How easy it is to rip a person apart when they are down.As the Don Henley song says,"People love dity laundry". I in no way condone any of what he has done,been accused of,or charged with,but,I am also not going to get on the hate wagon either.It seems to me that there are a lot of"perfect"people in OK
in order to judge a person.Not one of you live this mans life.You most likely have never met him-with the exception of the former classmate.The south is suppose to be filled with church going,GOD-fearing,christians,b ut none of you are acting as such. A Christian-forgives&tries to help one get back on the right path,not judge,condemn, and crucify the person.
As for me,I can say I do know him. I did several years ago. Yes we do change,yes each of us have done things in our life that we are far from proud of,things that maybe no one knows but us and GOD.The last thing that we needed at that time was to be judged and crucified.
As a Christian,I pray he does turn his life around and get back on the right path to doing good.So,if the time ever comes or even the next time,you hurt someone(out of anger or hurt),do the wrong thing,make the wrong comment,you will realize that we ALL are first people,then officers of the court,drs.,pilots,caregivers,e tc.None of us have the right nor authority to judge. That is GODs right. We will face HIS decision when our time comes.Until then,don't judge unless you're free of all sin.

Lawyer accused of assaulting neighbor, 3 kids

Article from Glenpool Paper
GLENPOOL -- A lawyer who was censured in June after serving a one-year suspended sentence for outraging public decency was jailed again Wednesday.
This time he is accused of assaulting a neighbor and three children in their home.
Rhett Henry Wilburn, 44, was booked into the Tulsa Jail about 9 p.m. on four complaints of assault and battery and one of first-degree burglary. He was released early Thursday after posting more than $50,000 in bonds.
Police Sgt. Tracey Powell said Wilburn reportedly came out of his Glenpool home Wednesday afternoon and screamed and cussed at a 15-year-old boy who lives across the street.
Wilburn followed the boy into his home and put him into a "hugging type hold" as he continued a verbal barrage and demanded cigarettes, police say.
Wilburn is accused of grabbing the boy's 12-year-old cousin and asking her why she had an attitude before picking up a 5-year-old boy by the arms because he wouldn't shake his hand, Powell said. The 15-year-old's mother, Angela Bell, was baby-sitting the 5-year-old.
Police allege that Wilburn went back to the girl and asked her if "she could see stars" before head-butting her. "The mother is witnessing this trying to get him out of house," Powell said. "She says,'If you leave, I'll go get you some cigarettes.' "
Wilburn told her she had 10 minutes to do so, but he then allegedly lifted up her shirt and pushed her, Powell said.
He said the 5-year-old was bruised but that no one needed medical treatment.

Well as a Christian I can tell you had this man invaded my home I would have used deadly force against him. He is extremely lucky this woman did not have a firearm and he should be thankful. BTW, The Bible is not against self defense! Why do you think Peter carried a sword and why do you think Jesus said to sell your clothes to buy a sword if you don’t have one. Self Defense is a God given right and just because I am a Christian does not mean I would to let some psycho attack me and turn the other cheek.
What he did is appalling and he should be in prison for assaulting a several minors. I myself have had the unfortunate experience of encountering this guy before and he is a dangerous person.
