Child Rape Investigation Leads to Suspect in Separate Case28-Jul-2014
Police investigating an alleged rape found themselves with two suspects in two separate crimes after the accuser said she was raped by different men on different occasions.
Initially, law enforcement agents were investigating the claims of a 13-year-old girl who said that her soccer coach in Burns Flat raped her. While they were talking to her, she indicated that she was also raped by a different man at his Yukon home in a separate incident in December 2013.
In that case, the girl said that Roy D. Doshier, 50, provided her with marijuana at his home, and that she passed out after smoking it. She alleges that when she woke up, the man was on top of her having sex with her.
Canadian County Sheriff's deputies arrested Doshier and questioned him about the allegations. Reports say that Doshier not only admitted to having sex with the girl, but also drew a picture of the incident for them indicating the degree of penetration.
Although reports do not reveal how far Doshier allegedly claims to have gone, Oklahoma rape law states in 21 O.S. 1113 that "slight penetration is sufficient to complete the crime." The statute reads as follows:
"The essential guilt of rape or rape by instrumentation, except with the consent of a male or female over fourteen (14) years of age, consists in the outrage to the person and feelings of the victim. Any sexual penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the crime."
The suspect was arrested on a first degree rape complaint and booked into the Canadian County Jail, where he was held on $50,000 bond.
Doshier, who has prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance, being in actual physical control (APC) of a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and felony DUI, currently has another pending DUI case in Oklahoma County. In that case, he is charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, driving without a license, and other related offenses.
Canadian County Sheriff's deputies were notified of the two rape cases after the girl allegedly told a drug rehab counselor about the incidents. On July 8, police arrested Eric Beasterman of Burns Flat. He is accused of beginning a sexual relationship with the girl when she was only 11 years old, before the girl moved from Burns Flat to Yukon. Deputies say Beasterman admitted having sex with the girl, and he is charged with two counts of first degree rape.
First degree rape is a Level 3 sex offense, and anyone convicted of this crime must register as a sex offender for life under the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA). First degree rape is punishable by life in prison.
