More Information

The plans for the current Payne County jail were started in 2005, for which seventeen million was set aside. The jail was finished in the fall of 2008. There were some renovations made in 2010. It can hold 300 inmates. The Sheriff that had it built was Carl Hiner, who had served that role for 22 years. He started with the department in 1977 as a jailer. The previous jail was in the basement of the courthouse and had been built in 1967.

On December 8, 1911, Deputy Sheriff Shack Palmer found a suspect in the shooting of two men. During the arrest, he was shot. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died on December 10. The suspect was later apprehended.

In the 1910s, Stillwater was known for the oil boom that occurred. At the same time, the city kept the jail busy with crime and corruption that came from the new found wealth. Some of it was as simple as prostitution, while some were more complicated bribery of city and county officials.

In June of 1958, Cushing Police Detective George Bledsoe was tried for the murder of two buglers. The previous year, the city had been dealing with multiple break ins. The police department was told a downtown drug store was to be next. Bledsoe was in the building, as the two broke in. The men were shot in the ensuing incident. Bledsoe was arrested for murder. There had been rumors that a member of law enforcement was involved with the two and the killing was said to be so Bledsoe could cover his involvement up. The wife of one of the two men claimed she saw her husband give Bledsoe money. He was acquitted of both murders. He retired and moved to Florida after the trial.

On July 30, 1968, Deputy Sheriff Jerry Beall and Cushing Police Chief Oswell Rowden were transporting two prisoners to the jail. One climbed into the front seat and started fighting with the two members of law enforcement. The car wrecked in the fight. Both cops were killed. The man was convicted of murder and paroled in the 1970s.
