On December 16, 2014, the Governor of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes signed, A Bill to Adopt an Act Establishing the Legal Aid Program of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes. The Legal Aid Program (LAP) provides legal representation to tribal members in tribal court and courts in Beckham, Blaine, Canadian, Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Grady, Kingfisher, Oklahoma, Roger Mills, and Washita County. The types of cases handled by the program are as follows: 1) Defense of misdemeanor criminal charges; 2) Defense of felony criminal charges if the statutory range of punishment includes a term of imprisonment of 10 years or less; and 3) Defending parents or children in deprived juvenile cases when appointed by the court. Ms. Kimberly Anthony serves as the Attorney, please feel free to contact her at (405) 422-7663 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of the Legal Aid Program is to provide basic legal advice and representation to Cheyenne and Arapaho tribal members.
