A: For Burglary II, the statute of limitations in Oklahoma requires the prosecutor to file charges within three (3) years. (See generally Oklahoma Statutes, Title 22, Section 152: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=70298).
The time counting towards the three (3) year period only accrues if the accused is in the state; if the accused leaves the state or is not usually within the state, accrual of time towards the three (3) year period stops. (See Oklahoma Statutes, Title 22, Section 153: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=70299)
A: In Oklahoma, the answer depends on what happened with the prior charge as well as what the current allegations are in your new case.
If the previous case resulted in a conviction (time to serve or a suspended sentence), then the current allegation can be charged as a felony.
If a deferred sentence was completed on the previous case (resulting in no conviction) then an argument can be made that the new offense should be properly filed as a misdemeanor. If this is your situation, you should hire an experienced attorney to handle your case to make sure the case is handled as a misdemeanor. (Note: the law now treats deferred sentences on domestic violence offenses as convictions to enhance subsequent offenses to felonies; however, the law did not allow for that nine (9) years ago. An experienced attorney can litigate this issue for you).
If the new case involves strangulation, a sharp or dangerous weapon, or great bodily injury, it can be filed as a felony.
I encourage you to consult with an experienced attorney about your case.
A: Your generic question is too broad to answer without going on for several pages. When it comes to sentence enhancements (after formers), there are different rules that apply depending on what prior convictions or deferred adjudications exist for a charged individual and with what an individual is currently charged. Domestic Abuse, Protective Order Violations, DUIs, Drug Charges, Sex Offenses, Child Abuse, and General Felonies are all treated differently.
Your example of a manslaughter charge filed within 8 years after conviction of the felony of indecent exposure would be properly filed under the general sentence enhancement statute found in title 21 sections 51.1 and 51.2.
