First-degree murder is taken extremely seriously in Oklahoma. Viewed by the justice system as the worst crime a person could commit, it carries the harshest penalties in the state. Those charged of first-degree murder may feel helpless, but there are defenses available that can provide hope.
It was on February 18, 2019, that a man was arrested for eluding police. The first law the man violated during the incident was failing to pull over for an emergency vehicle in Valley Brook. Police officers saw the incident and signaled for the man to pull over. The man, though, sped off instead of complying with the officers. The man was eventually caught and was arrested on a number of charges. However, was he arrested for eluding the police, or for other crimes?
