Re: “Reform justice

We had court today & it's all over a possession charge which they have listed as Trafficking because that's how they do things. They try to prosecute you as much as possible by using terms that don't really apply & it depends on if they want to send you to prison or not. But technically there are so many ways it's easy to get around inside how our laws are laid out.

Today we went for a bond reduction hearing & instead of looking at the case these days, the District Attorney's office brought up the charges he had on Richard when he was 18 & 20 years old. That's 24 years ago & why should it matter in a case today? He was a kid then & those type charges have not applied since then either & so why does it have a bearing on his life today?


He had finished his time for that & we are talking about someone's life which has changed & since they been released they have had no charges referring to actual crime being done & all he has received is this possession charge.

During that hearing his Attorney Micah Sielert covered & covered well how Richard was working these days & had a well established job since release. That Richard has lived here all his life & that he has a support system these days too. That obviously his new wife stands by him & a few others have too. I know of 2 people besides myself who have sent in letters telling how Richard has made an impact on them these days, & also how there had been no substantial reason for his search in the first place & so that charge had been dropped.

The attorney mentioned it was barely the amount to consider as trafficking & that sentence has been changed & lowered. But even with that fact this case does not show to be an actual trafficking case.

Then came in District Attorney John Brewer & for his plea he mentioned Richard's charges but never stated the fact that those charges had been 22 to 24 years ago when Richard was 18 - 20 years old & not charges that have even been within the 10 year period that supposed to matter after a case has been closed.

Richard had charges from 1995, when he was 18 years old & almost 25 years ago). And then in 2002, making that 18 years ago, & that's the just of his charges that hold him being a violent offender with an outrageous bond amount that they won't lower, & this why now they feel like for what was obviously (and they know it & were lowing it to that), but his possession now has him looking at 15 years prison time when for everybody else it is a misdemeaner charge.


Other than those charges Richard was only in trouble once & that was in 2013 for a possession & grabbing a toolbox out of the back of a truck. They have it listed as Burglary 2 & for that one incident in 2013 he was incarcerated 5 years, & now it's another possession & they want to throw 15 years in it because of what he did when he was a young 25 years ago & not to mention that Richard grew up on SE 23rd & Central which was the very worst side of town. I don't really have a record but I grew up in Moore. He grew up on a side of town that is extremely violent & he has changed his life enough that in the past 18 years time he has only caught that one in 2013 which is nothing much & for what.. .? (it's always a life sentence)

Why do they make sayings like these if are system don't believe in them?

"" We all have a past, the difference between those people who achieve thier dreams & the difference between those who don't is they don't let the past define them."

"Your mistakes don't define your character, it's what you do after you have made the mistake that makes all the difference."

I have learnt that it's always a life sentence & that's what causes things to never change!

I feel the 10 years after a sentence is already crazy because they give someone a 5 year deferred & then make it to where even 10 years after that it still matters. Don't they mean a 15 deferred because a deferred is basically promising that you won't get in any trouble for those 5 years or else you will do time. But even 10 years after then you get in trouble your gonna do that time still because that gives you priors & see so whatever they have you on doubles. So you best hope it is not a rough charge because it don't matter how minor your prior charge was because enhancements don't work like you would think here. Enhancements are not for repeating the same type charge like I thought.. . Enhancements come solely because of previous charge, or charges..

Well, come to find out now it's really a life sentence once you have had a charge because the ones they brought up at Richard's court date which made him sound like a violent offender were the ones that happened 22-24 years ago. Not anything was mentioned by the Prosecutor in that case today that was within those 10 years back even. Otherwise he would not have those type charges to make his case sound bad at all.

It seems to work because this is actually giving them reason to charge him with 15 years in prison over a possession charge,! So why not just call everything a life sentence & just leave it at that !

You would think it would be based on your recent life & that's why they say once someone goes to prison then it leads them back again & again. Maybe it's not them & maybe it's because we never accept their change & therefore never allow it to stay that way!

That's what I am here for & its to observe things from the other position of things & help understand where we lack here. From this position is where all the answers come from.

Yours truly, STACY PRIVETT

Re: “Reform justice

He had been released about a year from prison & spent his entire adult life there & drugs became a habit in the system & now that he is out & doing good, THEY KEEP OFFERING HIM 15 YEARS ON WHAT IS A POSSESSION CHARGE. HE HAS A REAL HARD TIME AS IT IS ADJUSTING TO THINGS OUT HERE & WHAT ARE THEY SAYING IS THAT HE DONT DESERVE HELP BECOMING PART OF SOCIETY. THE ADDICTION CAME FROM INCARCERATION & FOR EVERYONE ELSE WHO BECAME ADDICTED OUT HERE THEY ARE FINDING ALTERNATIVES, But for Richard Urrutia there can't be nothing but another 15 years on a possession which is technically a misdemeaner now. SO WHAT DOES INCARCERATION DO FOR SOMETHING DEVELOPED THROUGH INCARCERATION ??????

("We believe that issues of addiction and mental illness are better addressed through treatment than through punishment," said Kris Steele, who leads Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform, which led the election campaign. "When we incarcerate a low-level offender and attract a felony charge to that individual, it tends to make a bad situation worse."
With the new law, Steele estimates Oklahoma will save $45 million over the next ten years, as more offenders receive treatment instead.)

AND HE HAS ALSO DEVELOPED SCHITOPRENIA FROM YEARS & YEARS OF BEING SECLUDED IN A SMALL SPACE BY HIMSELF & IF I CAN HELP CHANGE HIS LIFE SO FAR THEN I DONT KNOW WHATS WRONG WITH AN ENTIRE JUSTICE SYSTEM NOT BEING ABLE TOO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Richard Urrutia Jr. himself is 42 now & his old friends gave him his job & since it pays $20 bucks an hour then Richard took it. He had started to work a bunch those last 2 weeks because as soon as money started rolling in then he was so proud of himself & talked about what all he can do. He works pretty hard you know & it had been recently he was taking on 2 jobs for a minute.

Re: “Reform justice

OKLAHOMA COUNTY vs RICHARD URRUTIA Jr. case# CF2018-4243

This is the case I am working on now because he was illegally approached to begin with when he was searched, but all he has is a habit & it showed. Plus, he has always been in prison & just got out & thats where that habit formed. Now they wanna give him 15 years back in prison for that when they should help him instead. He was incarcerated 22 out of 42 years of his life & they wish to put him back in for 15 years because he was caught with a bag of dope in his pocket.

Richard should of never been searched & now the D.A comes at him with 15 years on that. The officer stated at arrest that he going to charge him with whatever he can & the biggest he can.

Supposedly officer weighed it out at 23 grams with the container, they charged him with Trafficking even though there was not one single thing as far as scales, or baggies, or anything besides being a personal bag. Richard does not have a history of anything as that & now they are trying to give him 15 years on what was really just a possession charge & nothing more. He had a real good paying job but now he sits in jail for 8 months already because I cant post bond.

For someone who has just been released from prison after spending his entire adult life in prison, & has a habit formed while they were in prison then you would think they would decide to help him adjust to the outside better. And not try to Double Jeopardy someone by then turning around & trying to lock then up another 15 years on a possession charge. And Richard is schitzophrenic now too because isolation like that from other human contact has a tendency to form that. And it had. But Richard had been doing great & adjusting well because I HAVE BEEN THERE FOR HIM & HELPED HIM ADJUST. IF I CAN DO IT THEN WHY CANT THE SYSTEM HELP WHEN THEIR NEW LAWS SAY THEY WILL HELP THOSE WITH ADDICTIONS & NOT JUST IMPRISON THEM. Richard had even made it past his probational period after release.
