Convicted Rapist Released Despite New Warrants
A convicted rapist and accused pimp is allowed to walk
out of jail despite multiple warrants for his arrest. Adrian Easlick is facing charges in Oklahoma,
but on the day he was supposed to be pleading guilty, he didn’t show up to
court. That’s because he was behind bars
in Las Vegas facing several charges including kidnapping.
“They were saying that he was saying he was being a pimp up there
and doing some things you shouldn't be doing,” said Scott Adams, Easlick’s
attorney. “However those charges were
eventually dismissed, however it's my understanding the victims didn't
After Easlick’s no-show in Oklahoma the court issued a
warrant for his arrest. Prosecutors also
moved to revoke probation on other cases.
truth is the case they currently have against him is weak,” Adams said, “the
problem Adrian has is his past and his priors are coming back to haunt him.”
warrants were issued when Easlick was still behind bars in Las Vegas. However when that case was dismissed, Easlick
was allowed to walk out of jail without being detained for the Oklahoma charges.
“Really we shouldn't be looking for him right now, because when he
was picked up in Nevada on charges of kidnapping and rape the first thing they
could have done here is placed a hold on him,” said Brian Bates of
Bates documents prostitution activity in Oklahoma City and says
Easlick is well known on the streets. “He's
a really bad guy; he's been prostituting people on Robinson for a long time. There's a comical side to him. He's not really a mastermind criminal.”
Easlick’s current case revolves around accusations he tried to
recruit two undercover police officers to work as prostitutes for him. He told the women girls that work for him
make a lot of money and dine on lobster and dolphin.
It’s unclear why Easlick wasn’t detained in Las Vegas. However, when a warrant is issued the
information goes into a crime database that is searchable by law enforcement
agencies across the country. “This is a
rapist, this is a panderer, this is a pimp, this is a very dangerous person
those policies should have been followed,” Bates said.
Easlick took a bus back to Oklahoma City and according to the
sex-offender registry, he’s still not following the rules. “I believe there are nine warrants for his
arrest, he is a registered sex offender he's now registered as a delinquent
registered sex offender, meaning they don't know where he's living at, but he's
been seen on Robinson,” said Bates.
I’ve told him every time I’ve talked to him to get over to the
jail and surrender and we'll deal with these charges,” Adams told Fox 25. “He assures me he will and it doesn't happen
and quite frankly I’m getting very frustrated with him.”
