Member of OK Indian tribe guilty in Creek Casino case

Posted: Updated:
WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) -

Guilty! An Elmore County district judge has convicted Wayland Gray of Oklahoma.

Gray is a member of the Muskogee Indian tribe, and earlier this year Mr. Gray along with a few others walked onto the Poarch Creek Indians casino property in Wetumpka uninvited.

The Muskogee tribal members accuse the Creeks of desecrating what they consider 'scared' burial grounds where the Creeks are expanding their casino.

District Judge Glen Goggans found Gray guilty of 'criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.' Judge Goggans initially sentenced Gray to 120 days in the county jail but suspended that sentence and put him on two years probation, ordered Gray to pay a $350 fine and to stay away from the Creeks' property.

WSFA 12 News has learned Gray plans to appeal.
