If a person is convicted on burglary 2 charges for auto burglary and while incarcerated a bill passed changing that to burglary 3 with a much lighter sentence, can the new laws apply to the inmate resulting in a modified sentence or release?

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.

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.

Q: WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO RESCIND A DEED IN OKLAHOMA? MY DEED WAS DIVIDED AND NOT ALL PARTIES WERE PAID.

JOINT DEED, ONLY ONE PERSON GOT PAID, PARTY "A" QCD TO PARTY "B", THEN PARTY "C" REFUSED TO PARTICIPATE. IT WAS ABOUT MINERAL ESTATE IN OKLA

Richard Winblad
Richard Winblad answered on Aug 23, 2017

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.

Q: This is on a federal level. Is it legal in the United States to steal information from foreign governments?

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.

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... Read more »

Q: What does dismissal due to lack of jurisdiction mean to an imate that has filed a motion for reduction of sentence?
Howard Berkson
Howard Berkson answered on Oct 26, 2013

It means that the court in which you filed the motion does not have authority to rule on it. There are too many possibilities for me to be more specific about why the court decided it did not have authority.
