As I recently wrote in my article for the Huffington Post regarding former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle's federal charges, I have, and continue to, handle a lot of cases dealing with child pornography and sexual crimes against children. Consequently, there isn't much I run into while defending these cases which surprises me. Read More
In our continuing conversations with the deans of law schools around the region, I reached out to Dean Darby Dickerson of the Texas Tech University School of Law. Dean Dickerson has been the Dean of the TTU school of law since July 2011. Prior to leading the law school at Texas Tech, she was the Interim Dean and Dean of the Stetson University College of Law in Florida, where she served from 2003 until coming to TTU in 2011. Read More
In June, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed into law a number of bills that passed the state legislature and will take effect in November. Among those is Senate Bill 412, which significantly expands the number of criminal offenses included as "violent crimes." The distinction between violent offenses and nonviolent offenses is important, because those convicted of violent crimes are more likely to serve mandatory minimum sentences (as in "85 Percent Crimes"), may be more likely to have to register as a violent offender pursuant to the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act, and are far less likely to become eligible for record expungement.

On June 29, 2015, the United States Supreme Court issued the opinion in the Oklahoma death penalty case Glossip v. Gross. In the majority opinion, SCOTUS once again affirmed the contstitutionality of the death penalty. While some see the decision as a potential "light at the the end of the tunnel," I feel as though the High Court has upheld a bar that will be exceedingly difficult to acheieve in future challenges to the methods and means of executing inmates in the United States of America.

Oklahoma has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the nation. It ranks highly in the number or women killed by men. It also has the country's highest incarceration rate of women, many of whom are victims of domestic violence punished for "allowing" the actions of their abusive partners. With high numbers of cases of domestic violence, stalking, and harassment in Oklahoma, Victim's Protective Orders, sometimes referred to as "restraining orders," have an important place in protecting those who are threatened with violence.
