Service Dog Denied Entry
A woman with an anxiety disorder says she tried to bring her service dog into a convenience store, but she says the owner of the store kicked her dog out.
The owner of "Convenience J" in Oklahoma City called the Oklahoma City Police Department to try and resolve the issue. However, the owner of the service dog says the Police Officer sided with the owner of the convenience store and asked her and the dog to leave.
According to the Americans With Disabilities Act, service dogs are supposed to be permitted anywhere the public is allowed.
Tonight during the Fox 25 Primetime News at Nine, we'll speak with an attorney to find out more about the law regarding service dogs.
A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Police Department sent Fox 25 a statement about the incident:
"On 8-8-12, Oklahoma City Police Department's Office of Media Relations became aware of an incident involving a store manager who refused entry to a customer with an ADA certified service animal. Police were called in response to the incident. We are currently collecting information on the incident to determine if any criminal or administrative violations occurred. We understand the guidelines of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and we want to ensure that our officers understand their duties when dealing with these types of issues."

Okla. grand jury returns new charges on ex-judge
May 23, 2013 23:32 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury has returned new indictments against a former Lincoln County judge who already faces embezzlement and cattle theft charges.
The grand jury handed up the indictments Thursday against 47-year-old Craig S. Key of Chandler.
Key turned himself in last month to Lincoln County authorities who set bond at $10,000.
One indictment accuses Key of harboring a fugitive by allegedly encouraging a client facing criminal charges in Lincoln and Jefferson counties to flee the state to avoid prosecution.
Another charges Key with five counts of delivery of a forged note and accuses him of forging the name of a woman whose signature was required on escrow account checks that Key was also required to sign.
Key's attorney, Cheryl Ramsey of Stillwater, says the additional indictments are no surprise.
