Brown v. Parker, 2014 WL 5840359 (11/12/14) (Okl.) (Published) - Mr. Brown was not entitled to ยง 1983 relief for being incarcerated beyond the term of his sentence. He was sentenced to two two-year concurrent sentences by two different judges. The judge in the second case issued a subsequent order saying Mr. Brown must be released when his first sentence was complete. But that order did not comply with Oklahoma law which forbids "coterminous" sentences. Even though the sentences were concurrent, they finished at different times because they began at different times.
