    AN OKLAHOMA mother who married her daughter after the two “hit it off” was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison after pleading guilty to incest. Patricia Ann Spann, 45, of Norman, Okla., pleaded guilty to the felony offence and admitted she married her biological daughter, 26-year-old Misty Velvet Dawn Spann. She must also register as a sex offender after her release from prison, the Oklahoman reported. Spann accepted a plea deal and was also sentenced to eight years on probation and fined $US1,500 ($1,904). The Duncan Police Department was informed of the incestuous marriage by an employee with the...

    TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar has said he is concerned Irish whiskey could be targeted as part of the escalating trade war between the US and the EU. Speaking on the first day of his week-long visit to the US, Mr Varadkar said when he hears the EU threaten to put import tariffs on US bourbon, it concerns him that Irish whiskey could also be hit with tariffs. “When I hear bourbon whiskey I think the next response could be tariffs against Irish whiskey,” he said. Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, Mr Varadkar warned that a cross-Atlantic...

    The plot for the next "Ocean's 11" sequel? Maybe not. An Oklahoma man was arrested at a Tulsa casino last week for allegedly faking his own kidnapping in order to collect ransom payments from his wife and friends, authorities said. Jonathon Michael Davis, 34, of Owasso, had been missing for three days when his wife reported him missing, according to the Owasso Reporter. She said she had received text messages from her husband's cellphone, purportedly from her husband's captor, police told the newspaper.

    An Oklahoma murder mystery has brought tourists to the town of Arcadia for decades. An old gas station has sat along Route 66 for about a century. If you stop by, Sam Gillaspy, who goes by “Mr. Sam,” is happy to share his story about the station's checkered past. Sam says that back in the 1930s, when two brothers owned the station, a salesman stopped by to ask if they wanted to make counterfeit bills. The illegal business took off. "The counterfeiters, they built a little room back there," Mr. Sam explained. "Then they had a table right here and...

    FULL TITLE: Petition demands Oklahoma judge be removed from the bench after 13-year-old girl's rapist gets NO jail time More than 100,000 people are demanding an Oklahoma judge step down after he spared a child rapist jail. The push comes amid revelations the judge had allowed convicted child rapists or pedophiles to avoid jail on at least seven previous occasions. Marshall County District Judge Wallace Coppedge sentenced Benjamin Lawrence Petty to just 15 years of probation after he pleaded guilty to raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old at a church camp in 2016. Petty, 36, a cook at the Falls Creek...

    HB 2951 has been introduced in the Oklahoma House. It is an interesting version of Constitutional Carry. The bill adds self-defense to the list of activities that are exceptions to the general prohibition on carrying weapons that exist in Oklahoma law. It includes knives as well as guns. From Coody said House Bill 2951 is about law-abiding citizens protecting themselves in worst-case situations. The proposed legislation says anyone 21 or older, or at least 18 years old and a veteran or enlisted military member, would be able to carry a gun or rifle without a license. Here is the...

He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

    Today on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) chatted with host Chuck Todd about the proper solutions to end mass shootings such as the one that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida that left 17 innocent Americans killed. Sen. Lankford argued for more extensive background checks, but maintained that the right to own guns is still a constitutional right that must be respected and recognized. Sen. Lankford also emphasized that the ultimate problem is not the type of gun used, but the intent of the person wielding the gun that makes the difference.  The host asked Sen. Lankford what,...

    During a February 18 appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) told Chuck Todd that handguns are used for crime far more often than AR-15s. Lankford’s statement followed Todd’s focus on how an 18-year-old can buy an AR-15 in Florida, but must be 21 in order to buy a handgun. During the live broadcast, Lankford responded, “An AR-15 is a rifle, a handgun is obviously a handgun…[and] there are three, four, five times as many crimes committed with a handgun than there are with a rifle.” He added, “When you look at the statistics, many, many, many,...

    The president and founder of Kentucky’s Creation Museum in Petersburg and the Ark Encounter in Williamstown has been dropped as a speaker at the University of Central Oklahoma after a LGBT group objected. Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, had been scheduled to speak March 5 at the public university in Edmond, Okla. Stockton Duvall, student body president at the university, took responsibility for the decision to rescind Ham’s invitation after learning of the opposition to his visit.

    DALLAS - If you can’t win big, go small. That’s the strategy gaining momentum among criminal justice reformers in the age of Trump, as the federal government hardens its approach to law enforcement. Instead of pouring money and energy into squeezing change out of Washington, national civil rights organizations are teaming with local groups to push their agendas in county-level district attorney races, where a few thousand votes can determine who asserts the most influence over the local justice system. Picking their targets carefully, and crunching election data to influence pivotal voter blocs - and benefiting from the largesse of...

    An official in Barack Obama’s White House resigned in 2016 because he was arrested for taking pictures up women’s skirts on DC Metrorail cars, according to the Daily Mail. The official, William Mendoza, was the executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education until he resigned in November 2016. Mendoza was convicted after pleading guilty in January 2017 to attempted voyeurism, a misdemeanor. According to the Daily Mail, he used his government-issued iPhone — during work hours — to take the photos and resigned as the Department of Education was readying an investigation into...
