Oklahoma: State-wide Debtor's Prison


Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at Georgetown University Law Center, Jill Webb Attorney at Law PLLC, Smolen Smolen Roytman PLLC 

Every year tens of millions of dollars in wealth is transferred from the poorest people in Oklahoma to a private debt-collection company, to the Oklahoma Sheriffs' Association, and to Oklahoma judges through an unconstitutional racketeering enterprise. Tens of thousands of human beings are threatened, arrested, confined in jail, assessed further fees and surcharges based on their unlawful arrest, and then threatened again. We have joined Georgetown Law, Smolen Smolen Roytman Pllc, and Jill Webb Attorney at Law PLLC to sue to stop this predatory and abusive practice.
