No!

“No”

These are my personal thoughts on the word no.

It’s a short word, among the shortest, but in my opinion, the word no is the basis of American society and has been since the beginning.  All of your political rights are founded on the right to tell the government no.  

Don’t like the current government?  Say no and vote for someone else.  

Don’t want the police to search your home without a warrant?  Say no; make them get a warrant supported by probable cause.

I don't really know.

TRAFFICKING IN ILLEGAL DRUGS: MANDATORY IMPRISONMENT…..USUALLY

Drug “Trafficking” remains the only drug crime in Oklahoma that carries with it mandatory prison time, even for the first offense.  This harsh punishment is much tougher than the penalties for first-time offenders who commit even violent crimes.  Indeed, armed robbers, stabbers, drive-by shooters (“Using a Vehicle to facilitate the Intentional Discharge of a Firearm), and even those who MAKE methamphetamine are eligible for probation on their first and ofte

Probation Eligibility: The Exceptions Make the Rule

People who have had prior brushes with the law often want to know if they are eligible for probation.  This is perhaps one of the most complex questions within Oklahoma criminal defense law.  IN GENERAL, a person is not eligible for probation on a new felony crime if the have two or more previous felony convictions.  Note the word “felonies” as, again in general, misdemeanors neither impact a person’s eligibility for future probation nor are themselves ever
