(Stillwater) — A former Cushing man who is currently on probation for stabbing a Drumright man at a Cushing apartment complex parking lot, has been jailed on $31,000 total bail following his weekend arrest on gun and marijuana possession charges in Stillwater.
    Alec Wayne Harper, 22, whose last known address was in Stillwater, could receive as much as 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted of the felony charges filed Monday.
    Harper has been charged with possessing a .22-caliber revolver on April 18 in Stillwater, after having felony convictions for the 2005 stabbing and also a 2005 burglary. He also has been charged with felony marijuana possession on April 18 in Stillwater.
    Harper was arraigned Monday on those charges and notified that the District Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to revoke the suspended sentences he was given in 2007 in the stabbing and burglary.
    Harper was originally charged with assault and battery with force likely to produce death in the stabbing, but he pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of aggravated assault and battery.
    His victim, Justin Leon Ramsey, then 21, was stabbed twice in his mid-section during a fight shortly before 10 p.m. July 13, 2005, in the parking lot of the Fountain Bleau apartments at 1428 S. Little in Cushing, an affidavit said.
    Ramsey had a stab wound in his stomach area and another stab wound in his left side, a police affiavit said.
    He required immediate surgery at Cushing Regional Hospital where he was taken by private vehicle shortly after the assault, according to then- Deputy Cushing Police Chief Terry Brannon, who now is the police chief.
    Harper, then 18 and living in the apartment complex, was arrested in the Fontain Bleau parking lot, Brannon said.
    About two months before being charged with stabbing Ramsey, Harper was charged with breaking into a home north of Cushing by kicking in the front door on May 17, 2005. He pleaded no contest to that charge in 2007.
    Harper was originally given a three-year deferred sentence on both those felonies —  except for one year in the Payne County Jail, with credit for the year which he had served while being held on $200,000 bail.
    Harper was also ordered to pay $6,722 restitution for the stabbing victim’s injuries, complete all the requirements in a Youthful Offender Accountability Plan, obtain his GED, complete a substance program, and pay $1,649 restitituion for the burglary victim’s loss, court records show.
    Seven months later in November 2007 following his arrest on a marijuana possession charge, District Judge Donald Worthington ruled that Harper had violated probation and changed his sentence to two concurent three-year suspended sentences except 30 days in jail.
    Currently, the Payne County District Attorney’s Office is seeking to revoke those probationary sentences.
    Oklahoma Department of Corrections Probation and Parole Officer Angela Jordan has recommended that Harper be sent to prison.
