Woodward man to serve more than 13 years in federal prison for car jacking

Oklahoma City_Press Release - Department of Justice - John C. Richter, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma, announced today that Michael Casey Conrad, 24, from Woodward, Oklahoma, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti to serve 162 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for car jacking an SUV from a woman whose six-month-old child was sleeping in the back seat.

 On July 14, 2007, a woman stopped to ask for directions at a convenience store at 2040 N.W. 10th in Oklahoma City.  After she stepped out of her SUV, Conrad jumped in and began to drive away.  She tried to stop him by grabbing the steering wheel with one hand and using her other hand to grab his arm.  The woman pleaded with Conrad not to take her car and told him her baby was in the back seat of the vehicle.  Conrad struck the woman and dragged her as she tried to hold onto the steering wheel.  Eventually the woman was forced to let go and Conrad drove away.  The victim ran back into the convenience store to get help.  One customer left the store and got into his own vehicle and followed Conrad. Conrad later abandoned the stolen SUV with the baby inside.  Based upon assistance from the customer, the Oklahoma City Police arrested Conrad within 45 minutes of the car-jacking.  The six-month-old child was found unharmed in the vehicle.

Conrad pled guilty to car-jacking in October 2007. A related case is pending in Oklahoma County District Court.

The case is a result of an investigation by the Oklahoma City Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Susanna Voegeli and Special Assistant United States Attorney Lori Hines.
