LGBT License Plate Advocate Facing Charge For Not Having Bail Bondsman License
OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Oklahoma - A man who gained attention across the state for suing the Oklahoma Tax Commission over its denial for a pro-LGBT license plate is now dealing with new trouble.
The Oklahoma County District Attorney is charging John Keefe with the crime filed Friday. The details are complicated. Edmond Police said so, and that is what News 9 gathered when we visited C and K Bail Bonds.
Court documents state John Patrick Keefe was charged with not having a bail bondsman license.
News 9 interviewed him when he wanted to put a personalized plate on his car to show his support for the lesbian, gay, transgender and bi-sexual community, but the state told him no.
This time around, his name popped up again after being charged for representing himself as a bail enforcer without a license. It's a felony crime, but what led up to it is what's tricky.
Court records state it started at this Starbucks in Edmond where a woman claimed Keefe "forced her to perform oral sex on him in exchange for her not being taken to the Oklahoma County Jail."
That woman was on a bond written by C and K Bail Bonds where up until about two weeks we're told Keefe was a bondsman. He wasn't there when we showed up looking for him, but he's not in jail yet either.
Keefe was only charged for not having a license and not with any sex crimes. Police said there wasn't enough evidence to prove those allegations.
