Drug crime charges require careful defense strategies

Drugs crimes are seen by some as victimless crimes since adults who use drugs willingly purchase them. This doesn't mean that the laws see the situation in the same way. For this reason, Oklahoma has very strict laws against making, selling and using drugs. People who are found to be breaking the law will face criminal charges.

Are breath test results always accurate?

While watching television or movies, you've probably seen the depiction of law enforcement officers utilizing breath test machines. Maybe you've even witnessed it in real life. It is that little box officers ask drivers to breathe into when they suspect them of driving drunk. Law enforcement officers in Oklahoma depend on these devices to get impaired drivers off of the road, but are these machines always accurate?

What are the marijuana-related penalties in Oklahoma?

Many states have imposed a variety of laws in recent years largely decriminalizing the possession of recreational marijuana. This has resulted in many individuals receiving nothing more than a simple slap on the wrist and a fine for many small-scale drug offenses. Oklahoma continues to treat marijuana as an illicit drug. Individuals convicted of marijuana-related crimes face stiff penalties, even for simple possession offenses.

Release from prison after a murder conviction can be challenging

Being accused of murder is a life-changing event, but being convicted of murder is more devastating. A defendant in this type of case must think carefully about their defense strategy. This includes the purpose of the defense. For some, the goal of the defense isn't to be found not guilty. Instead, it is to minimize the penalties that the person faces.

Alcohol monitoring is often required after DUI convictions

The court can place many requirements on a person who is convicted of drunk driving. Many people have probably heard of the ignition interlocks that prevent a vehicle from starting if there is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) percentage noted in a breath sample required before the car is started. A person who must have the ignition interlock can't drive any vehicle that isn't equipped with one.
