Video Transcribed: Stage X in an Oklahoma misdemeanor case. This is Oklahoma attorney James Wirth and we’re about to talk about entering a plea. I call it stage X because it doesn’t happen sequentially.
This stage could happen any time during the process. Anytime if an agreement is worked out with the state for a plea deal that can be entered on the next court docket, or you could even sometimes make a special setting where you added on to get that plea deal entered.
Other times, you may go behind the DA’s back. And rather than getting a plea deal, you don’t like their plea deal. So you do a blind plea before the judge and you enter a blind plea.
And the judge sentences you anywhere within the range of punishment and you’re just arguing at the plea for a light sentence, but that’s still entering a plea. We’ll still call it stage X and that can happen at any time through this process.
If you’re dealing with the criminal case, have more questions, you’re going to want to talk to an experienced attorney about your specifics. If you want to talk to somebody at my office, the Wirth Law Office, go to makelaweasy.com.
