Statement From Attorney General Pruitt Regarding Allegations


“Our office has been made aware of the allegations brought forward by Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater. Indeed, these allegations are of great concern because 85 percent crimes are some of the most heinous crimes committed against Oklahomans. The Legislature established a clear requirement so that victims and their families can be assured that an offender will serve no less than 85 percent of their sentence.”

“Any practice, policy or action taken by any board or commission to mitigate or change the time served is wrong—and inconsistent with statute.”

“I will do everything in my power as Attorney General to ensure that victims have confidence in our legal system and that justice is carried out to the fullest extent.”
