Let me set some records straight, I can tell you, the key family have bought and givin away 3 automobiles over the last 3 yrs. These autos were givin to under privilaeged kids, with no compensation for the family.I know of cases where Craig hired someones daughter, even when he didnt need her in his office. the last time i checked, there was still an american flag flying over our courthouse in chandler oklahoma. In america, were innocent until provin guilty, so let give the judical system a chance to work in this case.
You are praising a man who gave away 3 automobiles but doesn't pay his bills and all his employee checks bounce! Anything Craig Key does has catch and finally he has been caught. Hopefully the Judicial system will work and give him a nice round number like 20 years.

Maybe instead of buying cars for others he should have paid his debts...and thank goodness he won't be tried in Chandler...it's about time he faces the music for what he's done and suffers the consequences...and again federal agents don't show up freeze your assets, shut down your business and take everything from it using a sealed warrant based on lies and rumors...get a brain people...he's a loser...always has been just has always gotten away with it in a small town...he got a little too big for his britches and now it's time he pays...

Think about it people if they REALLY had something on Mr. Key they would of arrested him but didn't he is a free man with no charges against him... I know that there may be some fishy things about him but we all have issued all I'm saying is if they had something he would be behind bars!!! My prayers go out to the key family and I know in the end he will still be the amazing man and father

Are you kidding me! You feel sorry for this thief. I think you should re evaluate your feelings. Think about all the people this man jUDGED. The fathers that did pay child support and did show up to see their children. And he would rule for the grudge holding mothers not in any way thinking about the child. How about the land owners that he cheated. Look at all the people just on this page that needed his professional help. They paid him and he kept there money without providing professional service. SHAME ON YOU feel sorry for the real victims. Not this thieving drug addict lawyer. But then again maybe you are part of his good ol boy crowd.

I agree with many others here. While i dont think anyone should use this forum to "bash' anyone or air personal vendettas, there are obviously a bunch of us with the same story. And yes, it makes me think, was he using the hard-earned money i paid him for a legitimate legal problem to hire someone's daughter or donate cars? Really i had to obtain a bank loan to come up with his retainer and he did nothing whatsoever to help me. What i cant understand is how, up to three days ago, he eas still being reported as in 'good standing' with the ok bar association???? And again i ask, what happens to all of us 'little people'??? This has nothing yo do with craig as a father, old school chum, seemingly nice caring guy, etc but purely with his failure to act in a responsible, ethical, and professional manner, as his position dictated.

Learn how federal court works you idiot...he will be indicted...he will walk free until it goes to court and is found guilty...then he'll serve his time in a facility for white collar criminals instead of in a place like Mcalister where he should go! Educate yourself before you make idiotic comments!

My brother is doing 25 years because of this "man."
I don't know that I consider him a man, he was by far the poorest lawyer I have ever encountered. Did very little in the 3 days of trial, seemed to have worked it out with Judge what the outcome would be before the trial ever started.
I strongly urge every one to keep your distance from this man and this county.

Surely you jest! You think they came and seized everything in his office because they had nothing on him! It was a Federal Warrant, they weren't playing games. They are just solidifying their case and it could take months. He will be free until the indictments are handed down. Then he will go down too. We all have issues? I have never done drugs or stolen from others, those are not issues they are crimes. Amazing men and fathers do not put their families in the position his are in. I am married to an amazing man, my life is secure, because he has always worked hard to provide for me. To my children and grandchildren he is a hero because of his actions. Craig is an amazing criminal who hopefully is to be able to redeem himself by going to jail, but since he is beyond broke those he has stolen from will never receive restitution. On another note, the people who knew about his criminal activities and did nothing do not deserve prayers. His victims, however, do deserve them.

<quoted text> No doubt there have been many enablers to help Craig get into this mess. Just saw that 3 mortgages, taxes and student loans are involved. Totals over $500,000 dollars. Really surprised about the student loan. The idea of setting up the abstract business and taking on the system sank the ship. The DHS case, election and then the book. Sounds like stolen cattle may be involved. Hopefully the investigators will make it to the courthouse. I would imagine there are a lot of nervous people on Manvel.
I agree that there are probably a lot of nervous people on Manvel! Who knows how many other good ol' boys are involved. I bet the whole town will be in shock when this whole thing comes out. Craig is such a coward you know he will be ratting out everyone to try and make it better for him.

Well, everybody ought to take a deep breath and ask themselves if they really know something for a fact, or if it is just what they've been hearing through the grapevine.

I'm sure some people ought to be nervous. They could raid an office for evidence, but don't automatically assume that they evidence they are seeking is against the owner of the office. Might be, might not be, might be that person plus others. At any rate, this shouldn't be tried in the court of public opinion, it needs to wait for its day in court.

It is not against the law to have financial troubles or even to be sued in court for your indebtedness. It might not look good, but it isn't a crime. It happens to lots of folks and sometimes there are valid reasons to get off track financially, such as illness in the family or loss of income or even the college expenses for children.

He has a right to a trial, and gossip (even if it is well-founded) should not be repeated to the point of tainting possible pools of jurors.

Key used the money to pay for the vehicles he gave away from the money he had stolen from his innocent victims (clients) when he promised to represent them and did absolutely NOTHING except STEAL their money, OUR money !!! So you sit their judging us, the ones who are victims of his theft however you have not been a victim YET, so YOU should be the FIRST one to give YOUR money to KEY to pull him out of the mess HE created not just for him but what he brought his family into. He is a thief and a liar with no morales, ethics or professionalism. Pull your head out of your butt cause many bad folks go to church weekly that DOES NOT make them a Christian or a good person. Many thieves, murderers, child molesters show their faces in church weekly..........

I'm sure no one FORCED you to hire him as your attorney, if in fact you ever retained him as your attorney. If you don't feel you were properly represented, their are legal remedies for that. Right now, you are just engaging in gossip. You throw out threats and yet, you are not pointing out any specific "crimes" or proof of what you are ranting about.

Are you implying the trial was not fair, or just unhappy about the sentence?

A community that enables a crooked attorney makes it hard to get him stopped, but hopefully what I have heard is true..... He is to appear before the Bar Association this next week and is said to be in big trouble. Time will tell.

No one "forced" them to hire him. Wow, I guess a woman that goes out on a date and gets date raped, deserved it. No one forced her to go out on the date. Really? I was gonna ask if you were OSU or OU, but then I bet you are Taco Bell University all the way. We're all awed by your acumen and wit, or at least, the half of it you show through your words.

Your logic is infantile: bless your heart. All of us see it, but few will comment. They just nod their heads. Craig chose his actions. His family may or may not suffer because if his actions. Their suffering is Craig's fault, period. Time will give the feds opportunity to build their case with the fruits of their search warrants. I have personal experience with the man, I hired the cunning liar, and back in the old days, he would have been hung and left for the vultures. Once again, I'm one of his former clients, speaking from experience.

Now go make that Nacho Bell Grande, with extra jalapenos, and make it snappy. Maybe, maybe you'll make manager.... some day.....
