DA Steidley seeks second term



Her experience as a prosecutor, drug court coordinator, attorney in private practice, college teacher, mother of three, and school volunteer have served us well.
Steidley is a cum laude graduate of the Oklahoma City University School of Law, where she met her husband, Larry, during her first year.
They returned to his home town of Claremore, where she joined the District Attorney’s office in 1999, handling Rogers County misdemeanor, felony, and juvenile cases.
In April 2003, she and Larry formed the Steidley Law Firm in Claremore, where she handled criminal defense, deprived and delinquent juvenile cases, and guardian ad litem appointments to domestic and guardianship cases. She has always had a special place in her heart for those who need an advocate for justice.
She has been Drug Court Coordinator for Mayes and Craig counties. The court works to rehabilitate certain offenders through intense treatment and supervision.
She also served as a part-time adjunct professor at both Rogers State University and Northeastern State University, teaching courses in Torts and Litigation, Criminal Law II and Criminal Evidence.
The Steidley family includes children Nathan, 14; Matthew, 10; and Emily, 7. They reside in Verdigris and the children attend Verdigris Schools. 
She looks forward to working hard for the people of Rogers, Mayes and Craig Counties for another four years.
