This page is designed to provide links to
recent unpublished opinions from the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals. To the
top are links to recent unpublished opinions indexed both by subject and
alphabetically by appellant’s last name. These opinions were chosen for their
potential value to defense lawyers – reversible errors, promulgation of new
procedure, emerging issues, etc. They are only selected cases of interest,
primarily on direct appeal, and do not reflect all of the Court’s unpublished
The Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals
now permit citation to unpublished opinions in certain circumstances. Rule
In all instances, an unpublished
opinion is not binding on this Court. However, parties may cite and bring to
the Court's attention the unpublished opinions of this Court provided
counsel states that no published case would serve as well the purpose for
which counsel cites it, and provided further that counsel shall provide
opposing counsel and the Court with a copy of the unpublished opinion.
Unpublished opinions may also be helpful
as persuasive authority in trial courts throughout the State.
The format of these opinions allows the
user to print them as graphics files, so that each opinion will appear exactly
as the "original" that was issued by the Court.
Check back each month for updated case lists. As a start,
we are including cases decided after July 1999, but we hope to review and
include earlier unpublished cases as time allows.
