“It’s a sharp blow in the gut,” Paroled Oklahoma inmate fights for freedom – Tulsa, Oklahoma

Oklahoma City (KFOR) – Tuesday night after the Olympics, News4’s Ali Meyer revealed taxpayer waste findings.

The case involves Tony Barris, a convicted serious offender.

Barris pleaded guilty to state and federal accusations in 2002. He acknowledged his role in a total of 18 felony charges.

“Tony was a drug dealer, and Tony was found selling drugs and dealing with drugs,” said Barris lawyer Billy Bock.

Barris was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison and 30 years in state prison, and was sentenced to imprisonment at the same time. In short, Barris has been sentenced to federal prison and has been credited with his time in prison for state crimes for the past 20 years.

Last year, the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Commission voted 5-0 to give Tony Barris a parole for the remaining Oklahoma rulings.

“He provided his time,” Bock said. “It’s time to let him go and change one chapter from one to the next, giving him a new beginning.”

Imagine the shock of a federal caseworker informing Barris that he would have to return to an Oklahoma prison to be processed after being released from a federal prison.

For prisoners who have already been released on parole, it will be more state prison time.

“It’s a sharp blow to the intestines,” Burris said on the phone. “I feel like I still can’t get out after doing it all the time.”

Ali Meyer of KFOR has been working on this story for two and a half months.

Does Oklahoma really want to detain Tony Barris?

The answer is 10:30 pm tonight after NBC reported on the Tokyo Olympics.
