VALORY/STARSTRUCK star REBA McENTIRE is among the supporters asking a federal judge to show leniency on a KIOWA, OK businessman being sentenced for a federal conspiracy charge.
REBA was one of 46 people who wrote a letter or affidavit to U.S. District Judge RONALD WHITE on behalf of STEVE PHIPPS, who plead guilty to the charge in 2007 and could now face up to five years in prison.
REBA grew up with PHIPPS in Southeast OKLAHOMA, and his son is currently completing an internship at STARSTRUCK in NASHVILLE.
She writes that PHIPPS kept her informed about members of their class or other people in the KIOWA community who have had medical or other problems. She also praises him for his work with KIOWA PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
