A bail agent who fatally shot a client in her office was acquitted by a jury.

Stillwater, OK – A jury acquitted a bail bond agent who fatally shot a client in her office in August (video below).

On Thursday, the jury in the trial of Chastity Carey watched the video of her shooting and killing Brandon Williams when he refused to be taken into custody.

The deliberated for a brief period on Friday, and returned a verdict of not guilty, according to the Stillwater News Press.

The shooting occurred shortly before 11:45 a.m. on Aug. 9, 2017, at Carey’s Signature Bail Bonds office at Town Center in the 100 block of West Seventh Avenue.

Carey, 42, had posted a $35,000 bond for Williams just nine days before the shooting, the Stillwater News Press reported.

Williams had been arrested on July 27, 2017, and charged with the burglaries of three areas restaurants.

Her son had set up a GoPro video camera to record her meeting with the 38-year-old Williams.

In the video, things appeared to be going smoothly until Carey got up from her desk to shut and lock the office door.

At that point, the video showed her son took handcuffs to her to lock up Williams, and Williams got upset.

He began to collect his belongings as if to leave.

Carey told him several times to put his hands behind his back.

“Don’t put your hands on me! Why? What are you doing this to me for?” Williams asked, as he scrambled to get away from Carey.

He made his way behind the desk, off camera, and Carey went after him, stopping to reach into her desk drawer and retrieve her gun, the video showed.

She turned and shot Williams, who could not be seen in the video.

“Mom, you just shot him,” her son said, sounding and looking shocked.

“I did,” Carey said. And then she called 911, and told dispatchers she had just shot a man, The Ada News reported.

“Carey told officers she had called Williams to her office with the intent of taking him into custody to revoke his bond and deliver him back to the Payne County Sheriff’s Office,” Stillwater Police Captain Kyle Gibbs wrote in a press release.

“A witness was present during the meeting between Carey and Williams. Carey told investigators a fight broke out between her and Williams during the meeting. She indicated she shot Williams with a gun she had in her desk in self-defense during the struggle,” Capt. Gibbs wrote.

He told The Ada News police had arrested the bail bond agent because “Witness statements as well as evidence found at the scene, including video evidence, contradict Carey’s version of the event.”

“The investigators’ findings indicate that the shooting was not a justifiable act of self-defense,” Capt. Gibbs said.

The jury disagreed and acquitted her after they watched the video.

At the trial, Carey claimed that she shot when Williams grabbed her gun.

After you watch the video below, do you think that the shooting was justified? We'd like to hear from you. Please let us know in the comments.

This is the best example unjustifiable homicide I have seen in a while, but hey, jury's tell us what to do.

I don't know what the laws are in that state regarding bond agents but this does not look justified to me.

If he was just trying to get out the window, it doesn’t seem justified. If he grabbed the gun as she said then I can see how the jury reached their verdict. It’s hard to say though because her hands and the gun are off camera. Going by the reaction of the son though....wow!

Was she playing too many violent video games?

This is cut and dry, black and white, cold blooded homicide. Burglar or not, no one deserves to be assassinated like this. These jurists are assholes and disgusting individuals.

What genius decided to charge her with First-degree murder? SMH! So were the jury supposed to believe that she had her son set up his GoPro camera so that he could capture her committing first degree murder?

Btw, see people, it happens to white folks too.

Well, the jury was wrong. This was not self defense. She killed that man unjustifiable. If I was the family of that man, I'd be going after her with one heck of a Law suit.

WHAT THE F?
He was lower and exiting, he never made a move toward her, let a lone touch the gun. Man down.

That's such an ignorant statement. This shooting was definitely not justifiable and, to say "if he only had obeyed" does not give her the right to shoot him as he was trying to get away. If she knew he needed to be arrested, she should've coordinated with the local law enforcement to come in and get him, after he showed up. Just plain murder.

Been a gun owner my entire life. Big-time believer in 2nd Amendment and my right to defend self and family, would not hesitate to use firearm if warranted.

This was a Bull Shit shoot. She murdered the man.

so the fact that she attacked him first by kicking him and that he was trying to escape justifies the killing? She kicked him while he was calmly picking up his stuff to leave. Carey was the aggressor by kicking him as he was standing still. At that point he was the one that was in self defense mode, not her. Instead of fighting he clearly tries to run away from at that point a violent aggressor. And so the violent aggressor that has already kicked him calmly goes to her gun drawer and then turns around to shoot him in the back as he is going out the window.

Is it a justified killing because the guy was a criminal? A criminal that was doing nothing wrong at that time than trying to escape a violent attacker?

I completely agree. She was the only violent and aggressive one. She kicked him and then he tried to escape. And then we are supposed to believe that it was in self defense as she calmly goes and gets her gun from the drawer?

I hope this goes to appeals because it was clearly a homicide if not murder.

She even attacked him first when she kicked him back. If anything, he would have been justified in self defense if he did attack her. You can't be the aggressor that hits first and claim self defense. SMH

You see her dead looking eyes in the mugshot. A dead giveaway of a sociopath. A real dumb jury to let this monster go free. They did a real disservice to society since she is a clear danger to the public. She derserved punishment for clearly murdering the man in cold blood. What a stupid jury. I'm sure the average IQ on the jury was about 70.

One less SLOB in the world. I would’ve shot him too...

Wow! You would be a murderer as well, NinaG! Majority rules except with this dumb downed jury.😳🙄 He was on the 3rd floor and he wasn’t going no where. She could of held him at gunpoint or even fired a warning shot if she really wanted to apprehend him but she didn’t because she had murder in her heart. How do I know this fact because the man hate’n vixen didn’t have police there to assist her pre meditated arrest turn to murder. Would you feel the same if it was your son, NinaG? Hell, NO!

Good point. If the jury only had the choice of first degree murder (as in she planned to kill him before he arrived) or not guilty, I can see reason in their choice. Had she been charged with a lesser offense or the jury had that opinion, they would have found her guilty.
