Gray Plea Agreement in Negotiations

The Sequoyah County District Attorney’s office and the attorney for Angela Gray of Muldrow, who is accused of conspiracy, child endangerment by driving under the influence and selling or furnishing alcoholic beverage to a minor, are in negotiations for a plea deal, District Attorney Jack Thorp conformed Friday morning.

Gary Buckles, the Poteau attorney who represents Gray in the case, said he had “No comment,” on Friday. A spokeswoman for Buckles said his office did not receive the offer until Friday morning, and at that time Buckles had not been able to discuss the offer with Gray.

Gray is accused of participating in the ATV crash on Sept. 1, 2013, south of Muldrow which left Christian Mayberry, 16 at the time, with severe brain trauma. Gray and two juvenile boys, one of whom is her son, were accused of covering up the crash while Mayberry laid nearby without medical help. The trial on those earlier charges ended in a mistrial when the jury could not agree on a verdict.

The different set of charges against Gray were filed on Aug. 31, 2015.

Thorp said Friday, “We are working back and forth on the negotiations. There are always lots of negotiations toward the end of a case. I’ve got two prosecutors working on this case.”

Thorp said the plea agreement was acceptable to the Mayberry family, which also has a civil lawsuit filed in district court against Gray. That lawsuit remains unsettled.

Thorp said earlier reports that Friday was the deadline for Gray to accept or reject the plea agreement were incorrect. He said there was no deadline.

Court records show that a plea agreement hearing, not a trial, is set for 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 10 in district court before Judge Jeff Payton.
