Alimony

The answer, of course, is that it depends.  In Oklahoma, Alimony (also know as spousal support) is getting less common by our observation, but it is still available to an eligible party.

To be eligible to receive Alimony from another person the proposed recipient has to:

(1) be married to the proposed payor of the alimony
(2) be getting divorced or legally separated from the payor
(3) be able to demonstrate a genuine need for spousal support
(4) show that the proposed payor has the means to pay spousal support.

Contraband

It is illegal for anybody to bring certain forms of contraband into a jail or prison in Oklahoma.

57 O.S. §21 Provides that persons bringing guns, knives, bombs, or any dangerous instrument, any controlled dangerous substance, any intoxicating beverage or low-point beer, money or financial instruments for anyone other than the inmate or their spouse (including tax returns!) is guilty of a felony and subject to a penalty of from 1 to 5 years in prison.

It provides that an inmate in possession of the above items is subject to a term of 5 to 20 years in prison and that inmates with two or more prior felony convictions are subject to a term of 10 to 20 years in state prison.
