In April, Honeycutt pleaded “not guilty” to charges of embezzlement she has been facing since September of last year.

On July 11, 2018, breaking news was released by The Gayly about OKC Pride appearing to have mishandled funds. Suspicions of the mishandling of funds were brought to the surface by then OKC Pride board members. At the time, Honeycutt was the only person using the bank account.

However, Honeycutt did not face Judge Coleman in her courtroom today. Her attorney, David Slane, coordinated with the ADA, Kirk Martin, about how they could “figure out the money.”

After discussing with ADA Martin, Slane told The Gayly, “Her case got continued to August 26 to figure out money.”

Slane is a criminal defense attorney in Oklahoma City who, in April, told The Gayly, “We really just want to get your [OKC Pride] money back. I think that would be the best thing. The problem is this girl [Honeycutt] has been in a lot of trouble in the past, and it’s all public record.”

He also said at that time that he “hated that we are on opposite sides,” and that Honeycutt was “going to have to sell her house or her parents will get the money.”

Editor's note: OKC Pride, Inc. and the Oklahoma City Pride Alliance, who organized Pride in OKC for 2019, are two different organizations. After this scandal, they merged, but this information is in no way related to the OKC Pride Alliance or any members of that organization.
