  Letter: Your demand appears to have no adequate basis in law 

April 15, 2021

OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today released the following statement after the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals granted a 45-day stay of the state’s case against death row inmate Shaun Bosse, while the attorney general’s office prepares to file a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Today’s ruling means Bosse will stay in state custody on Oklahoma death row, rather than be transferred to federal custody, which was previously mandated by the Court of Criminal Appeals.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today filed a motion requesting the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to rehear the state’s case against Shaun Bosse, a non-Indian who murdered a Chickasaw family, after the court ruled the state did not have jurisdiction to prosecute him due to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in McGirt v. Oklahoma.

In the petition, the attorney general writes a rehearing is warranted because the court overlooked arguments and authority offered by the state and reached a conclusion that conflicts with the state’s post-conviction statutes.

LAKE CHARLES, LA – Attorney General Mike Hunter today joined a lawsuit to blunt the Biden administration’s continued attack on the oil and gas industry.
