Oklahoma v. TDB, Cleveland County, CF-93-352/423/427/430/431/436.
Represented Defendant in another landmark trial, as it was the first Oklahoma trial of alleged street gang members under the R.I.C.O. (racketeering) statutes. Besides racketeering, however, TDB was also tried simultaneously for eleven other crimes, including possession of cocaine, robbery by force, grand larceny and embezzlement. After 8 days of trial and the prosecutor's admonitions for a lifetime of prison, the jury acquitted TDB of racketeering and everything else but one count each of robbery, larceny and embezzlement. TDB spent only 3 years and a month in prison.
