  • Whats the chances of no jail time with an after former conviction of a felony charge

    search warrant was issued at my boyfriends aunts and he was detained. he has prior felony convictions and now has been charged with possession with intent (cd and marijuana), tax stamp, trafficking methamphetamines, and posssession of a firearm.....

    John’s Answer

    Every case is different but your boyfriend is looking at serious charges with significant jail time. That being said, the strength of the case as well as any issues involved can definitely affect the outcome of the case. There isn't anyway to properly answer your question without knowing the facts of the case, his background as well as which judge and district attorney's office he is dealing with. His attorney will the best one to answer the questions you have posed.

  • Does anyone have any grounds to file charges on me?

    employer fired me for report of being involved with client and providing drugs. i was never asked to confirm or deny report - another employee make report. I sent letter to client asking why choose me, I feel in love with him. Did not sign letter

    John’s Answer

    If someone witnessed the alleged transaction (providing illegal drugs) and they file a police report, the police could investigate and pursue charges. It was wise not to sign the document. If contacted by the police or anyone else asking questions....do not answer or discuss it at all. If the police contact you, politely refuse to talk to them and contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately. It is almost impossible to talk your way out of charges. The cops are talking to you because they are trying to gather evidence to be used against you.

  • My wife was assaulted by a asset protection guy from wal mart she was innocent this time and doing nothing wrong he punched her

    in the side of her head and knocked her to the ground we want to no how to address the issue they have done wrong and need to pay for it

    John’s Answer

    As your wife was assaulted, I would file a police report. Then you will want to find a local attorney that handles personal injury cases to discuss whether you have a claim. I would suggest acting fast as it may be possible to obtain the tapes from the store

  • What would be the outcome

    I was given a 5yr deferred sentence for one count of bogus check under 500 which holds a sentence of up to one year in jail or a 1000 dollar fine or both. My 5yrs is up in a month and a warrant has been issued for application to accelerate. I have...

    John’s Answer

    If they show that you violated your probation, they can accelerate your deferred to a conviction, put you back on probation, or even put you in jail for up to a year. If you haven't been picked up on the warrant, it is possible that an attorney may be able to go in with the full amount to pay it and get the app dismissed. You may even be able to have a friend (do not go down yourself as they will arrest you on the warrant) take a money order in for you to pay it and then call them afterwards to see if they will dismiss the app. They primarily just want the restitution. I will add as a caveat, I do not practice in Tulsa County so my opinions here are based on my dealings with the Oklahoma County DA's office. Tulsa may still make you go to court even if you pay it so it may be worth your time to schedule a consultation with a local lawyer in Tulsa. Most offer a free consultation.

    Good luck

    John’s Answer

    If he is in the Oklahoma County Jail and can't afford an attorney, then the OK COunty public defenders office will be appointed to represent him. Their number is 405-713-1550. However, until they are appointed, they probably won't be able to tell you much.

    John’s Answer

    There are several ways for OK to take your blood without your consent. If you were unconscious or incapable of giving consent, then the consent is implied and they will take it but you can later withdraw the inmplied consent. The other way is if there has been an accident with serious bodily injury or death to another person, then they do not need your consent. Also, if they obtained a warrant, they can take your blood without your consent. It is quite possible that you may have DUI charges coming down the road, ( or worse if there was serious injuries) and thus, I would highly suggest you contact a lawyer to discuss his matter in further detail so steps could be taken to protect you down the road if required.

  • Can my public defender file a motion for discovery before preliminary?

    I was told that he could but wanted to ask before I asked him too.

    John’s Answer

    In Oklahoma, there is some limitied discovery that will be provided to him before the prelim. However, under OK law, even though your attorney could file a discovery motion, the state doens't have to provide until 10 days before trial unless ordered otherwise by the court.

  • Does my 15 year old need an attorney for holding pot in school?

    He was fourteen at the time a kid said hold this and he did and got caught, he made a stupid mistake and was expelled from school. And ticketed

    John’s Answer

    I would highly recommend getting an attorney that handle juvenile law. Although you may get him through the system without an attorney, you may be stuck in the system for a very long time. My experience with the juvenile system is that once they get you in the system...it is very difficult to complete everything and get out of the system as they keep adding or changing the "treatment plan"

    John’s Answer

    I am assuming this is in Canadian County. Generally, the DAs are easy to deal with and get recs from at the court proceedings. If it is a technical violation (ie...couldn't pay), then it should be fairly easy to get something worked out. I would suggest getting everything caught up before his court date if possible so they can show that he is in compliance. Good luck.
