, but countries have been stealing from other countries at least since Queen Elizabeth I issued letters of marque to Sir Francis Drake. Since those letters of marque, few countries have admitted giving a license to steal, and the US is a signatory of treaties that prohibit stealing and provide for international enforcement. A consult under the protection of attorney client privilege seems to be in order here, i.e., don't answer in a public...

Best source would be the ACLU prison project. Question I'd have is have you seen this or just heard this. NOrmally it would be a violation of federal Bureau of Prisons policy but that may have changed. Again check with ACLU prison project or similar project for the Oklahoma Civil Liberites Union.

The fastest and easiest way is to create an account at pacer.gov and search there for the cases. Pacer is relatively cheap and easy to use. The older the cases are, the less likely they will be there, especially as you get toward 20 years old. If the cases are not on PACER, you should contact the clerk of the court in the district where the charges were filed to see what records are available and how much they would cost to obtain.
