Oklahoma, but the fellas are all over the country and the uk.
The state never provides evidence to support its claim of jurisdiction over you, because there is none unless you agree to it.
Youve read Lysander Spooner.
Absent that evidence, their case fails to meet its burden to prove every element of the charge.
Jurisdiction is one of those elements.
If you, because your lawyer will get disbarred, dont raise its absence from the record the judge assumes you waived the issue.
If you raise the issue, evidence of jurisdiction is not presented, and the judge allows the case to move forward, he commits the felony of allowing a case to progress absent evidence.
Im telling you, if i had been on the ball in the beginning i couldve gotten the whole thing dismissed.
Felony drug charges.
As it was, i let it get to trial day on misdemeanor charges because i didnt know what i was doing.
Rather than lose on appeal from the county jail due to a lack of access to the court of criminal appeals, i signed to the misdemeanor with no fines, no probation, and time served.
Without a lawyer, at all.
You know how much they love money.
That alone was a victory.
You got to do what you do, i can only tell you what worked for me.
If there is a next time, i will know better what to do from the first time i talk to the judge.
