Q. Is it considered domestic violence in oklahoma to with hold food from your spouse , domestic partner , common law wife
A: Well, I’m not sure I have enough information to give you any confident, legal advice. However, unless he is bedridden, and you are responsible for his care, or there is some legal status you possess where the law recognizes he is reliant upon you for his food, shelter, it’s highly unlikely that you’re committing any crime, certainly not domestic violence.

An archetypal example would be if he was some type of an invalid and required constant attention for food, bathing, medication. if you had some charge or duty to care for him recognized by law then there could be a problem of some type of neglect or abuse by a caretaker. However, based on the facts you have provided, as long as you don’t physically Attack him or touch him in an unwanted manner I’m not certain you’re committing any crime.

But, I do not represent you and you should immediately contact a seasoned criminal defense attorney or someone who practices some type of guardianship law for more precise guidance and advice. Best of luck!

Q. What happens on a failure to appear on child in danger ment
A: Well, a failure to appear on pretty much any criminal case across-the-board will be treated pretty much the same. With a few exceptions, the court (the judge) will Issue a warrant for your failure to appear (FTA). You will then be subjected to being arrested.

If you have a legitimate extenuating factor or excuse for your nonattendance (such as hospitalization for illness/ injury, missed flight, family emergency) your attorney needs to immediately communicate this to the Court as well as to the attorney for the state or prosecuting entity. Many times he problem can be remedied and you can avoid a warrant for your arrest. It’s pretty much all about communication in most instances.

Once a warrant IS issued by the judge, you will need to communicate with your BONDSMAN or bondswoman, explain your situation, and see if they are willing to stay on your bond. many times they will stay on your bond rather than abandon you.

These are all things that need to be communicated to your attorney who will guide you how best to handle your failure to appear at court and subsequent warrant.

Best of luck!

Q. Can Domestic abuse against a pregnant women. Be considered a felony first time incident.
A: Oklahoma statutory law indicates that a domestic assault and battery on a pregnant woman where the defendant had reason to know she was pregnant is a felony offense carrying up to 5 years in the department of corrections. If the woman suffers a miscarriage as a result of the assault and battery it carries up to 20 years in the department of corrections.

If the defendant has no reasonable knowledge that the woman was pregnant, then first offense should be a misdemeanor carrying up to one year in the County Jail.

Best of luck!
