Q. If i got domestic violence charge 9 years ago and i just another one yesterday is it a felony
A: In Oklahoma, the answer depends on what happened with the prior charge as well as what the current allegations are in your new case. If the previous case resulted in a conviction (time to serve or a suspended sentence), then the current allegation can be charged as a felony. If a deferred sentence was completed on the previous case (resulting in no conviction) then an argument can be made that the new offense should be properly filed as a misdemeanor. If this is your situation, you should hire an experienced attorney to handle your case to make sure the case is handled as a misdemeanor. (Note: the law now treats deferred sentences on domestic violence offenses as convictions to enhance subsequent offenses to felonies; however, the law did not allow for that nine (9) years ago. An experienced attorney can litigate this issue for you). If the new case involves strangulation, a sharp or dangerous weapon, or great bodily injury, it can be filed as a felony. I encourage you to consult with an experienced attorney about your case.
Q. What is the time limit and rules in Oklahoma for filing a second page (after former) on a new charge ...same crime.etc
A: Your generic question is too broad to answer without going on for several pages. When it comes to sentence enhancements (after formers), there are different rules that apply depending on what prior convictions or deferred adjudications exist for a charged individual and with what an individual is currently charged. Domestic Abuse, Protective Order Violations, DUIs, Drug Charges, Sex Offenses, Child Abuse, and General Felonies are all treated differently. Your example of a manslaughter charge filed within 8 years after conviction of the felony of indecent exposure would be properly filed under the general sentence enhancement statute found in title 21 sections 51.1 and 51.2. See: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/deliverdocument.asp?cite=21+os+51.1 and http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/deliverdocument.asp?lookup=Next&listorder=379000&dbCode=STOKST21&year=
Q. Is post prison supervision something every offender has to do when released from prison?
A: All persons convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for state felonies in Oklahoma after November 1, 2012, are subject to nine (9) to twelve (12) months post-imprisonment supervision under the rules and conditions prescribed by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. See: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=466225
Q. How does oklahoma determine what county charges are filed in. Property was stolen in one county and recovered in anothe
A: Venue (where criminal charges can be properly filed) requires a connection of the crime to the county. In your scenario, venue for criminal charges could be in either county or both. The individual could be charged in the first county with larceny (or possibly burglary or robbery depending on the facts) and could also be charged in the second county with possessing/concealing stolen property.
Q. What are the statute of limitations on 3rd dui leaving scene of accident where damage was done and eludin police?
A: A statute of limitations requires the prosecutor to file charges within a certain period of time after the commission of a criminal offense. For DUI and eluding, the statute of limitations in Oklahoma requires the prosecutor to file charges within three (3) years. (See generally Oklahoma Statutes, Title 22, Section 152: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=70298). The time counting towards the three (3) year period only accrues if the accused is in the state; if the accused leaves the state or is not usually within the state, accrual of time towards the three (3) year period stops. (See Oklahoma Statutes, Title 22, Section 153: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=70299)
