The bond was revoked for a Guthrie man Friday after the state said he violated its bond restrictions.

DISTRICT LOG IN, Okla. (KFOR) – The bond was revoked for a Guthrie man Friday after the state said he violated its bond restrictions.

Daniel Triplett, who is accused of killing Brent Mack and burying him in a septic tank in September 2021, is currently in custody following a hearing Friday afternoon.

The hearing is short – it can be as long as 20-30 minutes.

The state brought in two witnesses to prove Triplett violated its bond restrictions. The defense argued that the breach was not serious, but the judge ordered his bail to be revoked.

Garland Pruitt told the NAACP: “He’s guilty, he’s still guilty, he’s always going to be guilty and whatever way you offend that, he needs to be exactly where he is,” Garland Pruitt speak.

The recall is a reversal of the Logan County District Judge Dec decision to grant Triplett a $500,000 bond.

Brendon Mack, son of Brent Mack, said: “This man is out in the street. “He shouldn’t have been on the street in the first place.”

Triplett’s bondage restricted him from going to attorney appointments, medical care, and court hearings.

However, prosecutors argued that he violated that by stopping at a gas station on the way to a meeting with his lawyer and Waffle House on the way back.

He also stopped at a bank in Guthrie, according to a banker and witness, who said she was surprised to see him there.

Triplett’s probation officer, who is also a witness, said a GPS tracking device confirmed he had been to places where he was not authorized by the court to go.

The Mack family’s attorney Damario Solomon Simmons said: “We are obviously very, very pleased that Mr Triplett is where he should be and where he should be.

Family attorneys also contest the civil side of the matter.

Solomon Simmons said: “He was assigned a relationship based on a favor of who he was, but he was so arrogant that he couldn’t abide by those rules.

The defense argued that stopping for gas and food was a minor offense, adding that he only stopped at Waffle House for about two minutes on the court-approved route.

They admitted the bank’s outage was inexplicable but they denied alternatives to call his bonds.

Troy Franklin-Smith, brother of Brent Mack, said: “I am so proud now that justice is being done.

“We will not rest until justice is done and here we are now,” said Terrell Mack, son of Brent Mack. “Let the ball bounce and get all the justice we deserve.”
