Speaking of possible punishment, what would the sentence be in a trial like this if convicted?

Today he was arrested becuae he has 3 warrants. One for child support and 2 from the IRS because he owes over $400,000 in federal taxes for his business. He may be let out on bail for those warrants. Sentencing isnt until November for the sex charges. So yes, until November he is free to go back to Oklahoma or wherever he chooses. Plese heep your teenage children away from him. Again,he was found guilty on various sexual counts with a minor, very serious felonies. He has to no be evaluated to see if he isa Sexually Violent Predator, that is why sentencing isn't for another 3 mnths. He will have to register on Megans Law for the rest of his life as well.

Well we all know now that his lies were just that lies. He is a sex offender. If he has any sense he will not return to our local track because we all know the truth.

I guarantee he will return to the track, racing is is other passion besides teenage boys. He thinks he is so great at it even though he sucks. Beware Oklahoma residents, he will return because he's too much of a coward to stay in York where everyone knows the real truth!!!!

Sick as it sounds, his sprint car and trailer were at our track last night with a 16 year old boy driving it and his family approvong of it. Every one at the track let them know they were disgusted to have the car there and their son driving and they said he told them to keep it and drive it because it might be a while before he came back. The track promoter is aware of the situation along with every other sprint car track in Oklahoma. He will not be allowed to enter any of them so he will move to the next state and we will make sure they all know his story too.

That does make me and many others sick to know that. But it also makes a lot of us feel better that your making an effort to make others aware, that is what needs to be done because he will keep trying until he is locked away. On behalf of many here in Pennsylvania thank you for your efforts!!!

Another Oklahoma mom is right about one thing...the car and trailer that shawn used were at the race track. The details left out are that shawn didnt own the car and trailer and the owner offered the ride to the sixteen year old kid she mentioned. another thing left out was the car and trailer were stripped of everything as shawn has no further contact with the car owner or the race team involved. however not one person made mention of how sick they were to see this kid in this. Not real sure where this is headed for shawn and actually i hope he rots away the rest of his life. He fed his line and the attitude of this team was we will see in time. After all the legal system says a jury of twelve of your peers and they did their job. As far as him coming back to oklahoma i dont see that happening cause he will be way better off in jail. So I just wanted to set the record straight about this particular car and team cause shawn is the sick bas@#!d at fault here not this sixteen year old driver or the car owner who gave him an enormous opportunity. So lets keep things in perspective cause no one else should have to carry around any of shawns jacked up ideals or habits. Shawn, bubba has your name wrote on his cell wall just waiting for ya man. Paybacks a witch.

I too know the owner of the car and be reassured was a "victim of manipulation" . The 16 y/o driver of the car was indeed given an excellant opportunity and I think all should be more supportive of him. Shawn will NEVER have anything to do with the race world again. Good luck to all in Oklahoma and to the owner of the car... your car... no longer a car that Shawn claimed as his...

It is wonderful to hear that he doesnt own the car and it really does give someone else an opportunity to drive it and make something positive out of it. At least something good has come out of all of this.

I agree with everything you said, except your last thought. Remember what Shawn is. He's looking forward to his bubba moment. It's right up his alley (no pun intended)!
