Tulsa, OK – Thomas Scott Woodward, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma,
announces the results of the May 2010 Federal Grand Jury.
The following named individuals have been charged with a federal crime or crimes by the
return of an indictment by the Grand Jury. The return of an indictment is a method of

a reasonable doubt to overcome the defendant's presumption of innocence.

Pryor. The agreement required that Hawkes was to repay a portion of the bank loan within
five days of a vehicle's sale to a consumer. Hawkes allegedly concealed the sale of
approximately 88 vehicles between September 2004 and October 2006 without remitting
