AG Opinion 2017-3

To the extent the three-day rule in 57 O.S.Supp.2016, § 37(E) requires a county to bear the cost of housing an inmate after a judgment and sentence has been ordered by the court, the statute violates Article XXI, Section 1 of the Oklahoma Constitution by requiring the county to support a state penal institution.
