   (Stillwater, Okla.) – A Cushing man, who admitted possessing a stolen 2002 Dodge truck on Sept. 5 — two months after he was placed on probation for having methamphetamine on June 1 of this year and illegally using a Jeep found in the Cimarron Casino parking lot in Perkins on June 2 of last year, was given a six-month jail term on Nov. 28 followed by extensive conditions.
    Zachary Tyler Neal, 28, who has been in custody for three months, remained jailed Monday morning, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH.
    On his release, Neal must enroll in and successfully complete the Payne County Drug Court program, be on probation for nine and one-half years, have a substance abuse evaluation, follow any recommendations, undergo random drug tests, perform 100 hours of community service and pay the cost of his incarceration along with court costs and $700 in assessments.
    For violating the terms of his probation in his two earlier felony cases, Neal was given two concurrent six-month jail terms by Payne County Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler last week.
    Two months before he had the stolen truck in Cushing, Neal had pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine, transporting a loaded Glock 17 gun in the front seat of a vehicle on Oak Grove Road and having drug paraphernalia on June 1.
    In that case, Neal had been placed on five years’ probation except 90 days in jail with credit for time served, along with an order to comply with the methamphetamine registry, perform 50 hours of community service, have a substance abuse evaluation, follow any recommendations, undergo random drug testing, and pay the cost of his incarceration along with $1,250 in fines and assessments.
    For transporting a loaded firearm, Neal had been given a concurrent 90-day jail term with credit for time served and a $100 fine. For having drug paraphernalia, Neal had been given a concurrent 90-day jail term with credit for time served.
    On the same day that he was sentenced on those charges, Neal had pleaded guilty to unauthorized use of a Jeep on June 2, 2016, in Perkins, for which he was given a concurrent five-year probationary term except 90 days in jail with credit for time served and a $500 fine.
    Neal had also previously been charged with concealing stolen property in Drumright, a felony that on June 24, 2016, was reduced to misdemeanor petty larceny, for which he was given a six-month jail term, all suspended except 21 days with credit for time served, Creek County court records show.
