She graduated from the program and began employee training but was kicked out of the program in March 2008 after testing positive for drugs, court records state.more at http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?subjectid=12&articleid=20120909_12_0_TheOkl693342
The Oklahoma Supreme Court has been asked to review whether a private contractor charging subscription fees for online court records and allowing only a select group access to them violates the state's Open Records Act.Mike Evans, administrative director of the courts, said as a result of multiple complaints, he has asked the Supreme Court to look at the practice by state contractor KellPro. The company allows only Oklahoma Bar Association members to buy subscription access to online records in the 64 counties serviced by KellPro's ODCR court records system.In those counties, residents can access court dockets online, but only Oklahoma Bar Association members can download the accompanying documents. KellPro charges a subscription of $50 per month or $600 per year.
How can Gary keep lying to reporters? Unbelievable.
"If that occurred, the person would be fired and we would file criminal charges."
"Narconon Arrowhead CEO Gary Smith said the facility would contact authorities and press for charges against any employee caught using or possessing drugs. "Our policy is firm and there is no tolerance," Smith said. "If that occurred, the person would be fired and we would file criminal charges." "Is there any way to check local police records to see if any criminal charges have ever been filed for NN Arrowhead employee? Or if NN Arrowhead has ever reported anything to local police (other than to complain about protestors).
Maybe someone knows how to check Police records for records of Narconon filing charges against ex-employees. I agree with you that it seems it should be possible to check Gary's if/then statement:
I would ask the ex-pres of Narconon Arrowhead about this. There is a LOT more to this story than is being published by the local media and i mean A LOT!
A few things stood out for me in Smith's response to the Tulsa World:1) He absolutely knows that staff have been caught using drugs and have been fired (though some just do an "ethics cycle"), and I would be willing to bet there IS documentation internally about one or more staff members who gave alcohol and/or drugs to a student or multiple students. This I have no specific information of, but I'm sure someone who has left does.2) He absolutely knows there have been staff who have had inappropriate (criminal) sexual contact with students, as well with trainees, who were recent graduates of the program.3) He absolutely knows that trainees do in fact have close contact with students, as it is part of their mandatory training to work in the withdrawal area. I'm sure that the personnel files (staff ethics files) show that the majority of cases of drug use and sexual contact with students has involved the trainees. I bet Judge Bland saw this and was appalled. This would be as revealing, if not more, than some of the documents released in the Desmond case.How can Gary keep lying to reporters? Unbelievable.
I'm thinking if they even think about pulling the old, "They must have been misplaced.", game this time, the judge will come down on them like an "Acme" anvil on 'Coyote' in an old WB cartoon.

These people specialize in delay, derail, distract, deny.
