Ex-con Gets 8-year Prison Term For Attempting To Stab Two Stillwater Officers
(Stillwater, Okla.) — An ex-convict from Lincoln County avoided a jury trial this week in Payne County District Court by pleading guilty last week to attempting to stab two Stillwater police officers – five months after he got out of prison.
Chad Everett Roberts, 31, of Tryon, was given two concurrent eight-year prison terms last week for assault with a dangerous weapon on Stillwater Police Officers Shawn Millermon and Brett Moore on Jan. 16, 2016, court records show.
Payne County Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler ordered that Roberts’ sentences run at the same time as an eight-year prison term that Roberts was given three months ago in Lincoln County for knowingly concealing stolen property in 2016.
As part of a plea bargain in his Lincoln County case, a count of escape from arrest was dismissed by the prosecution, court records show.
Roberts had been released from prison in August 2015, after serving one and one-half years of three concurrent five-year sentences for second-degree burglary, grand larceny, and possessing stolen property in 2013 in Lincoln County, state Department of Corrections records show.
Roberts had previously served about two years of a two and one-half year prison term for child abuse in 2004 in Lincoln County after his probation was revoked in 2010, DOC records show.
Due to his criminal record, if Roberts had been convicted by a Payne County jury of attempting to stab two Stillwater police officers, he could have been given as much as two life prison terms, court records show.
