OKC Council could ease s*x shop restrictions

Our firm is proud to defend the First Amendment.

- Facing one lawsuit and threatened with another, the Oklahoma City Council will consider whether to amend restrictions on s*x shops, known in legal parlance as "adult novelty" stores. If the changes go through, shops that violate the current ordinance could remain in business, at their current loca...

Our law firm opened 39 years ago tomorrow. Much has changed since then. When I hung my shingle, I took whatever cases I could. I frequently represented oil and gas interests and other corporations. I am grateful that for a very long time, I have been able to devote my efforts to representing only individuals in disputes with companies, and helping humans in conflict with the government. Lanita joined 38 years ago, and Shelly has been helping me for 31 years. I still find the work challenging and I still enjoy it. I plan on continuing representing my fellow citizens in the courts for as long as I can.

04/25/2016

Thirty-eight years ago today, I opened the law office where I still work. Lanita joined about a year later. My assistant has been with me thirty some years. The law has changed. Like most lawyers I own no law books, and find statutes and cases on the internet. But much is the same. We still limit our practice to defending citizens in disputes with the government, and in suing companies on behalf of individuals. It's been a pretty good ride, and I hope it goes on for a long time.

Richard Glossip's final appeal denied; see his long road to Oklahoma's death row

It saddens me to say that the Supreme Court has denied our final appeal. The ex*****on is scheduled to proceed. I would once again like to express my gratitude for everyone who worked to save this innocent man's life.

Richard Glossip didn't personally kill Barry Van Treese in 1997. He wasn't even in the room when his former boss was murdered inside an Oklahoma City motel. But unless a desperate appeal prompts the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene, he will be put to death in Oklahoma on Wednesday. The case of Glossi…

Fallin Receives Letter On Behalf Of Pope Francis Concerning Glossip Ex*****on

We are thankful to see Richard receive so much support, including from Pope Francis. The Supreme Court has not yet ruled on whether or not to stay the ex*****on, but we're remaining hopeful.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Pope Francis' U.S. Representative, wrote the letter on behalf of the Pope asking Gov. Fallin "to commute" the death sentence of Glossip.

Glossip's attorneys plan to appeal U.S. Supreme Court for stay of ex*****on

Our own Lanita Henricksen was on KFOR last night talking about our appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. This is not the end and we are not going to give up.

OKLAHOMA CITY - While the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals rejected a death row inmate's plea for a stay, his attorneys say they will not stop fighting. Richard Glossip is set to die on Wednesda...

Glossip attorneys: David Prater intimidating innocence witnesses

This article fairly captures the conduct of the government in bullying witnesses who came forward with evidence trying to clear Richard Glossip. Two have now been arrested on minor misdemeanors to coerce meetings with government lawyers. This is abusive.

OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Okla. - With only seven days left until Richard Glossip's rescheduled ex*****on, his attorneys are scrambling daily to find new information to prove his innocence. Late Wednesday a...

Court halts ex*****on of Richard Glossip

I'm glad that the Appeals Court granted our request for a temporary stay. We will continue to work on his behalf until justice is done.

A stay of ex*****on has been granted for Richard Glossip.

09/16/2015

I spoke to my friend and client Richard Glossip yesterday. I had to tell him that Gov. Fallin had rejected his request for a 60 day stay. I told him that our team had filed our summary of newly discovered evidence with the Court of Criminal Appeals and requested a stay. Richard, a healthy, vibrant man was mostly upbeat and grateful. It is surreal to speak with a vigorous man facing avoidable death in a few hours. He was grateful to have seen his daughters, and to have seen siblings from whom he has been separated for many years. He was taking all of this better than I was and he urged his lawyers "not to feel so bad about it."
Fallin and prosecutors have criticized our failure to "prove his innocence." Of course, in America, that is never the standard, because it is often impossible to achieve.
We have demonstrated enormous doubt. So barring judicial intervention, this afternoon a 3, we will kill a man with no past criminal history, based solely on the evidence of a drug addict, who admits to have killed the decedent alone. Oklahoma is mocking justice.

Illegal slot machine supplier gets probation after forfeiting $2 million to federal government

Our firm completed a long slog in federal court, and I am thrilled my long time client was awarded probation. I am attaching the Daily Oklahoman article for my Facebook friends who have the good sense not to subscribe to it.

For years, Adlai Stevenson Brinkley put illegal slot machines in bars, lodges and veterans’ posts across Oklahoma and Kansas. A federal judge showed him leniency Monday, putting him on probation for five years.

Canadian County juvenile justice center to be funded with sales tax revenue, for now

A heated debate over a sales tax that provides nearly $6 million a year for the juvenile justice center in El Reno reached an Oklahoma County courtroom Thursday. The judge granted a request by the county sheriff and others, who are suing the board of commissioners.

On this day in 1978, our firm opened its doors, and we continue a practice of suing companies and defending our fellow citizens accused of crimes. I hope it continues for a long time to come. Most of the time it genuinely is fun.

I want to make a plug for the annual dinner of the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. This is a group of noble people who advocate humanity for the weakest and most despised among us. It is thankless work. Please join their annual gathering on April 12 at 6 p.m at the Nigh Center at U.C.O. You can get tickets online at OKCADP.org or call 405-948-1645. I am buying a table. Anyone who otherwise can't go, should write me and come as my guest. Mark Henricksen

Suit Over Pa. Stop for Arabic Flashcards Tossed

An American citizen was detained and handcuffed for possessing Arabic flashcards. The disingenuous court said the cops were acting within the outer limits of the constitution. We are losing the war on terror by surrendering our rights.

A former college student who was detained for several hours at an airport after he was found carrying Arabic language flashcards had his bid to sue federal agents rejected by a federal appeals court.

04/28/2013

Thirty-five years ago today we opened our law firm. Back then it was in El Reno. Lanita joined the next year.
I can honestly say it is still as interesting as it was back then, and I look forward to at least twenty more years of helping people fight off the government and of suing big business.

Death penalty speech

On Saturday I attended the annual meeting of the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. They generously awarded me the Opio Toure Courageous Advocate award. I am attaching my remarks to the group to promote consideration of this topic.

04/06/2013

I want to make a plug for the annual banquet of the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. It will be at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Oklahoma City April 20 at 5:30. This organization works with a shoestring budget and produces an enormous impact of its objection to the occurrence of state sponsored killing. Please consider attending to support this organization.

My colleague Gary Peterson and I head to Deleware tomorrow to interview the military pathologist in our military death penalty case scheduled for trial February 4 in Lawton. I will be back in the office Tuesday. If you share my objection to the death penalty in all instances, please send your positive thoughts. We need all the help we can get.

We should soon learn if this radical Supreme Court will declare health care unconstitutional. Some thoughts: The first time a court declared a law unconstitutional was 1803. It refrained from doing this again for fifty-four years. It was during the New Deal and now under the Roberts court that laws protecting the poor were routinely banned as unconstitutional. We really need Obama to fill the next few vacancies.

The right wing activists on the Supreme Court just defied any sense of restraint on government power. All 5 Republican justices voted to permit strip searches on citizens arrested on minor non-violent offenses (speeding, parking tickets, no bell on a bike). The 4th Amendment has evaporated under the watch of these radicals.

03/25/2012

The health care case begins Monday at SCOTUS. The issue should not be whether Congress can mandate health care for all citizens. When we consider a country guaranteeing the "pursuit of happiness", a mother should not worry if her child can ride a bicycle without injury. The question which this court will not consider if whether citizenship in America includes basic health care. This is a great shame.

03/23/2012

Next week our radical Supreme Court considers the health care act--whether it is legal to require a citizen to purchase health coverage. In 1942 in Wickard v. Filburn, the court held that the commerce clause included regulation of wheat on one's own farm. If this court rules against health care, it means nothing other than the right wing has coopted the Supreme Court.

An update on my class action to recover overcharges on the liquor drinking public. Friday the trial court overruled hundreds of defendants' motions to dismiss. It may be years till the end, but this was a major first step to disgorging this money from these corporations and returning it to the liquor consuming public.

I am working on a federal death penalty case arising out of an incident at Ft. Sill. I head to D.C. this weekend for a Mon .meeting at Justice regarding authorizing OKC prosecutors to proceed with the capital punishment. I hope those who join me in opposition to state sponsored killing will send out positive thoughts regarding the outcome. Thanks.

12/28/2011

Gary Welch is scheduled for ex*****on on January 5 at 6. For those who agree with this page in opposition to state sponsored killing, please join us at the Gov. mansion at 5:15 to protest this ex*****on. As long as there is an underclass, we must be in it. As long as there is a soul in prison, none of us will be free. Please attend the peaceful vigil. Peace!

In a frightning vote, over 60 senators supported executive authority to hold terrorist suspects without trial indefinitely. This did not provide an exemption for US citizens arrested on US soil. Obama has promised a veto. Why do the politicians fear an airing of the evidence in an American court? If we are this frightened of our historic values, the terrorists really have won. Please write Congress to object.

The Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty is hosting a symposium this Sunday at the Crown Heights Christian Church, 4020 N. Western, OKC. All points of view will be considered. I have been asked to present the defense lawyer's perspective. The meeting is from 3-5 and is free and open to the public. Come engage in a discussion on this legal and moral issue.

The U.S. Supreme Court considers a drug dealer's conviction Tuesday. The question is stark. May the police, without a warrant, attach a GPS device to a citizen's car? The gov't claims that driving is public and the citizen cannot expect privacy. The defense claims that the 4th amendment is trashed by permitting the police, without a warrant, to monitor you 24 hours a day. What do you think?

08/11/2011

Fox 25 at 9 is covering an interesting class action we are handling against 801 liquor vendors are are illegally adding a 13.5% tax to the advertised cost of mixed drinks, wine and strong beer. If you have time, watch the program. We hope to collect back lots of money for Oklahoma drinkers who have been cheated.

Everyone I saw today seemed appalled that a local pharmacist was given a life sentence for killing a robber. His conviction likely stemmed from the voluntary statement he made to cops upon his arrest. If the pharmacist had exercised his 5th amendment rights, he would likely be at home tonight. Our advice remains: to the police, Not a word. Not a syllable. Silence is a right. Use it.

05/06/2011

If you are up Sunday at 10, I am going to be a guest on KREF 1400 AM, discussing the death penalty, criminal justice and civil rights. I will be a guest of Bruce Prescott. I understand you can call the show, so I hope my Facebook friends will ask easy questions.

Two fabulous attorneys from Henricksen Law Office attended the OCCDLA Christmas Party!
Statement from Charles Warner's attorney Lanita Henricksen of TheHenricksenLawOffice: "The case filed in the United States Supreme Court was Charles F. Warner, et al vs. Kevin Gross, et al. , and the grant of certiorari on January 23 by the United States Supreme Court was truly bittersweet. I am truly grateful that our client, Richard Glossip, and the other plaintiffs will benefit by the grant of certiorari. I am stunned, however, that my client, Charles Warner, was allowed to be executed days ago although the case in which he was named as first plaintiff will now be heard by the Supreme Court. This is especially devastating cosidering the fact that the mother of the victim in Mr. Warner's case had requested that he not be executed. But, this is just another example of the problems surrounding the death penalty. It is time to stop ex*****ons and even supporters of the death penalty would benefit by that in terms of the exorbitant amount of savings of taxpayers' money spent on the death penalty."

This sucks......(info from the OK Attorney General's office)
Stemple Ex*****on Date Set for March
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Court of Criminal Appeals today set March 15, 2012, as the ex*****on date for Tulsa County death row inmate Timothy Shaun Stemple, 46.
Stemple was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of his wife, Trisha J. Stemple, 30, on Oct. 24, 1996, along a highway. Evidence showed the victim had been hit multiple times with a baseball bat and repeatedly run over with Stemple’s pickup. The victim died from blunt force trauma to the head and also had fractures to her arm, ribs, pelvis, vertebrae and skull.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt requested the ex*****on date on Jan. 9, after the United States Supreme Court denied the inmate’s final appeal.
From Austin to OKC, Happy and Prosperous New Year!
HAPPY B DAY H AND H LAW OFFICE!
Happy birthday to Henricksen and Henricksen! 33 years of being the best in the business.
