Case History and Victories
Powell et. al. v. Avalon – Successfully settled a lawsuit brought against one of the nation’s largest private prison operators. The lawsuit was brought pursuant to the Civil Rights Act in the Northern District of Oklahoma and was resolved well short of trial to the benefit of Mr. James’ clients. NOTE: This is a civil case and cannot be expunged.
Campbell v. Hollis I.S.D. and Sexton – Mr. James successfully defeated a motion to dismiss and was one of the first cases in Oklahoma to keep the entire school board in as defendants. The case involved a student who was repeatedly raped by their school teacher. This case was resolved short of trial with the school board and resulted in a one million dollar verdict against the teacher.
State v. R.Z.M. – Argued the case before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and successfully upheld previous counsel’s motion to dismiss made at the trial court level. The case resulted in a firestorm of international controversy as it invalidated an arrest for forcible oral sodomy and redefined the definition of the word force in Oklahoma. Youthful Offender dockets are not posted publicly. NOTE: This client is eligible for an expungement.
State v. John Doe – Mr. James’ client was charged with indecent exposure while self-stimulating in a public location. In the face of video evidence, a signed waiver of rights, and a confession by his client, Mr. James negotiated a plea deal whereby his client could avoid the Sex Offender Registry and a felony. NOTE: This client is eligible for an expungement.
United States v. Jeff Henderson and Bill Yelton – Mr. James assisted in the defense of Jeff Henderson and Bill Yelton as a licensed legal intern in one of the largest police corruption trials in the state of Oklahoma. At the end of a three week trial, Bill Yelton walked free and co-defendant Jeff Henderson was acquitted on over forty counts ranging from drug possession, civil rights violations, drug distribution, and conspiracy to commit witness tampering. See U.S. v. Henderson, CR-10-117 BDB. NOTE: This is federal and not eligible for expungement.
England et. al. v. Delaware County – Mr. James assisted Tom Seymour and Scott Graham as a licensed legal intern with a $13,500,000.00 settlement in a case involving the systematic rape of 15 women in Delaware County. This settlement became one of the largest awards paid by a county in the United States. See England v. Delaware County, 09-CIV-407-JHP. NOTE: This is civil, and civil cases are not eligible for expungement.
Mr. James has also took part in the pre-trial preparations for several significant state-level murder trials:
State v. Justin Walker, CF-2004-0017, Pawnee, Cy., Murder of a Pawnee, Cy.
Deputy State v. Gib Buntin, CF-2003-581, Payne, Cy., Murder I trial where client was acquitted on Murder in the First Degree. NOTE: This client is eligible for expungement.
State v. Glen Gore, CF-2001-00126, Pontotoc, Cy., Murder trial covered by John Grisham and the subject of his best-selling book An Innocent Man.
Preparedness is always the best approach in criminal defense. The best result is always dismissal. Dismissals qualify for full expungement of case and arrest records. When dismissal is not obtainable, a Tulsa expungement lawyer will work to negotiate a plea agreement that will later allow for expungement.
