    In many states, there are so many exceptions to the Fourth Amendment that it almost is non-existent. However, if it was truly a violaton of his rights to be free from illegal search and seizure, then the State must respond to the motion and the court must determine if the search violated his rights. If so, that evidence should not be admissible. The rest of the answer would depend on other facts. If all "incriminating" evidence is suppressed, then he would "walk."

    The answer may depend on what type of crime was committed and how you violated your probation. Yes, they can come pick you up immediately, but unless it is a violent crime, you may have some time to work it out. Talk with a local lawyer. You might try Clint James at Graham, Allen & Brown.

    It may depend on whether you are charged in municipal court in Durant or in the Bryan County District Court. Either way, you need to seek a deferred sentence if you are guilty. Under the new expungement laws, even if you get a deferred sentence and it is on your OSBI record for a while, you may be able to have it sealed from public view 2 years after your probation ends. If it is a felony (and $50 is not), then you would have to wait 10 years after your probation ends. Try to keep it in...

    Because it has been longer than one year, you cannot seek judicial review or modification. However, you might be able to petition the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board for a "commutation" of the sentence. Note, however, that 7 years is the minimum for burglary 1 in Oklahoma, so the chances of a reduction are slim. Also, I'm guessing that he had a prior conviction if he got the full seven years. Best wishes.

    It is possible that the District Attorney declined charges, but the Municipal Attorney is still reviewing for a City code violation. Otherwise, it is just a "timing" issue as described in the other answers.

    There are too many missing facts to give you advice. However, she has a constitutional right to a speedy and public trial. If she is innocent, she should demand a speedy trial. If she is in jail and truly cannot afford a lawyer, she is entitled to a court-appointed lawyer and should demand to see one.

  8. Pest control employment with a felony

    The answer may depend on whether you have to have a license to be a pest control employee or whether you work under their license. If you are a felon, likely you cannot get a license to handle hazaardous materials. You need to look into this further. Also, you won't be able to work in any schools if you are a registered sex offender. Sounds like you might be one. Best wishes.

    Apply for a court-appointed lawyer. Then have him try to get the evidence suppressed if there are any legal grounds. Otherwise, seek a deferred sentence or a pretrial diversion. You always need a lawyer with a drug case. Any "conviction" can cause a loss of your driver's license in Oklahoma. Get a lawyer. Also, sounds like a case of simple possession.

    I agree that you need a lawyer. It sounds like you have admitted the theft, but if not, do NOT admit anything. Paying back the money is a wise idea. If you can borrow from friends and family to get everything paid off ASAP and in a lump sum, you might avoid prosecution or might be able to have a lawyer negotiate a pre-trial diversion. You would be on a "secret" probation for a while, but it gives you a chance to avoid a charge. If you cannot pay back in full and before the DA gets around...
