Records' release

When The Oklahoman requested juvenile records for Salvador Martinez and Steve Lopez, Oklahoma County juvenile judges studied the law and agreed the records should be released.

Oklahoma juvenile records are normally confidential, but Section 7307-1.2 of the Oklahoma Juvenile Code allows the following seven exceptions:

Upon certification as an adult.

Upon being charged as an adult.

When charged with a traffic violation.

When a juvenile 14 or older has been adjudicated delinquent previously.

When adjudicated delinquent for a felony crime against a person or a felony offense involving a dangerous weapon.

Arrest records in the case of crimes described above.

Records of violations of the Prevention of Youth Access to Tobacco Act.

In an order issued Wednesday, Judge Lisa K. Hammond cited the second and fourth exceptions as applying in the cases of Martinez and Lopez.
