Posted on: July 22nd, 2022   Topic: OSA News

OKLAHOMA CITY – Today, Attorney General John O’Connor sent written guidance to Oklahoma law enforcement and district attorneys following the United States Supreme Court decision in Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta, a decision that recognized Oklahoma can prosecute non-Indians who commit crimes against Indians in land that has been held to be Indian country.

“Oklahoma law enforcement is dedicated to the protection of our citizens and has already been implementing some of the advised changes,” said Attorney General O’Connor. “As always, our office stands ready to help any agency if additional assistance is needed to locate victims and pursue charges in cases that were previously not pursued by any law enforcement agency over the past two years.”
