A candidate for the Oklahoma Senate was released from jail last week after satisfying a $1,796 city fine.
Ada resident Fred E. Ray Smith was being held in the Pontotoc County Justice Center on outstanding city and county warrants. The warrants alleged that he had failed to pay a $1,796 city fine as well as $2,921 in child support.
City Judge Jim Kemp had previously ordered Smith to either pay the city fine or sit it out in jail, reducing the fine by $50 for each day served.
Smith remained in jail until the city debt was satisfied, and the child support payment was reduced to approximately $922, Sheriff John Christian said Monday. Smith was released from the jail Aug. 13 on a recognizance bond.
