DA Greg Mashburn receiving backlash over Joe Mixon case

DA Greg Mashburn receiving backlash over Joe Mixon case 


Excerpts:

“I have been shocked at the amount of scrutiny compared to some of the high-profile cases I’ve done,” Mashburn said. 

Mashburn last weekend filed one misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury. The fellow student, Amelia Molitor, was not charged. And the outrage has flowed.

“It’s really been on both sides,” Mashburn said. “‘You’re a racist; you’re not going to file on her. You’re picking on her. Let’s break your face in four places.’”

“You’d be lying if you said it doesn’t grind on you a little bit,” Mashburn said. “But time and time again, it comes down to, what would I do in a regular case? What would I do if it was a couple of students? What would I do if it was an 18-year-old and 20-year-old?” and one of them wasn’t a five-star football recruit.

“Certainly you know it’s going to be under a microscope. But I do think I’m still able to make the decision I would have made in every other case.”

I was told by a lawyer that when the DA asked for a $1,000 bond..It was the first time EVER that a teenager..in his first offense...Charged with a misdemeanor....was ever asked for a $1,000 bond....My friend has been a lawyer since 1964...He never seen that before.....

It should have had absolutely no bearing that one of them was a 5 star football recruit.  The law is the law(or it should be) regardless of any status of this kind.  She should have been charged as well.  She initiated the physical assaults.  Open season for women to spit, slap and racially harass any man now?

Whether it was Mixon or just some average Joe (no pun intended) this DA is so full of $h!+ he deserves to be fired.  There is absolutely no reason why that girl was not charged with assault or at the very least the misdemeanor that Mixon was charged with.  I won't call it racism but there is something seriously wrong in this case.

Mashburn seems to be a moron. The more I read what he says the more I shake my head. I can't believe this doof graduated from OU. Maybe he meant OSux..

or how about the warrant out for her arrest?  Her her public intox?  Trespassing since the business asked her to leave?  so many things that she could have been charged with but wasn't because she is a woman.

Re: DA Greg Mashburn receiving backlash over Joe Mixon case 



Just the fact he mentioned Mixon being a five star recruit means he did factor it in. And why did he factor in her being female? And why no drunk in public charge for her? Why no assault charge for her? Why no warrant arrest for her? Why no loitering charge for tresspassing for her?

The problem is he did factor in who Mixon was, otherwise no charges get filed.

Re: DA Greg Mashburn receiving backlash over Joe Mixon case 


Hey all!  One thing I have not heard in all of this is that the D A had to get her to come back to Oklahoma to get her statement.  Without her statement he could not proceed.  There very well may have been some promises made that he would not charge her so she would return for her statement.  With her previous run in with the law her lawyer may have had to work that out with the local D A before he would let her return to Oklahoma.  Now that is just a guess on my part, but that is why I thought it took so long to get charges filed in the case.

My question to the D A is:  If he would have filed charges on both would he have had to put her in jail the day of her statement.  If yes! I think you have your answer on how and why it shook out the way it did.

Can any of you guys read? Seriously, can you? I'm not making any point about Mixon, just what the DA is quoted as saying, and he's saying that he tried to look at the case objectively, as if the two involved were just 'regular' 18 and 20-year olds, and what would he do. He's saying he didn't look at it with any special emphasis or slant because Mixon was Mixon.

You can imply any hidden agenda on the DA's part you want, but you can't say he treated Mixon any differently than he would anybody else in that situation just by what he said in this interview.  He's saying just the opposite.

Again, Zach's post is the only one of importance. All the other posts are pointless. Stick with facts!

Re: DA Greg Mashburn receiving backlash over Joe Mixon case 


To me, the thing I took issue with was the DA saying if it were two men, then no charges. However since one was a female, then it was a moral issue & Joe had to be charged.

If the law is supposed to be gender neutral, then why did it play a part in why one was charged when it was obvious both were at fault?

True and a question I have asked myself numerous times. Seems like a guy that is straddling the culture lines and not following the intent of the law.
