Description: Tulsa, Oklahoma criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant charged with assault of an intimate/dating partner by strangling and attempting to strangle in Indian Country.

Matthew Wayne Martin, age 41, admitted in Court that he held down the victim by her neck and strangled her during an argument on April 8, 2020. Injuries on the victim’s arms, chest, and neck were seen by officers with the Tulsa Police Department the next day, when her father reported the abuse.
