Video Transcribed: What is a 33 and a third percent crime in Oklahoma? I’m Tulsa Attorney James Wirth, and we’re talking about crimes and their various percentages and what they mean.
And this video is talking about the 33 and third percent of crimes. And what that deals with is how much of your sentence has to be served before a defendant is eligible for parole. And by statute, we have a list of enumerated offenses.
There are 22 of them that are 85% crimes. And for those, you have to serve at least 85% of your sentence before you’re eligible for parole. If it is not on the 85% list, then it’s going to be a 33 and a third percent crime if it was committed prior to November 1st of 2018.
So any of those normal, typical offenses prior to November 1st, of 2018, are 33 and third percent crimes. That means you have to serve at least a third of your sentence before you are eligible for parole.
If it is after that date, that is where some criminal justice reform went into effect. And it’s only a 25% crime unless of course, it’s on the list of 85% crimes. In which case you have to serve at least 85% of your sentence.
