No Charges in Cemetery Desecration

6-1-05 - No charges are planned against employees of the southeastern Oklahoma town of Clayton who moved several tombstones in Clayton's Old Town Cemetery.

Pushmataha County assistant District Attorney James Wolfe says
three city employees admit moving the markers, some of which are
more than 100-years-old. The workers told Wolfe they moved the
markers when they were mowing the cemetery and didn't realize they
were disturbing gravesites.

The stones have been replaced, but some residents say some of
the stones were not returned to the proper location.
