Case Dismissed and Expunged – First Degree Rape

Cherokee County District Court

Case Dismissed and Expunged – First Degree Rape

E.M., who is a permanent resident (has his green card) was charged with rape in the first degree.  After a preliminary hearing where the state of Oklahoma’s case was effectively dismantled, the district attorney offered E.M. a reduction from first degree rape to misdemeanor assault and battery, a no contest plea and a deferred sentence probation for one year and a $50 fine.

At the conclusion of the deferred sentence probation, E.M. will have the case dismissed and the case will be expunged from the public records.  E.M. happily accepted the plea deal and will be able to remain a free man.
