Holtzclaw "DNA Accuser" Adaira Gardner Arrested for Assault and Battery


12/4/2018 - OKC, OK — Daniel Holtzclaw accuser Adaira Jasmanne Gardner has been arrested and criminally charged for assaulting a metro man.

According to court records, on Nov. 23, Oklahoma City police were dispatched to 1950 NW 10th Street in response to a 911 call regarding assault with a deadly weapon.

When officers arrived, they found Micah Mason bleeding from cuts to his face. Mason identified himself as a resident at that address.

Mason reportedly told police that Gardner had come to the home and pulled down the wind chimes and then broke out the home’s front window.

When Mason confronted Gardner in the yard, Gardner began striking him about the face with the wind chimes.

Gardner, 21, was arrested by police and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property.

Yesterday formal criminal charges were filed in Oklahoma County against Gardner.

As of the posting, Gardner remains in jail on a $5,500 bond.

Court records show that since the Holtzclaw trial, Gardner has had several run-ins with the law.

In April of 2015, Gardner was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault and battery in Muskogee County.

In Feb. of 2016, Gardner was again criminally charged in Muskogee County. This time for felony larceny from a house, domestic assault and battery and preventing another from placing a 911 call.

In April of 2016 Gardner pleaded guilty in both cases and was given a slap on the wrist 12-month deferred sentence, despite multiple warrants having to be issued prior to her plea, due to her failure to appear in court. On Nov. 09 of this year warrants in both criminal cases were issued for Gardner, due to her failure to pay her court costs and fines.

In Oct of this year, Gardner was criminally charged in Oklahoma County with felony assault and battery upon a police officer.

Within two weeks of those charges, Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater let Gardner go with a three-year deferred sentence.

In June of 2015, as reported locally by KFOR News Ch4, Gardner was accused of attacking a man in his home with a machete. Gardner was arrested on criminal complaints of assault with a deadly weapon. Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater chose not to charge Gardner with any crimes related to the machete attack.

HoltzclawTrial.com followers will recall that Gardner was the 17-year old who accused then Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw of raping her on the porch of her mother’s rent house, only a few blocks from where her current charges stem. Gardner reportedly told her mother, only hours after encountering Holtzclaw, that she had met a ‘hot cop.’

At trial, the prosecution revealed that Gardner’s DNA was found in the zipper area of Holtzclaw’s uniform pants.

The state’s own DNA expert testified that the DNA found was in extremely small quantities and that the skin cell DNA could have come from any part of Gardner’s body and could have been transferred during a pat down or while Holtzclaw was searching through her purse.

Oklahoma County Prosecutor Gayland Gieger falsely told the jury in his closing remarks that it was a ‘fact’ that Gardner’s DNA was transferred from her vaginal area. Gieger also intentionally neglected to reveal that male DNA was also found in the same area of Holtzclaw’s pants. The state’s DNA expert testified that the male DNA did not belong to Holtzclaw.

In April of 2016, Gardner filed a federal lawsuit seeking a huge monetary payout in regard to her sexual assault allegations against Holtzclaw.
