Oklahoma law establishes the relationship between the mother and the child through birth or through adoption, but the relationship between the father and the child can be established in several ways. The first way is through a presumption.
The law presumes the father to be the father of the child if the child is born during the marriage. The law also presumes the child and father relationship if the child is born prior to the marriage and the father has taken affirmative steps to hold himself out to be the father of the child during the first two years of the child’s life.
Tulsa Attorney Isaiah Brydie with Urban Legal speaks on the subject of criminal law and criminal procedure – warrants. So we’re going to be talking about when the police need a warrant, what all can they do under that warrant and stuff like that. The first question is, when do warrants usually come up? Well, they usually come up when the police go to a home.
Oklahoma Attorney Isaiah Brydie with Urban Legal speaks on Plain View, Expedient Circumstances, Hot Pursuit. What does this mean? For starters. Plain View Doctrine says that anything that a police officer sees that is in plain view of that police officer, that police officer can then seize as evidence of a crime and then subsequently arrest you and then do a continual search after that. A good example of this would be if you get pulled over in your car and while the cop is going to give you your traffic ticket, he sees a kilo of cocaine in the passenger seat. I don’t know why the kid, just go with me, just go with me. The cop sees the kilo of cocaine, he can seize that kilo. And it’s not a search, it is a seizure. It’s not a search. It’s lawful under the plain view doctrine because that police officers saw it in plain view.
Oklahoma Attorney Isaiah Brydie with Urban Legal discusses all things Miranda: Miranda warnings, your Miranda rights and custodial interrogations. But what does all that information actually mean? Well, your Miranda rights are actually your Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights, basically boiled and distilled down to a couple sentences explaining those rights that you have under the US Constitution.
Tulsa Attorney Isaiah Brydie with Urban Legal discusses the stop and identify doctorate. Stop and Identify is a police procedure where they approach an individual and they ask them to identify themselves by giving some form of identification such as a license or some kind of ID card. Or you can identify yourself by giving your name or a date of birth and things like that.
Oklahoma Attorney Isaiah Brydie again with Urban Legal talks about stop and frisks. The case that brought forth this doctrine of this stop and frisk is Terry V Ohio. It happened in downtown Cleveland. There was a police officer, he was walking his beat, and on a corner he saw a young African-American male. He suspected he committed a crime. He approached that individual, and then he asked him what he was doing out there. He felt as though he had reasonable suspicion of a crime. He did what’s called an outer pat down of the individual. On the outer pat down of the individual, he found a gun in the person’s pocket, and then proceeded to arrest them. That was deemed by the US Supreme court to be a valid action
