Charges dropped against deaf driver beaten by OHP troopers

1/19/2017 - OKC, OK -- Pearl Pearson, 67, is deaf and non-verbal. In Jan. of 2014 Pearson was pulled over by members of the Oklahoma Highway patrol.  For several minutes the troopers beat Pearson when he failed to comply with orders he could not hear. To add insult to injury, Oklahoma County District Attorney Davis Prater cleared the OHP troopers of any wrongdoing and charged Pearson with misdemeanor crimes.

Pearson hired Oklahoma criminal defense attorney Scott Adams to fight for his rights.

After three years of legal battles, Adams was able to secure the dismissal of all charges against Pearson.
