But Thursday the OSBI began a forensic search of Ezell's mobile device & found some odd tracks. He browser history had been deleted but special equipment of the bureau enabled them to recover data which ultimately incriminated her. They confronted her on Friday and she eventually 'cracked' and confessed.
We're not sure yet, if the 9 board members were aware of the supposed threats and whether it outraged them toward the 788 proponents. If so, it may have tainted the votes cast by the members at the July 10th monthly meeting.
Here are the threats that Julie Ezell composed in her plot.
The first email, sent at 2 a.m. on a Sunday, reads:
“If the government thinks they can take our rights away and erase our laws. I [sic] have news for you. We can show up with force to stop it. We will stop YOU and you’re [sic] greed. Anyway it takes to end your evil and protect what is ours. We will watch you.”
The same account sent another email to Ezell later in the day reading:
"Your [sic] all the same. Protect your cronies and trample everyone you can find. These laws are a laughing stalk. We will expose your corruption and evil. We would hate to hurt [you]. You will hear us. We are just beginning.”
Later emails contained Ezell's home address and descriptions of her vehicles.
Ezell's attorney is Ed Blau.
“We are aware of the charges filed today by the Oklahoma County District Attorney. Julie Ezell has worked as a loyal and dedicated public servant her entire career as a lawyer. These charges do not reflect who she is as a person, nor do they reflect the type of advocate she has been for the people of the State of Oklahoma. These allegations will be answered, and additional relevant information will be provided by us at the appropriate time.” Blau said in a statement.
