District Attorney Cathy Stocker will protest all but two inmates from her district who are seeking parole at this month’s meeting of the state Pardon and Parole Board.

Stocker is protesting 17 of the 18 inmates with convictions in Garfield County; seven of the eight inmates with convictions in Canadian County; and the sole inmate seeking clemency with a conviction in Blaine County.

This month’s meeting is at the Hillside Community Corrections Center in Oklahoma City April 24 -27.

• Clu W. Campbell is serving a 10-year sentence for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after having a suspended sentence revoked for failing to meet the terms of his probation.

In April 1994, he and another man had followed two women from an Enid deli. The men followed the women in a truck, and Campbell’s companion got out and struck one of the women. Campbell assaulted the same woman with a 2-foot-long socket extension tool, Stocker said. Campbell told police he was drunk when the assault occurred.

Campbell was given a deferred sentence and ordered to pay more than $6,000 in restitution, which he failed to do. His deferred sentence became a five-year suspended sentence following a court order in February 2001.

In May 2004, Stocker’s office filed an application to revoke his suspended sentenced when he failed to meet probation guidelines, again failed to pay restitution and committed two more crimes. Campbell was ordered to serve nine years and nine months for the original crime and serve five years concurrently for a DUI subsequent offense conviction and four years consecutively for domestic abuse.

• Brian E. Chance is serving four years for possession of a controlled substance.

He was sentenced in May 2006 after being arrested in possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. Chance also was convicted in September 2000 for possession of a precursor with intent to manufacture.

• Billy D. Cossey is serving 15 years for trafficking.

In March 1995, Cossey had tried to mail more than 40 grams of amphetamine and four grams of heroin to Tulsa. The package was intercepted, and Cossey was taken into custody.

He pleaded guilty in May 1995 and also has burglary and theft-related convictions in Garfield County and two convictions in Cleveland County.

• Terry L. Cross purchased 576 pseudoephedrine pills, or 34.56 grams of pseudoephedrine, in a four-month period beginning in April 2004. During June and July of the same year, she bought 384 pills, or 23.04 grams, of pseudoephedrine.

Cross admitted she was paid $100 a box for the pills by meth manufacturers.

She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possession pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture, possession of a CDS and six counts of possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture. She also has prior convictions for false declaration of ownership in pawn and another possession of a CDS.

She is serving concurrent sentences on all the charges, with the longest sentence being seven years for the conspiracy charge.

• Burl O. Hamm Jr. led police on a high speed chase in October 2000 when police attempted to initiate a traffic stop for an expired insurance tag.

Hill was found guilty at a jury trial in September 2005 and was sentenced to five years for both cases, to be served concurrently.

• Bob Hillbolt was arrested while in possession of a .38-caliber revolver, two bags of methamphetamine and a police scanner.

He pleaded guilty to charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of CDS, possession of a firearm after felony conviction, unlawful use of a police radio and false declaration to a pawn broker.

He received a 20-year sentence for the first firearm charge and concurrent sentences on the other charges.

• Travis E. Jackson was convicted of distribution of a CDS, after former felony conviction, for selling drugs to a police informant in January 2001.

He received 10 years of probation. In December of the same year he again sold drugs to an informant. In June 2002, he purchased crack from a police informant.

In October 2002, Jackson pleaded guilty to the new drug charges and stipulated he had violated his parole.

He received 15-year sentences for distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a CDS with intent to distribute, both after former felony conviction. He received 10 years for unlawful delivery of CDS. All of his sentences are being served concurrently.

• Kevin B. Jones was found guilty by a jury in May 1997 for conspiring and attempting to kill the parents of a 17-year-old girl he had met, who said she was unhappy with her home life and wanted her parents killed.

Jones considered himself somewhat of a problem solver for kids this age, Stocker said, and when he met this girl, he said he would help her.

Jones had met twice with the girl to plan the murder of her parents, and on Jan. 30, 1996, Jones entered the girl’s home with a knife and attempted to kill her parents.

Jones tried to kill the father first, but he woke up to find Jones and received a 6- to 7-inch long knife wound. Doctors testified the cut was within a quarter-inch of being a fatal wound.

Jones’ charges were rebilled in 2000, with one of two original charges of conspiracy dropped to avoid facing double jeopardy.

• Jonathan C. Large pleaded guilty in February 2002 to possession of a substance with intent to manufacture a CDS and an application for a prior assault and battery with a dangerous weapon conviction.
