    A federal judge has placed the man at the center of the John Grisham book 'The Innocent Man' on the path to potential freedom. Karl Fontenot’s story was also made into a Netflix documentary series. U.S. District Judge James Payne, of Muskogee, ruled there is reasonable doubt that Fontenot should have been convicted in 1988 in the kidnapping and killing of Ada convenience store clerk Denice Haraway in 1984.  Judge Payne's opinion discusses alleged misconduct by police, investigators and prosecutors. Fontenot and co-defendant Tommy Ward were convicted in Haraway's murder in part due to a recording of them talking about dreams they had about her murder.
  • Fire investigators say the cause of a house fire in Broken Arrow was electrical.  The fire was reported just after 11 p.m. Thursday near 100 North Hickory.  We're told five people were inside the house when a tree limb fell, striking the electric box on the outside of the house.  There were no injuries.
  • A judge has sentenced an Oklahoma workman to life in prison for hiding cameras in homes to capture images of girls. Ryan Aaron Alden pleaded guilty in June to 28 felonies, including creating child pornography and possession of obscene material of minors.  Oklahoma County District Judge Amy Palumbo said during sentencing Wednesday that she would have ordered Alden castrated if the law allowed. The 39-year-old was also sentenced to nearly 150 years in prison.  Prosecutors say Alden hid cameras in the bedrooms, bathrooms and closets of four Oklahoma homes where he did electrical work. Police said they found child pornography on Alden's five computers and two phones.  The Oklahoman reports that Alden was also accused of secretly taking photos of girls in gyms, schools and mall changing rooms.
  • The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office fires a jail guard who claims to have smuggled guns and knives into the jail.

We're told the jail guard was fired because of a separate issue. His name has not been released because no charges have been filed.
  • A state representative from Broken Arrow made several calls to high-profile friends, as well as the Tulsa County Sheriff and Broken Arrow police chief, as he was waiting to be transported from the Broken Arrow detention facility to the county jail. The arrest occurred August 2nd, after a 911 call came in from a citizen who reportedly said a vehicle was swerving over the center line. [A recording of a call from Rep. Dean Davis to Rep. T. J. Marti NOTE: private phone numbers were edited out] BAPD officers responded, found the vehicle, and made contact with Dean Davis, the representative for Oklahoma District 98. According to the arrest report, Davis told officers several times they should call their chief - but in phone calls to fellow lawmakers T.J. Marti and Ross Ford, he told them he called Chief Brandon Berryhill as he was being pulled over. The arrest report says he refused to take a breath test for alcohol after failing several field sobriety tests. Davis tells Marti and Ford he wanted them to give him a blood test instead. In the call to Marti, Davis can be heard saying “this is not going to help Broken Arrow at all, because they just made an enemy. And that's not good at all, you know that.” Davis is due in court for arraignment on charges of DUI second offense, speeding, and obstructing an officer on September 23rd.

'The devastation that you caused these families may never be known. The 39-year-old was also sentenced to nearly 150 years in prison. Police said they found child pornography on Alden's five computers and two phones.
