Frequently Asked Questions
What is the role of a prosecutor?
The prosecutor is the attorney who represents the federal, state or local government in a case against a criminal defendant. The title of the prosecutor varies by jurisdiction, but some common titles include district attorney, county attorney, city attorney, United States attorney, and state attorney. The prosecutor has the public duty to punish those committing crimes, balanced with the duty to fairly try such individuals.
I am not sure I want a divorce, what are my options?
“I am not sure I want a divorce, what are my options?” The three different types of marriage dissolution in Oklahoma are divorce, annulment, and separation. Divorce provides relief in several areas. It provides for more than just the dissolution of a marriage. It may also provide for child custody and child visitation, child support, property division, spousal support alimony, a name change, divorce attorney’s fees, and a restraining order. In a divorce case, the petitioner must state the grounds for which the divorce should be granted. There are many grounds for divorce in Oklahoma, including adultery. But, the most common grounds for divorce in Oklahoma is incompatibility. Legally, this is defined as a conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of matrimony and the possibility of reconciliation. In reality, this means neither party is at fault for the deterioration of the relationship. The couple just cannot get along anymore, and the possibility of the couple renewing their marriage is highly unlikely.

If I am innocent, why do I need a lawyer??
Innocent people do get accused of committing crimes every day. Also, people who may have committed one crime often get accused (sometimes wrongfully) of committing additional, and more serious crimes. As the accused, you have a constitutional right to counsel. You are always better off having a lawyer learn about the accusation, discuss it with you, and develop a strategy for responding to the charge.
Even if you wholeheartedly believe you are innocent, NEVER EVER NEVER talk to the police, investigator, prosecutor until you have legal counsel…Don’t take my word for it, listen to the thousands of people wrongfully convicted and sitting in jail.
What is a felony?
A felony is a crime that carries a punishment of at least one year and one day in jail.
Will I go to jail?
If you have arrived at this question after asking yourself “Will I go to jail” you need to know that there is hope.
For most people, this is the scariest question. The good news is that for most people, the answer is no. If you are facing a misdemeanor or a nonviolent felony and you don’t have a long criminal record, you likely will not go to jail. However, there is always that risk. Also, because your final sentence is up the judge, there are no guarantees. You should never be under the false impression that you have no defense and should just confess without an attorney. You should never give a statement or information to law enforcement without first speaking to an attorney. The criminal procedure world is filled with complex procedure and nuisances that could impact you for the rest of your life. It is imperative that you educate yourself with the most criminal procedure and law you possibly can and get the best quality legal advice and representation.
Also, most first time offenders are offered deals that sound really enticing (no jail time and the worry is over). These are called suspended or deferred sentences. They sound really good, but the long term risks are very substantial. For instance, if one little requirement is not met (not paying fees on time, late checking in with probation officer, or getting charged with another crime) the the state will move to revoke that sentence and you could then be placed in jail for the remainder of the term. Before you take a plea deal, please speak with a criminal defense attorney that will take the time to discuss your case and educate you on the pitfalls, risks, and benefits of suspended and deferred sentences.
Lastly, if you are in a situation where you see no hope in your defense, you might be very surprised as what can be done for your case. Criminal law, procedure and rules of evidence are very complex and the state must prove your guilt beyond all reasonable doubt and the verdict must be unanimous. That presents an incredible burden for the state (even with the high levels of juror biased and the common perception of “guilty until proven innocent”) there are many many cases that receive not-guilty jury verdicts – so don’t give up hope and get your self the right criminal defense attorney for you and your case.
