Oklahoma v. ALG, Cleveland County, CF-96-1580
Defendant charged with shooting with intent to kill and concealing stolen property. ALG, a 44 yr old alcoholic, was being continually harassed and threatened by a 17 yr old thug. ALG, having all he could take, shot the 17 year old with a gun that he had found earlier in a field. The concealing stolen property charge was dismissed by the judge. The jury found ALG guilty of shooting with intent to kill but refused to assess any further punishment against him as he had already spent eight months in the county jail awaiting trial. The judge granted the jury's wish and released ALG on the spot and in front of the jury with no probation or additional jail time.
