Officials said they found deleted images on Crain’s phone showing young girls’ genitals, buttocks and other private areas. Allegations have surfaced that Crain also encouraged the students to talk with a man known as “Uncle G” via Skype. She is currently in jail on a $1 million bond.

Failing To Stop For Bus Brings About Harsher Punishment

A new law enacted Tuesday makes the punishments for failing to stop for a school bus even harsher.

According to the new law, motorists failing to stop for a school bus with flashing red lights who is loading or loading children could lose their license for up to a year as well as receive four points on their license. Currently, such violators would only face a fine of $249 and four points on their driving record.

A driver would lose their license for one year with no modifications as a result of House Bill 1507, also named “Aaron’s Law.”

The law also increases the fines for negligent homicide from $100 to $1,000 and requires anyone who is convicted of negligent homicide to attend a driver improvement course. It also doubles the fines for anyone also convicted of any traffic offense in the prior three years.

If you or your loved is facing any driving-related charges, you need an effective, aggressive criminal defense attorney. Contact Chavers & Guhl, LLP today for a free, initial consultation.

Tougher DUI Laws To Take Effect Tuesday

Stiffer laws to help curb drunk driving will go into effect Tuesday in Oklahoma and will require even some first-time drunk driving offenders to have an interlocking ignition device installed on their vehicle.

Currently, only second-time offenders are required to have the device installed. The device measures a driver’s blood alcohol content, and the driver must first blow into it before being able to start the vehicle.

In addition, affected drivers must have “Interlock Required” indicted on their license for as long as the device is required for them to drive. Those drivers will not be allowed to drive without the device and are responsible for the installation costs.

The device will be required for the first 18 months after a first offense of drunk driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.15 or higher. For a second or subsequent offense of drunk driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, the interlock will be required for four years.

The new law also removes the ability for judges to allow DUI offenders to enter a plea bargain and plead guilty to a lesser offense.
