The U.S. attorney’s office in Muskogee announced that Decklyn Starr, 54, of Fort Smith and with Sequoyah County connections, has been indicted by the U.S. Federal grand Jury with two counts of stalking, and interstate communication of a threat.
The Indictment alleges that from about April and continuing through June 8, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, also known as Ira Wofford, with the intent to kill, injure, harass and intimidate, used a telephone to engage in a course of conduct that placed a person with the initials S.E. in reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury, causing emotional distress.
The crime is punishable by no more than five years imprisonment, a fine up to $250,000 or both for each count.
The Indictment further alleges that on or about June 8, 2017, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma and elsewhere, the defendant telephoned a threatening message from New Mexico to injure another party, which is punishable by no more than five years imprisonment, a fine up to $250,000 or both.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Snow is handling the case.
