Area man sentenced in cattle sale case

A Wagoner man was sentenced in federal court Thursday to two years probation for disposal of mortgaged property, according to a media release.

Sherrod Hornbuckle, 35, was also ordered to pay $52,074 in restitution. Information filed in the case alleged Hornbuckle sold cattle which were “mortgaged, pledged to and held by the United States Department of Agriculture — Farm Service Agency.” The information alleges Hornbuckle sold the mortgaged cattle between about Sept. 15, 2009 to about April 4, 2010.

Hornbuckle was charged and pleaded guilty in February.

Rob Ridenour, Hornbuckle’s attorney, said his client was a man who had wanted to be a rancher, but fell on hard times during the drought.
