Three charged with contributing to minors

NORMAN — Three Norman residents were charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors Tuesday in Cleveland County District Court.

Maria Renee Shinabery, 24, James D. Rayford, 32, and Dustin Wayne Dunaway, 33, were charged conjointly after allowing a 13-year-old male to consume alcohol in their home.

Shinabery and Rayford were additionally charged with selling or furnishing an alcoholic beverage to the same minor. The alleged incident occurred Aug. 2, according to charges filed.

Norman police were responding to a call for service regarding a possible intoxicated minor in the northeast Norman neighborhood where the three adults lived. When an officer arrived, the front door of the residence was closed, but he could see inside through an opening of the window curtain of the living area, the affidavit said.

The officer saw Dunaway, Rayford and the minor and also heard Shinabery and what sounded like a second unseen minor. The officer also observed empty beer bottles on the coffee table, the affidavit said.

The teen opened the front door and attempted to open the storm door and walk outside, at which time the officer stopped the storm door with his hand, the document states.

“(The minor) was completely taken by surprise and reacted to seeing me by sprinting back inside the residence after slamming the primary front door to said residence closed,” the officer wrote in the affidavit.

Rayford then opened the door and granted the officer verbal consent to enter the residence. Rayford also identified the minor and said he fled through the back door, the document said.

All three residents then gave the officer verbal consent to search the residence. The officer did not contact the minor he encountered or the source of the second voice he believed to be a second minor in the residence.

When the officer asked if the minor fled because he was intoxicated, Shinabery said “yes.” Both Rayford and Shinabery said they gave the minor alcohol, which he consumed in their residence, the affidavit said.
