Right. The unfair way justice is doled out in Oklahoma is just too far beyond insane. The Native American got 500 years for molesting a child, while in at least one case a white man didn't even have to spend as long as two years in prison for molesting a 6 year old male autistic child. Had the Native American gotten two years, maybe this case wouldn't have ended up in high court.

What if the Native American already had a prior conviction and served prison time for the same thing?

Hint: He did.

Anybody have a good place to read what exactly this will mean jurisdiction-wise?

My guess is jurisdiction will lie with the Federal Court now. I'm not sure if Tribal Courts have criminal jurisdiction.

What does this mean in regards to property and home owners in Tulsa County? Title insurance has never been more important. Crazy carzy days.

Always be carful comparing sentences. Facts, circumstances and/or jurisdictions are almost never the same.

When do I get my illegally taken State income taxes paid back to me?
That's an interesting question. I guess the state and the tribe already have an agreement worked out. Supposed to go to DC with it shortly. The 10th gave essentially the same ruling in 17 on another case SCOTUS punted it back then.
