Legal Answers
129 Questions Answered
Q. Can county issue a warrant for failure to appear if they've been notified that the person is in jail in another county
A: Typically, the courts will issue a warrant if a defendant does not appear as previously ordered - even if the defendant is in custody somewhere else. The court typically won't order the bond forfeited if it is clear the person is in custody elsewhere, but that helps the bondsman and not the defendant. The 10 days you reference has to do with inmates who are in custody in another state and waive extradition. There is not technically a ten-day rule for counties within the same state. Further, the county where he is incarcerated will not be required to release him to a warrant from another county until he resolves the case or matter in the county where he is incarcerated - unless he posts a bond in that county.
Q. What are the steps that need to be taken when someone has used my name for 5 court cases? 2 of them have warrants
A: You should contact an attorney. However, I also am providing a link to a OSBI's website, which contains some helpful information. If the person who has used your name has been fingerprinted, OSBI can verify that your fingerprints are not the same as the individual who used your name. Upon verification, they will provide you something in writing and enter something in their system regarding this, which should help in the future should you get pulled over and the officer believes you are the same person. Click (or copy and paste) the following link (also, call OSBI before appearing to have your fingerprints taken, since the procedures for doing such may have been updated since this was posted): https://osbi.ok.gov/content/someone-has-used-my-name-date-birth-etc-how-do-i-get-my-information-hisher-record
Q. My friend received a simple driving under suspension ticket, and paraphernalia charge. How much time will they get?
A: Every case is different, but it is possible your friend won't have to serve any time. Each crime you describe is a misdemeanor and each has the potential of a sentence no longer than a year in the county jail. Your friend should contact a criminal defense attorney.
