From what I've read, the Sheriff's Office does not run the County Jail so the responsibility to watch the people in the jail falls on the County Jail Admiistration.
Didn't this guy Lake get fired for a criminal record out of Florida that was not disclosed to the Sheriff when he was hired and wasn't the former Undersheriff responsible for the background on Lake at that time? This is the 2nd Deputy who was fired for having criminal convictions in his background that the former Undersheriff left out of the final background report that he provided to the Sheriff. Sounds to me like the former Undersheriff hid information on people HE was trusted to do backgrounds on and he is the one who the Sheriff relied on to provide complete and accurate information. Now that the convictions have been discovered and the guys who should have NEVER have been Law Enforcement are being weeded out, well hope they know they can't be Law Enforcement for anyone anywhere in Oklahoma, legally that is.

Art Kell couldn't tell the truth if his worthless life depended on it. Bottom line is that he wanted his Dept to be the hero and it backfired big time. Luckily the guy didn't kill anyone else but himself while Kell was glory hounding. He's not a true law man at all. He's a worthless lying puke. I commend Deputy Lake for standing up for what is right and putting that puke of a Sheriff in his place.

Art Kell is one of the finest men in Chickasha. He upholds justice and is doing the right thing. Anyone who goes to jail isn't happy and its truly unfortunate what has happened but, Kell is not the blame. When you committ a crime you at some point must face accountability. How you choose to handle it is up to you

Everyone in grady county justice system is crooked liars.its all about money these idiots had a gambling operation in the jail at one time and nobody got anything for it Herndon was in charge of it. He's not going to prosecute him self.and sense the "votors" let it go it's perfectly fine to do whatever they want. There is no law but the one they want it to be at the time. Good luck to all in shady grady u are all doomed
