Two Victory Christian Center workers charged with failing to report child abuse have filed a second motion to dismiss the charges.

The attorney for John and Charica Daugherty filed the new motion on November 2nd, alleging the charges against the couple should be dropped either because of a lack of evidence or because the evidence as it is known has either been disproved or is outright false.

The state filed a strongly worded response to the original motion to dismiss yesterday; the motion filed by the defendants today calls that response: “hyperbole, self-righteous indignation, and misrepresentations by the Tulsa County’s “justice” office.”

The motion alleges the defendants are “targets of a political smear campaign rather than a criminal prosecution.” They also claim the mother of one of the alleged victims, the grandmother of another alleged victim and a TPD officer should also be charged because they had access to the same information as the Daughertys.

The motion says the charges must be dismissed because the timeline and facts presented by the state can be contradicted by witnesses and evidence.

A hearing is expected for November 19th.

I had just recently returned to Tulsa on February 2010 from Tyler, Texas. I was homeless and sleeping on the stairway at St. John's Hospital on 21st & Utica. It was 4:30am when suddenly a personage stood before me. It was Billy Joe Daugherty. He stood before me dressed in a white robe that was stained. His right eye was popped out and hanging out of it's socket. I was shocked and in awe. As he stood before me he said; " David, please forgive me for hurting you. We all have sin in us, we all have done wickedness. It is by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved. We are saved by grace through faith and not of yourself it is a gift of God." Billy Joe said; "Take your eyes off me and put them on JESUS".Then he vanished. I was assured by this visitation that faith in God's grace is what saves us all.

It is obvious that this case has turned into a "RELIGIOUS PROFILING AND TARGETING" and "JUDICIAL RACKETEERING" against John and Charica Daugherty. The charge of Failure to Report Child Abuse is FRAUDULENT and RACKETED in nature by a Corrupted Enforcement and a Corrupted Judicial Court seeking to discredit Victory Christian Center. Furthermore the parading of John and Charica Daugherty in the News Media is a crime in itself in the nature of Libel, Slander and Defamation. It appears that there are inconsistencies of the FACTS and that these half truths are being used to attack the Daugherty's. I find it strange and rare that a "rape" would occur in a "stairway". There has had to be other actions involved by the victim herself. I see John and Charica plus the others innocent of the crime that has been FRAUDULENTLY charged of Failure to Report Child Abuse.

aleman they kicked this moneychangers church off at T.L. Osborn :-) Ever heard of that before? Osborn was a missionary who had a museum on 51st and Rockford. Still not too sure what part of Christianity is involved in the display of shrunken heads.

A fair trial will prove Either guilt or innocence. Step on up in the box put your right hand on the holy bible and swear to tell the truth so help you god. What are you afraid of brother. I bet you're ascared that My God won't release you from the payment for your sin!!! (if you harm a single hair) Welcome to the pretty part of he'll burn your assets and cleanse a scourge like you from the face of this earth. I know which god I'm working with. Your actions show that your false god sanctioning you in the money changers church may not give you all the protection you need. You have no need to hide if you're innocent. Hold still it won't hurt long..

Why is Sharon Daugherty not also charged? Reports indicate her son and daughter-in-law confessed to her very early on, admitted they knew they should have come forward earlier, and that they "dropped the ball". If these facts prove true, she is just as guilty as they are and should be prosecuted for her failure to report the matter to authorities immediately upon being advised. At the very least, she should step down during the investigation. Again, if the facts are true, the behavior of the Daugherty family in relation to this crime is shameful and certainly does not reflect genuine Christian values.
