(Stillwater, Okla.) — Former Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Dan Gwin, who was charged with unauthorized use of a Stillwater man’s motorcycle last summer, has been given a 30-day jail term on a reduced charge of misdemeanor joyriding, court records show.

Payne County Sheriff’s Captain Kevin Woodward said this week that Gwin would not serve his sentence in the Payne County Jail, but instead be taken to an out-of-county facility where he would not be known.

After the felony charge was reduced by the prosecution to misdemeanor joyriding last week, Gwin, 50, of Stillwater, pleaded guilty before Special District Judge Robert Hert, who ordered him to pay the cost of his 30-day incarceration, court records show.

Gwin had been arrested at a car wash on South Main Street in Stillwater on July 7, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. — two and one-half hours after a man reported his 2006 Harley Davidson RSI motorcycle was stolen in Stillwater, according to an affidavit by Stillwater Police Officer Jared Noles.

The motorcycle owner “was in contact with Daniel Gwin via phone and found Daniel Gwin did in fact have unlawful possession of the motorcycle and that it was located in Cushing,” the affidavit alleged.

When Gwin was later contacted at the Orange Pride car wash in Stillwater, “Daniel Gwin was found in possession of the stolen 2006 Harley Davidson motorcyce,” the affidavit alleged. “I found the keys to the motorcycle located in Daniel Gwin’s right front pocket,” Noles alleged in his affidavit.

Gwin admitted that he took the motorcycle without permission, but did intend on returning it prior to the owner returning home, the affidavit alleged.

Three months before that alleged incident, Gwin — who had admitted embezzling from P&K Equipment while he was a sales representative for the John Deere dealer in Stillwater in 2012 — was ordered to pay $5,033.87 in restitution as a condition of probation.

As part of a plea bargain with the prosecution for a three-year deferred sentence in his 2012 embezzlement case, Gwin was ordered by Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler to perform 100 hours of community service within one year.

Gwin reportedly worked for the Payne County Sheriff’s Office for about 15 years in all as a deputy. He was last employed at the office by Sheriff R.B. Hauf from Jan. 5, 2009, until Sept. 30, 2011, when he resigned, the sheriff’s captain said.
