    The short answer to each of your questions is 'yes'. According to the law in Oklahoma "Rape is an act of sexual intercourse involving vaginal or anal penetration accomplished with a male or female who is not the spouse of the perpetrator under any of the following circumstances: (1) Where the victim is under sixteen (16) years of age." The 18 year old in the realtionship could receive up to 15 years in prison if convicted and be required to register as a sex offender.

  2. Ignore an out-of-state speeding ticket?

    Most times when a person gets a ticket they are released upon their own recognizance to show up for court on a certain by signing the ticket and without a bond. If they fail to show up, then the court will typically issue a warrant for their arrest, raise the ticket amount and perhaps issue a new charge for failure to appear. The court typically notifies the state department of public safety or DMV of the unpaid ticket and, even though an out of state party, the DPS/DMV will likely revoke or...

    Above should read: Suspicion of a PARTICULAR drug is not neccessary. However, the same features of the suspect (blood shot, glassy eyes, speech issues, staggering, stumbling, etc.) are typically used to justify the further presumption that the person is under the influence of something, if alcohol is ruled out by breath analysis, like a drug. As mentioned above though, defenses and counter argument exist to rebut this presumption.

    It is fairly typical that an officer will take the position that the arrested peron must be under the influence of something or the officer wouldn't have arrested them - they simply can't admit to being wrong. Yes, to consent to one test and refuse another can be characterized as a refusal to test and be held against you. Actually, in Oklahoma the suspicion of drugs is unneccessary for the officer to proceed to a blood test in the event that he asks for a breath test first. The implied...

    Many jurisdictions in Oklahoma have deferred sentencing available which is like what was referenced by the previous author. A defered sentence is one where the case (ticket) is dimissed by the State following a period of probation. However, where the case is filed, either Municipal or District court, will determine what penalties your daughter is facing and what types of case resolutions are available to her. As she is a college student, there may be options available to her to expunge, or...

    In light of these additional facts, and with my reading of multiple statues, the "dating" described would probably not be illegal under our current laws. However, and this is a HUGE however, there are multiple and varied portions of the law which could apply to situations where the now 'innocent' dating could lead, and which could have dramatic and harmful effects on the 18 year old male.

    No, a public notary cannot certify copies made by a court clerk after their reproduction. You should contact the court clerk where the order of expungement originated and have that office certify copies of the order from the court file. Good luck.

    The short answer to your question is that it is highly unlikely that any Oklahoma lawyer can resolve your toll ticket for $50 if you choose to pay it. Court costs alone will exceed $50 on any traffic ticket filed in any district court in Oklahoma, and the court costs alone for a municipal ticket come very, very close to that $50 threshold. At this point, the reasons you have to hire an attorney is to do one of two things on your behalf: (1) Negotiate the fine on the ticket to try to achieve a...

    While the ex might simply attempting to jealously stir up trouble, the "dating" you have described would probably not be illegal according to the current law in Oklahoma. However, and this is a HUGE however, there are multiple and varied portions of the law which might apply to situations where the now 'innocent' nonsexual dating could lead, and which could have dramatic and harmful effects on the 18 year old female. I would advise a good dose of caution at this point if a well thought out...

    It's hard to evaluate your case without more facts, but with no history of criminal offenses, its at least possible that the district attorney will be open to the idea of probation in your case. The value of the property you are alleged to have stolen will have an effect upon the maximum range of punishment the law requires in a grand larceny case (more or less than $500), and ultimately the range of any probation you might be offered. If you are interested in reading more, I have included...
