Nichols Hills doctor should stay in mental hospital, wife tells judge

BY NOLAN CLAY Published: July 26, 2011

Defense attorney Mack Martin denied saying that. He said Monday he has never predicted to a client what a judge would do “under circumstances similar to this.”

“To suggest that I did or would have is absolutely just wrong,” Martin said.

In the letter, Mary Wolf also told the judge her husband did not get the medical help he needed the weekend before the attack even though he is a doctor.

“This raises serious questions as to whether or not he should ever be allowed back into society,” she wrote. “Dr. Wolf's poor judgment when he was well, and the violent attack on me and my son, should give you great pause in calculating what, if any, risk you will expose the citizens of Oklahoma to in the future.

“As a doctor, Steve has been able to take advantage of every opportunity in our legal system. I hope that you will give other mothers in Oklahoma the peace of mind to keep Dr. Wolf where he belongs, which is in a mental hospital.”

About remorse, she wrote her husband focused after the attack on his expensive defense and not on trying to tend “to the shattered family and lives he left behind.”

Prosecutors say they expect the judge will leave Stephen Wolf in the mental hospital for a long time. Under current law, only the judge can approve his release.
