Jurors Don't Reach Consensus In Friendly Market Clerk's Case

After six hours of deliberation Wednesday, the jury remained deadlocked in the case of a former Friendly Market clerk. James Maxwell Walters, 21, went into the Cleveland County courtroom facing one count of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with a Dec. 21 store raid and he left still facing that charge. “The district attorney told everyone during closing arguments that they provided evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, even beyond their standard, and clearly some of the jurors didn’t agree,” Friendly Market defense attorney Blake Lynch said. Due to the mistrial, Walters, will likely appear for a jury trial in January. The second Friendly Market clerk, Cody Franklin, who is also charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, also is expected to appear for a jury trial in January. More here.

In 1989 during the Reagan Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] and the Department of Defense [DOD] signed an agreement that required that all surplus Department of Defense vehicles that did not meet the EPA emission standards to be destroyed as they were taken out of military service. That agreement has continued without amendment for the past 25 years. Fortunately, for thousands of fire departments across the country, the agreement has not been enforced.

According to a July 3 story in The Journal Record, George Geissler, Oklahoma’s Director of Forestry Services says that our state has more than 900 rural fire departments using about 8,800 pieces of equipment valued at a total of $150 million. In fact, the exact number of vehicles and equipment that have been sourced from the Federal Excess Personal Property [FEPP] and Firefighter Property [FPP] programs is 8,812 and according to a press release issued July 2 by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry.
