LOVE COUNTY, Okla. -- A son of a former Love County Sheriff is being accused of taking part in a horse racing gambling ring in July 2007.
The Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office says 35-year-old John Clower Liddell is facing charges of racketeering and commercial gambling conspiracy charges.
Liddell is the son of former Love County Sheriff Wesley Liddell. The Attorney General’s Office say that Liddell was not present during the July 26 raid, but investigators say they have evidence indicating that Liddell had taken part in illegal activities at the Red River Playgrounds Racetrack.
Liddell’s preliminary hearing is set for March 27.
