Thank you for using JustAnswer!
I am sorry to learn of your husband's circumstances.
The bond can be applied to any assessed fines and costs.
The judge will likely impose a fine and order that he cannot return to the property for a year.
Is there anything else that I can assist with?
Well, I know that in OK that there could be imposed jail time. . . is there anyway to find out how often that is issued vs. just the fines?
There really is no external way to find out. One would have to internally study the court's case management numbers. That's information which the general public does not have access to.If you are satisfied that your questions have been answered, kindly select ACCEPT to close this thread and so that I receive credit for assisting you today.
Okay, maybe I will, but one last question, please, WHO has access to the types of records to which you are referring?
the court administrator.
Court admin, as in court clerk?
the court administrator is the head of all of the court staff.
The court administrator oversees all of the operations of the court.
okay, I know you want to press "accept", so I'd like to do that. . . can WE solicit the court admin or can or lawyer, is that is even a legitimite, feasible request. . .
If you were my husband, would YOU hire a lawyer??? I will gladly press "accept", please answer
It is out of the ordinary and it's not data that the court administrator regularly mines or keeps track of.
Oh, gotcha. . . so, would YOU hire a lawyer considering the circumstances or just show up, plead "no contest", pay fines/etc.
If I did not recall the event, I would have a lawyer.
Okay, JB Umphrey. . . thanks for your 9 minutes of advise. Very appreciated.
You are most welcome. Have a good evening.
