Update: Norman City Council Candidate Updates OSBI Record

Kelly Lynn Norman

Last week, we broke the story that Norman City Council candidate Kelly Lynn – a candidate backed by the divisive Unite Norman – failed to acknowledge on a campaign form that he once pled guilty to a felony, despite the fact that OBSI records showed he did plead guilty to a felony in the late 1990s.

In the article – which you can conveniently read here if you're a Lost Ogle Member – we took a dive into the riveting topic of Oklahoma expungement law, and came to a general conclusion that Lynn pled guilty (or possibly "no-contest") to a three-year deferred sentence, completed the terms of the sentence, and then had the case dismissed, but not fully expunged from his record.

Either way, we figured the dismissal/expungement to be a moot point because the election form simply asks whether the candidate has ever pled guilty to a felony, something it looks like Kelly clearly did.

After the story broke, Kelly apparently rushed to OSBI headquarters, and before you could toss a brick at an SUV full of teenagers, got his records updated and expunged. He then sent me a kind email asking to update the story. Here's a screenshot of our exchange:
