Video Transcribed: What is a 25% crime in Oklahoma? I’m Tulsa attorney, James Wirth and that’s the topic for the day. Talking about various crimes and their percentages and what they mean. And we talked about 85% of crimes.

Criminal justice reform passed, the statutes were amended, and it provides for any crime committed on or after November 1st, 2018, rather than having to serve a minimum of one-third of your sentence you only have to serve a minimum of one-quarter of your sentence, 25%, one-fourth of your sentence before you are eligible for parole.

There is a process to determined just because you’re eligible doesn’t mean you get it and it’s an administrative process. But for those offenses that are not on the 85% list committed after November 1st, 2018, it is a 25% minimum before you get that opportunity to seek parole rather than the 33 1/3.
