McGirt, 71, has served more than two decades in prison after being convicted in 1997 in Wagoner County in eastern Oklahoma of rape, lewd molestation and forcible sodomy of a 4-year-old girl. McGirt, who did not contest his guilt in the case before the justices, had appealed a 2019 ruling by a state appeals court in favor of Oklahoma.
Who continues to argue a 20-year-old case, at 71 years old, with a 1,000-year sentence, for raping a toddler, when you plead guilty to the charge?! A puppet, that’s who. People behind the scenes are using this case to wrest control of a large chunk of land away from the state of Oklahoma, and the power that will come with it. That is the real story. Who are the protagonists here? What’s their agenda? What have they been doing for the past 20 years?
