Gov. Mary Fallin calls beheading ‘act of cowardice’; Death penalty sought

http://twitter.com/#!/GovMaryFallin/status/517026897373298688

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin issued a press release today insisting that the perpetrator of the Vaughn Foods beheading will be brought to justice. Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn has indicated that he will seek the death penalty in the case.

“Since the attack was reported, I have been communicating with law enforcement as well as Oklahoma’s Department of Homeland Security to ensure a thorough investigation is conducted into the motives of the attacker,” wrote Fallin. “That investigation is still ongoing, and it is unclear at this time whether the crime was an act of terrorism, workplace violence, or a gruesome combination of both.”

I hope Oklahoma get it right & file murder 1 special circumstances against Alton Nolen and seek the death penalty. #WorkplaceViolenceMyBum

Alton Nolen murdered in the name of Islam – hated "infidels". That's a hate crime and he should get the death penalty.

Press release on charges against former GSA official Jeffrey Neely: http://t.co/7xvEB8WfwF

— Ryan J. Reilly (@ryanjreilly) September 26, 2014

Neely faces up to five years in prison if convicted according to the DOJ press release:

The indictment includes three false claims counts, under 18 U.S.C. § 287, and two counts of making false statements and using false documents, under 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Neely is scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court in San Francisco on October 20, 2014, before the Honorable Elizabeth D. Laporte, United States Magistrate Court Judge.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment, and a fine of $250,000 for each violation. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.
