Some cases that don’t look like victories are in fact acceptable results.

Mr. Pye was charged with worker’s compensation fraud after 2 prior felony convictions. The State alleged he misrepresented the injuries he suffered on the job, took monetary benefits from the State but was seen assisting a race car collision victim from a car at an Oklahoma motor speedway.

State law prohibits suspended sentences when a defendant already has at least 2 prior felony convictions. Mr. Pye was looking at going to the penitentiary for up to 5 years on the fraud case.

Haslam negotiated a plea bargain involving restitution and no time in the penitentiary.
