State v. Truesdell
Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals
620 P.2d 427 (1980)
Truesdell’s (defendant) ex-husband was shot and killed by her 12-year-old son. Truesdell was charged with being an accessory after the fact to the crime of shooting with the intent to kill. After a preliminary hearing, Truesdell was ordered to be held for trial. Subsequently, a judge held that a juvenile could not commit a felony and thus, there was no crime to which Truesdell could have been an accessory. The trial court dismissed the complaint and the State appealed.
