Man, 19, is familiar face

in Chickasha courtroom

On Feb. 25, 2012, Robert E. Hankins, 19, of Chickasha, was cited for traveling 126 mph and operating a motorcycle without a valid license in Grady County. He pleaded guilty to both charges and was fined $305 and courts costs.

Just a few weeks later, Hankins was back in court, this time cited for driving while intoxicated by the Chickasha Police Department. In March, he pleaded guilty and was fined $500 and court costs and ordered to perform 26 hours of community service. A judge deferred the sentence.

In May, Hankins again was back in court for speeding. He pleaded guilty and paid a $10 fine and court costs. A week later he was back again for speeding, failure to have insurance and violating license restrictions. He was convicted on all charges and paid $50 in fines plus court costs. Hankins could not be reached.

Tulsan stopped for driving

125 mph in his Jaguar

In July 2010, a trooper ticketed Sidney W. Wefer, 24, of Tulsa, for driving a 2002 Jaguar 125 mph on Interstate 44 in Tulsa. He was convicted and paid a $100 fine plus court costs. In the interim, he was cited again for speeding in Rogers County. He was convicted and fined $35 and court costs.

In October 2010, he was cited again for speeding, convicted and fined $75 plus court costs.

Then, in January 2011, Wefer was cited for speeding and driving on a suspended license. Wefer pleaded guilty to the speeding charge, but Rogers County Special District Judge Terrell Crosson deferred the sentence. The suspended-license charge was reduced to failure to have a driver's license in possession while driving. Wefer pleaded guilty and Crosson again deferred the sentence. Wefer could not be reached.

In August 2011, Chad A. Cradduck, 23, of El Reno, was ticketed for doing 120 mph in Sequoyah County. He was charged with speeding and attempting to elude an officer.

Cradduck pleaded guilty to the speeding charge and was fined $205 and court costs. He pleaded not guilty to eluding. Cradduck was fined $100 and court costs, but Sequoyah County Special District Judge Larry Langley deferred the sentence.

Cradduck previously had been cited for speeding and three times for not wearing a seat belt since 2009. He could not be reached.
