Jealousy Reason Behind Sand Springs Windshield Bashing

Thursday, February 27th 2014, 11:04 pm

A Sand Springs teenager admitted to hiring a friend to beat in a classmate's windshield. Last week, a 16-year-old girl's windshield was smashed in broad daylight in the Charles Page High School parking lot.

Two people have confessed, but no arrests will be made. By law, police said in this case, the suspects can only be ticketed for the crime. Its a crime detectives said was fueled by jealousy.

The victim's mother, Tresa Johnson, said, "This goes way behind jealousy, this goes to a level I can't even imagine."

It's a strange twist.

"Ten dollars caused a whole lot of trouble," Johnson said.

That was the going rate that police say left Tresa Johnson's 16-year-old daughter's windshield shattered.

"The fact that she hired someone to do it was just amazing to me," Johnson said. "The thought process that it took for something like that to be done was shocking."

It was one week ago Thursday when Johnson's daughter, Mykayla, walked out of school to find the damage. Mykayla, a National Honor Society student and Sunday school teacher, said she's never had an enemy until just recently.

Deputy Police Chief Mike Carter said Mykayla's boyfriend's ex-girlfriend was upset the two were dating.

"I think when you get passions involved in kids in school, and actually young adults, they can do things that don't make sense later. But in this case that's what they decided to do," Carter said.

Mykayla and her mom initially thought the ex-girlfriend was the culprit, and while police said she was behind the crime, she didn't swing the hammer. Instead, police said she paid 22-year-old Kenneth Kelley to follow Mykayla and smash in her windshield when no one was looking.

Kelley confessed and apologized one day after our story. Johnson believes that's the only reason he apologized.

"He felt that he had done something really horrible to somebody that was a good person and came forward, and the only reason he did that was because of your news story," Johnson said.

Police said several days later, 18-year-old Deserae Hamilton, a Charles Page High School senior, admitted to hiring Kelley to do her dirty work.

Johnson has filed a protective order against the girl but said her daughter will forever be looking over her shoulder.

"Not only trouble, caused a whole lot of hurt and fear, and it will now affect them for the rest of their life for ten dollars and some anger," Johnson said.

The superintendent said the student involved has been suspended for 45 days.

Police said if the vandalism had cost $25,000 or more, the two suspects would have been charged with a felony. They will go to municipal court now and face up to a $250 fine.
