    STATEMENT: Worthen Comments on Process Server Incident in Tulsa

    OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Rande Worthen (R-Lawton) released the following statement in light of last week”s incident where a private process server was shot while sewing court papers in Tulsa:

    “This past session, I looked to strengthen laws to help protect our state’s private process servers. As officers of the court, they play an important role in ensuring our judicial system runs as smoothly as possible.
    Unfortunately, they sometimes find themselves in dangerous situations while fulfilling their duties. Wednesdays incident in Tulsa, where a private process server was shot while serving papers, highlights the need to provide additional measures to keep them safe.
    I plan to readdress this policy next session, where we’ll have an opportunity to continue working to hopefully provide protection for private process servers. I hope that, in light of this regrettable incident, my fellow lawmakers will realize the importance of safeguarding our state’s private process servers and we can get this legislation passed into law this year.”

    Worthen filed House Bill 1162 during the 2019 legislative session, which would classify harming a licensed process server as a Misdemeanor, with punishments of up to a year in jail, a fine of up to $1,0G0, or both.
