Pryor resident Vincent Kirby Jr. was charged with second degree rape in Mayes County District Court in May 2012.

According to court records, he had sexual intercourse “through use of force, accompanied by the apparent power

of execution” with a

16-year-old female.

He entered a plea of not guilty during his initial court appearance May 29.

On Nov. 9, the state of Oklahoma made a motion to amend the original information to rape in the first degree. In February, Kirby’s attorney filed an application to withdraw as his attorney of record. Kirby was appointed a new attorney within days.

Kirby appeared on the felony motion docket before Judge Terry McBride, April 10.

McBride  allowed the case to be continued until May 15 at

1:30 p.m.

In the case of State of Oklahoma vs. Jarod Scott, the defendant is charged with child abuse by injury.

Scott, of Kenwood, had the felony charges filed in November 2009.

Court records state, “on or about the 20th day of November, 2009, by willfully injuring a child, through inflicting abusive traumatic brain injury to said infant consistent with shaking.”

The infant was two months old at the time and in Scott's care.

Witnesses called included Department of Human Services, Pryor Police Department, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, a physician and a neighbor of Scott’s.

The event also resulted in a felony charge of omitting to provide for a minor child.

At the defendant's request, both cases  were continued until June 12.

Scott's records reflected a protective order and a child abuse suit, both in 2010.

On Aug. 7, 2012, Dennis Murray, Coweta, was charged wtih kidnapping.

Court records state that he forcibly seized a minor, confining her in his vehicle. The incident occurred on Highway 412 and Murphy Road, without lawful authority and with the intent to cause her to become confined/imprisoned against her will.

Murray had been convicted of felonies prior to this charge. At his preliminary court hearing his bond was set at

$1 million.

Murray appeared before Judge Terry McBride on the Mayes County District Court felony motion docket, April 10.

He was scheduled to make another court appearance April 12.

In 2005, Murray committed a felony by failing to register as a sex offender in Osage County and was sentenced to a three-year suspended in the Department of Corrections. He was charged with sexual battery in 1995 in Tulsa county. He was found guilty and was sentenced to five years in the Department of Corrections on that charge.
