In a story printed in Friday’s edition of the Claremore Daily Progress, Sue Ann Stimson was named as being stopped by officers on Feb. 6, 2003, when officers were searching for information regarding a methamphetamine lab.
Sue Ann Stimson had no ties to the case, according to District Attorney Gene Haynes.
Sue Ann Stimson was originally named in the probably cause affidavit prepared by an officer. However, during testimony at a preliminary hearing, Haynes said the officer testified that the name Sue Ann Stimson was the name the vehicle was registered in, and that Sherrie Renee Stimson was actually driving the vehicle.
Sherrie Renee Stimson is the wife of Lynde Dwight Stimson.
Lynde Dwight Stimson pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a meth lab operation near a Verdigris daycare facility. Last week, his 45-year, $50,000 fine sentence was reduced to 10 years, with a majority of that suspended. Judge Dynda Post ordered him discharged from prison. He had served 15 months.
