ARDMORE, Okla. -- A former Carter County Drug Task Force investigator was in court Thursday morning. Kevin McIntire pleaded guilty to charges concerning the former Carter County District Attorney’s Drug Task Force.

McIntire plead guilty Thursday morning to a lesser misdemeanor charge of willful neglect while on duty.

In October, an indictment accused McIntire of stealing $2,300 of seized drug money in 2004 and then covering it up by staging a burglary.

On Thursday, McIntire was given a one-year deferred sentence. He was also ordered to pay back the $2,300 back to the state within sixty days. McIntire also cannot have a law enforcement job within the state of Oklahoma for the next three years.

    Paula, why don't you enlighten us all about what the facts really are since you have all the inside information on this crook. Maybe you know what happened to the money. Cause Im pretty sure he didnt give it to the Toys for Tots program or the Salvation Army. Until the whole story comes out, he committed a crime, got caught, and his buddies downtown bailed him out, that's the story that will follow him the rest of his life. Cause people in Ardmore dont let you forget nothing you do wrong, even years after an incident. People here live on gossip and other people's bad drama.

    I heard that McIntire was worried to death about having to share a cell with some of those guys he did help but in jail. And they were waiting on him! He's lucky he had friends in the court system to bail him out of this one!

    So he took a plea bargain.. which means he admitted his guilt for a lesser sentence, waving his right for a trial to avoid extensive punishment and jail time for being proved guilty by jurors! Its not an issue of what story is right, whats right is that he stole 2300 dollars and got caught, and no telling how much he didnt get charged for prior to this and during his time with the DEA.

    I have known Kevin and his family long enough to know he is NOT guilty of theft. He is a kind, compassionate, Christian man with extremely high morals. He did not plead guilty to theft because he stole nothing. He plead guilty to neglect of duties. Those who are quick to judge are simply ill-informed by cut throat media out for the best front page story. I only pray that those who have been so hateful, hurtful and judgemental never have something like this happen to someone they love and care about. It's so cruel to the individual and their families to have to read comments like some of these, to get the snide, behind-the-back comments and the side-way glances and glares. Kevin, keep your head up and know that those of us who truly know you are the ones who truly love you and believe in you. You are a fine, Christian man. God's going to bless you for enduring this trial and for remaining professional, humble and courageous throughout it.
