CRAIG KEY INDICTED! See www.news9com
"A grand jury indicted Key on multiple charges. He's accused of cashing checks with forged signatures, using money that was supposed to pay for a client's medical bills for other purposes and stealing cattle."
Gee, I wonder if "under seige in oklahoma" is gonna pop in and defend himself again...
:P
Stealing cattle? Really?..The folks on this thread were right all along (just read from the beginning).
Like I said at the beginning of this thread... this is the start of something wonderful....

<quoted text>Very aggravating to be accused of being someone else and very aggravating to be told I am defending him, when, in fact, I am not defending him, I am asking any and all of you what proof, what charges and the response has been like a bunch of grade school kids. There are no criminal charges that have been filed at this point. Yep, search warrants were served and stuff was taken, but to what point has yet to be determined and I still say that there is more than one person that the information taken by search warrant might be concerning. We have a justice system that should be allowed to function, instead of all these folks out here claiming it is something that it isn't. Until a criminal charge is filed, it is an investigation. And also, is this search warrant from a grand jury investigation? Don't know if the folks in Chandler understand how that works, not sure many of the posters on this forum understands how that works. Some of them certainly don't act like the understand.
You ask for proof? Just go to the news channels. We were right all along Craig. I mean okie under siege..... Unfortunately he's not being indicted for ALL the crimes he has done. At least not yet. His victims know what I'm talking about..

Everybody, go to www.oscn.net , choose "docket search" and type in the names of Craig's buddies in crime:
Brandon Ray Dawson (of Chandler)
Joshua E. Anderson (Agra)
Leslie L. Bottger (Agra)

Note the multiple FELONIES and MISDEMEANOR convictions for forgeries, drug posession, drug manufacturing, multiple orders of protection, eluding officers, malicious injury to property, false pawn declaration, knowingly concealing stolen property...

Priceless.....

Well, you still have the same problem you previously had. You have an idea in that teeny, tiny brain of yours and you just can't get it cleared out. I am not a Key, I am not a Craig. I am not a defender of a person, I am a defender of our judicial system. You claim a newschannel as proof. Are you really that unschooled and ignorant of how things work? Do you think because you saw it on t.v. that something is true? By golly, I've heard of folks like you that heard the radio broadcast of "The War of the Worlds" and thought that it was an actual true event happening in real time, but never met one who would really admit to it.

When the cases are filed and brought to court and the jury renders a verdict, then you can count that as proof of guilt. Until then, you should really concentrate on not poisoning the jury pool, as I'm sure you'd hate for there to be a change of venue.

Hey Craig Buddy, is this really you again ? Got more time on your hands lately ? If you get really bored I have money and cattle and some other things of value you could try your hand at. Just be careful as I have a pretty good alarm system with many cameras, some of which are infrared among other things. I see the witness list is up to 24 folks on just two of the indictments. Got yourself some pretty good friends. BTW, next time don't use a friend who is willing to sell cattle at an auction and risk prison for just $ 200. He will sell you out for a cigarette.(he might have done that already) oops The World is an ugly place and some times there is justice..........

Hey is this you Craig ? We know as a society that you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent. Why do I say this ? Because lots of innocent people are in jail until their court dates and lots of innocent people sit in prison. Your above statement is insane and untrue and is proven so daily in our society. Do you really thing anyone cares about a change of venue ? Only Craig would care about such.

Quite a screen name you have there. I have no idea what Key's strategy will be and neither do you. However, there is room for some speculation. I think either change of venue or that they will challenge the various judges to recuse themselves because they have had a close working relationship with him, or have conflicts of interest because of either representing each other OR there is bound to be at least one of them that is related to him in some way or another. Look at this logically, are they going to be able to find a jury that contains the proper number of persons that have not either been represented by him, or had him be the opposition counsel or that he wasn't involved in their cases as a judge?
Of course there is probably an option of some type of plea arrangement, but that is probably dependent upon who has which axe to grind and how hard they want to grind it. Oh, and it could also depend upon what information might be up for trade.
Also, someone seems to have a bit of a misunderstanding of the witness lists attached to the indictments. Yes, it lists those witnesses, but it doesn't tell you their testimony, if any. Look at the list and count those who aren't investigators, "wounded parties" who are also listed as witnesses, and also look and see how many you think either had no information of real value and who might have claimed the 5th. Unless you have studied up on the inner workings of grand juries, have been a member of a grand jury, appeared before a grand jury, or have at least read what the OBA says about grand juries, you probably don't have a real clear idea of what actually goes on. You need to hold your horses in check and wait. And since I don't really expect anyone to be making a plea deal in a hurry, I expect it will be many, many months down the road before anything happens on this. Oh, and for those of you who think that there will be tons more criminal cases filed against Key, I have to ask you why you think that. If they have good evidence and good prosecution and get convictions at the max for these counts, I don't think they will file other cases. I guess they could, but how old is that codger anyway? Isn't he in his 60s? I'd say a waste of taxpayer money to prosecute on more cases unless it is something spectacular, or unless all of these indictments fall by the way.

What kind of sheriff do we have here in Lincoln Co., When A person who has 3 felony warrants can stand in open court and NOT be arrested. Well thats just what happened today here in court, Craig Key came to court to defend a client and Nothing happen, He just did His thing and left, No Cops running in,Guns drawn, No taser's deployed, No pepper spray, No Nothing.....Really??? What the Hell just happened?, I can ony imageine if that was Me, Or somebody else, We would have been in Jail so fast, It would have left a vapor trail....I fear that once again, Craig will have his way with the system here in Good old Lincoln Co. The Sheriff's dept. needs to be ashamed of it self......What a bunch of Loser's thet are....

Folks... Look at the Topix thread under "What about attorney Craig Key".

That puppy's finally busted. It's on the attorney general's website. Time to party people. A lying, stealing, self-centered man is being held accountable for at least a couple of his crimes over the years.

Don't take my word for it. Check out the thread.

Well, I'm just going to venture that there was probably already an agreement in the works for him to surrender himself on a certain date. I'm only surprised that he didn't get to O.R. out instead of posting a bond.
