The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ordered that the footage of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon punching Amelia Molitor be made public. This also means that copies must be made of the video.

Mixon entered an Alford plea in 2014 and served 100 hours of community service. He was also suspended from the team for one year.
City of Norman says court won't release Mixon video until they have had a chance to file for petition for rehearing which gives them 20 days— Phil Cross (@philsnews) December 6, 2016
So 20 days from now will be the day after Christmas, but that is likely holiday at courthouse. Petition for rehearing might take a few days— Phil Cross (@philsnews) December 6, 2016
My best guess is the Mixon video will be held by City of Norman until first of the year— Phil Cross (@philsnews) December 6, 2016
Based on what’s been reported, it looks like the video will reach the public shortly after the Sugar Bowl. Mixon leads the Sooners with 1,183 rushing yards and is second on the team with 32 receptions and 449 yards receiving yards. If Mixon’s departure for the NFL after the completion of the season wasn’t a lock before these developments, it definitely is now.
