My question involves criminal law for the state of: Oklahoma
I am trying to press Grand larceny (value over $500.00), Malicious Mischief (value over $2500.00) and crimial trespassing against a very rich and powerful man and his crew. I have a local lawyer but have meet with much "resistance" from the local government. My concern is when I go through all the hassel & expense of getting this to the D.A. they will not press the charges or lessen the charges (I've been advised). My attorney told me that Selective prosecution does excist and there's not much I can do about it. The D.A. can handle it as she pleases. I ask if I could file suit under the Fourteenth Amendment (EQUAL PROTECTION) if they fail to act upon the evidence (the man has admitted in two emails and a statement to the press) he had my property stolen and taken to another state). My attorney told me the Fourteenth Amendment was for defendants of crimes and not victims of crimes. I ask him as a victim what can I do? He said vote. My question, is this sound advise or should I seek a different attorney?
