TULSA, Oklahoma -

This spring the United States Supreme Court will take up a question to decide whether the state of Oklahoma has the authority to prosecute Americans of non-native descent who commit crimes against Native American victims on tribal land. It's part of an ongoing legal battle from the state of Oklahoma to get the high court to overturn its original ruling on tribal jurisdiction. Oklahoma Attorney General John O'Connor joined News On 6 at 4 to talk about the recent developments.
