Gray Pleads Not Guilty

Angela La Don Gray, 39, of Muldrow pleaded not guilty to one felony count and two misdemeanors at her arraignment Wednesday afternoon in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw. Gray was charged August 14 in district court with failure to stop, accident resulting in non-fatal injury, and two misdemeanors, contributing to the delinquency of minors and selling and furnishing alcoholic beverage to a minor. The charges resulted from an investigation into an ATV accident on September 1, 2013, south of Muldrow that left Christian A. Mayberry of Muldrow with a traumatic brain injury.

 According to the investigator's report, Gray was allegedly driving the ATV while drunk, and crashed the ATV. She called her son and a friend, Kyle Lewis Brannon, to come help. According to the report the young men cleaned up the beer cans and a cooler at the scene and Gray left the scene in her son's truck. In the meantime Mayberry was left lying, unconscious, in a ditch for about three hours. Gray has denied driving the ATV, but the investigator reported Gray showed a 99 percent deception rate on two questions when she submitted to a polygraph examination on September 5, 2013. The questions were, "Were you driving the Ranger ATV at the time of the crash?" and "Were you driving the Ranger ATV on the dirt road at the time of the crash?"

Brannon is also facing charges as a result of the wreck. Gray's son, who turned 18 on August 17, is no longer a minor and may also be charged. Judge Lawrence Langley noted that Gray's attorney, Gary Buckles of Poteau, called the court earlier Wednesday to notify the court of this attachment to the case. Judge Langley set Gray's next court appearance for 9:30 a.m. September 3 on his felony disposition docket. That is when it will be determined if the case will continue to trial. Gray is free on bond.
