Don't know that anyone still looks at this but if any of you do, you should know that he is back in jail for another DUI. The DA might actually keep him this time. If you write the DA and let him know how strongly you guys feel about this and it may influence their decisions on how they deal with him this time.

Guys, if you knew him, you would know that half of the things being said aren't true. This was an accident. He did not mean to hurt anyone. I am going to make sure he turns his life around regardless of what it takes. Besides, being in jail isn't helping the victims anyway. How is he supposed to pay the damages if he is locked up and can't work to pay for his mistakes? Seriously, would the victims like to have their medical bills paid? If he does get out, he can get a job and work to pay back everyone he hurt on accident. He is very sorry about all of this. I speak to him on a daily basis and there is not a day that goes by that he doesn't express how sorry he is. And just for the record, he is NOT a rich, spoiled South Tulsa brat! He is a human being that has made a mistake or two and is paying for it everyday of his life. If you could just sit down and listen to him you guys would realize he is not a bad guy, just someone who has made a few wrong choices.
How many wrong choices does he get to make?

Sorry guys. I don't believe it for a minute. He's not a jerk. I know about his problem and am going to get him help. Shame on you for judging people.
it's awesome that you have it in your heart to take on trying to help this guy, but if you've been so close to him and all, I would think that if he wanted your help, he would've changed already. He ocviously doesn't want to be helped. I realize you have faith in the guy, but when is that not enough? I'm sure you're his girlfriend or something like that, which means I'm sure he's cheated on you before, cause there are posts on here commenting on his cheating ways. So what I'm wondering is why do you bond him out and take his side when he's also hurt you? All people deserve a second chance, but this boy has had several chances and screwed them all up. Wouldn't you think that you're time and good will would be better used helping people that want to change their lives?

Pointing the fingers at others for judging someone who is a danger to themself and others? Your reasoning makes no sense and you point fingers in the wrong direction.
"An enabler, is a person who by their actions make it easier for an addict to continue their self-destructive behavior by criticizing or rescuing. To enable the individual with the addiction, the mutually dependent person makes excuses and lies for the addict, which enables the addiction to continue. The enabler thinks unreasonably by believing he can maintain healthy relationships through manipulation and control. Is it normal for someone to think that he can maintain a healthy relationship when he does not address problems and he lies to protect others from their responsibilities? The ongoing matter in a codependent home, are to avoid conflicts and problems and to make excuses for destructive or hurtful behavior. Any time you assist/allow another person to continue in their unproductive/unhealthy/addicti ve behavior, whether actively or passively, you are enabling. Sometimes enabling takes the form of doing something for another that they should do for themselves. It also takes the form of making excuses for someone else’s behavior. You more than likely enable out of your own low self-esteem. You haven’t gained the ability to say no, without fear of losing the love or caring of that other person. People who learn tough love have to learn that their former behaviors have been enabling and that to continue in them would represent allowing the other person’s pattern of behavior to continue and to worsen."
Help yourself and then you could actively help him.

Lnc-
You go!! You are so right-trying to always come up with excuses or covering this or that up is exactly what happens in this sort of relationship. I hope 'on his side' gets the help they need because I would hate for something bad to happen to them.

Talked to Jack (the D.A.) today! He said they will not offer a deal less than 35 years!! Great news!! The other DUI will be another case, they will not be under the same trial.

what i really want to know is who keeps covering up for this guy? when you try to look up his records nothing comes up. very, very interesting. i would also like to say that i don't think 35 years is good enough. he sould serve way more than that. he's a danger to our society and our children! maybe someone could start a poll to keep him behind bars for a very long time! he should have to pay for all the wrong that his mommy and daddy bailed him out of.

Did you look under Jake Gibbons? Try Jacob Gibbons! If you go to oscn.net and search Jacob Gibbons all his charges will come up. Just FYI!!

I agree with you though, he should have to serve more than 35 years for everything he has done to everyone!! His mommy and daddy will be visiting him in the pin for a while!!

FYI-- Jacob Gibbons plead a blind plea and his formal sentencing is April 5, 2010!! For all that would like to attend!! He thinks he is getting out with no sentence but the D.A. said at least 30 so we will see!! I hope it's the max which I think is 41 years!!

I happened to go and read the police reports. IT specifically stated that the man whose leg was amputated, didn't know Gibbons, didn't have any words with Gibbons, and he said under oath that he knew Gibbons was not out to get him he was drunk. I am not saying Gibbons was right by any means, but get the FACTS CORRECT BEFORE YOU BRAG

I LOOKED HIM UP ON OSCN AND EVERYTHING WAS THERE. HE OBVIOUSLY HAS MAJOR ALCOHOL PROBLEMS. And I agree, he should spend time. He is spending more time than murderors and rapists. Make our prisons bigger.

INNOCENT LISTENER you are exactly right, if you saw the article in the Tulsa World, I'm sure you noticed that below the article about Jacob Gibbons there was a guy charged with accesory to murder and he received probation. It really seems like our legal system is helping out the citizens so very much. When people are charged with a DUI they are supposed to have breathalizers in their vehicles and their license is supposed to be taken away. Maybe this entire situation could have been avoided had the court system actually held up to the punishments that they say they are going to impose. Had they taken away his license and put a breathalizer in his car, he wouldn't have been able to start his car at all, and none of this would have happened. Considering that his girlfriend at the time allowed him to drive her car while he was drunk, you should also be angry with her. He does have a drinking problem and if the law had followed through with things the way they should have, he may have corrected his actions before anyone had been hurt. So accidents do happen, but they can always be avoided had the proper precautions been taken. There are several people to be mad at in this situation but the guilt is definately spread out, not all his. He is serving time for his actions and no one else is being blamed. The bouncers took a drunk individual to his vehicle and told him to leave, really what person in their right mind takes a person to their car rather than calling them a cab. As for the girlfriend, why would you allow him to drive a vehicle that is in your name, hence leaving you liable. Which you should be for being so irresponsible. The law for not doing the things that they should have when the first problem presented itself several years ago. He is donig his time and receiving his punishment now, what about the rest of you?

He got handed a twenty five year term!! He is trying to get our of his plea now though!! What an idiot!! He does have a serious ALCOHOL and at one time DRUG problem!!! And to the person that wrote the last comment his mommy and daddy have always bailed him out therefore he has not been punished for his actions. There is no one else to blame for this other than Gibbons!!
