Drugs that often lead to legal problems in college

College life: Do you have a love/hate relationship with it? If so, you're among thousands of other college students in Oklahoma and throughout the nation who say there are things they love about college and major downsides as well. Most students struggle at some point to keep with their studies, especially if they have very active social lives. Hanging out and partying with friends can impact your study habits; it can also lead to other problems, such as those involving drugs.  

Should defendants receive a prison sentence for drug charges?

In a country full of overflowing prisons, this question has fueled many debates on the "drug war" in recent years. Prison incarceration has remained the standard for how courts and judges respond to drug charges. Because Oklahoma has the second-highest incarceration rate in America, more and more residents are now questioning this method of penalization.

What visual clues does the police look for to make a DUI arrest?

As you may know, tests confirming the level of alcohol in your body are the most important pieces of evidence that could lead to a conviction on DUI charges. In Oklahoma, if testing proves that your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures 0.08 or higher, DUI charges can stick to you like glue. However, the police must often rely on other elements to make the initial arrest.

Intent to kill or malice aforethought in murder/homicide charges

Like other states, Oklahoma recognizes different kinds of murder/homicide charges. These include first and second degree murder, first and second degree manslaughter and negligent homicide. All of these charges are extremely serious and could cost you your freedom if you're convicted.

What Our Clients Say

“Matt Swain helped me out of a situation that would have otherwise cost me money I didn't have, and precious time I couldn't spare. And he did it selflessly. If I ever need to turn to an attorney in the future, he would be my first call. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Norman/OKC area! His entire staff was kind and helpful from day one. Thank you all so much!�—Laura M.
