(Stillwater, Okla.) — A homeless woman remains jailed on $150,000 bail on charges of trying to drive a car into Stillwater Police Officer Josh Carson, attempting to elude Stillwater Police Officer Newly McSpadden at 14th and Main Street, and failing to stop at a stop sign and crashing into another vehicle while driving without a license, all on Halloween.
If convicted of all of her charges filed Monday on which she is scheduled to appear before a judge this afternoon, Christian Danielle Marker, 25, could be incarcerated for 15 years plus one month and fined $15,300, court records show.
At the time of her latest arrest, Marker was free on a personal recognizance bond on a felony charge of possessing a loaded pistol in Stillwater while on probation for having methamphetamine in 2016, court records show.
In her gun charge, Marker was arrested at 100 S. Main Street at 11:14 p.m. on March 1 during a traffic stop in which she began frantically reaching to her left and under her while sitting in the back seat next to a known criminal gang member with a reputation for carrying firearms, a police affidavit alleged.
A small black handgun that was magazine and chamber-loaded was found under the front seat by Stillwater Police Officer Chance Whiteley, who located an additional gun under the back seat, the affidavit alleged.
Marker has been ordered to appear before a judge on Nov. 13 on that gun charge, as well as on a felony methamphetamine possession charge stemming from her Oct. 2, 2016, arrest by Stillwater Police Officer John Stanbery in which she was “shooting up” in the back seat of a car in a parking lot on E. 6th Street, court records show.
When Marker pleaded guilty to that charge in 2017, she was placed on probation for five years under a deferred sentence with an order to undergo random drug tests, comply with the methamphetamine registry, have a substance abuse evaluation, perform any recommended follow-up treatment, work full-time or be a student, do 50 hours of community service and pay $1,660 in assessments, court records show.
