A number of inmates have left Garvin County’s jail over the last few months to begin prison terms or other sentences recently handed down in courts here.

One of them is 29-year-old Mohamed Mostafa Kamel Abdelrahman of Elmore City.

Just last week Abdelrahman was in a Garvin County District courtroom for a preliminary hearing that ultimately was pushed back to late July.

Abdelrahman is facing multiple criminal accusations of using a baseball bat to brutally beat his wife and a scolding hot blade of a machete to torture their five-year-old child during an incident in February.

In a separate charge Abdelrahman is also accused in shooting case.

With his newest round of charges Abdelrahman was given a 35-year prison prison in March after a deferred sentence was given to him for a 2019 child neglect case.

Other inmates transported from the jail here include:

• Charles Michael Sanders, 48, of Pauls Valley was sentenced in October 2019 to a 12-year prison term for trafficking methamphetamine.

Earlier this month Sanders filed a request for post-conviction relief based on his claim his defense attorney, appointed the day before a plea hearing, “didn’t follow my wishes by asking for a postponement to investigate my case.”

Sanders also claims there was “no opportunity to have the substance weighed,” and his case falls under the McGirt ruling on Native American jurisdiction because his arrest took place at a Chickasaw Nation casino in Pauls Valley.

• Freddie Joe Thomas Jr., 48, of Pauls Valley was charged with burglary and weapons charges in September 2019.
