The jury trial for one Oklahoma man ended with a guilty verdict, jail time, and a hefty fine.
Charles Bo Gilley, 36, of Ardmore, was charged with distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in January 2018. Gilley initially pled not guilty and opted for a jury trial, which was set and heard Tuesday in Carter County District Court by Judge Thomas Baldwin. Gilley, accused of distribution of methamphetamine, faced possible fines of up to $20,000 and jail time of up to two years. According to Carter County District Attorney Craig Ladd, the jury recommended two years and a fine of $5,000 after finding the defendant guilty. The fine and prison sentence was so ordered by Judge Baldwin.
Gilley also faces two misdemeanor charges for unlawful possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Those charges will be heard by Judge Baldwin Monday. The misdemeanor charges could hold additional fines, up to $1,000 per charge and additional prison time, up to a year for each charge.
