INTERFERING WITH AN EMERGENCY
MEDICAL CARE PROVIDER - ELEMENTS
No person may be convicted of interfering with an emergency medical technician/(care provider) unless the State has proved beyond a reasonable doubt each element of the crime. These elements are:
Second, delaying/obstructing/(in any way interfering with);
Third, an emergency medical technician/(care provider);
Fourth, [in (the performance of)/(the attempt to perform) emergency medical care and treatment]/[in (going to)/(returning from) the scene of a medical emergency].
Statutory Authority: 21 O.S. 2001, § 650.3.
This instruction previously included a element that the defendant must have known the victim was an emergency medical technician or emergency medical care provider. The committee has concluded, however, that this element is not required by 21 O.S. 2001, § 650.3, since there is no requirement in the statute that the interference with the emergency medical technician or emergency medical care provider was committed knowingly.
