Oklahoma City Man Accused of Lewd Acts with Two Teens

31-Jul-2015

An Oklahoma City man is accused of sexually assaulting a friend's 15-year-old daughter and the girl's 14-year-old friend at a sleepover this weekend at the older teen's house.

On Sunday, police were called to investigate the claims that Weldon Washington, 52, inappropriately touched the two teens repeatedly as he drove them around town during the sleepover. The older girl's mother calls Washington a "friend" who helps her out and occasionally checks on her children for her while she is at work.

The 14-year-old told police that she went to her friend's house Saturday night, and as soon as she arrived, the man began trying to touch her inappropriately. She says that she told him several times to stop and that she also physically pushed him away.

The man then took the girls to see a movie, and the younger teen says that despite her earlier refusal of his advances, he kept placing his hand on her leg during the movie.

Both girls said they continued to refuse his advances over the course of the night. After getting drinks from a local convenience store, the girls say, they began to feel sleepy and disoriented. They claim Washington took them to his appointment where he sexually assaulted them. The older girl told police she was able to rouse herself enough to insist that Washington stop touching her and her friend, and he drove them back to her house.

The 15-year-old says the man came over again the next day to apologize for his actions.

She told police that, despite his apology, the incident on Saturday night was not the first time her mother's friend has tried to engage in sexual contact with her.

Washington was arrested the next day. He is held in the Oklahoma County Jail on two complaints of lewd acts with a child under 16. Police say their investigation is continuing.

It is important to remember that all suspects are innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.

Lewd or indecent proposals or acts to a child under 16 includes any physical sexual contact with a minor aged 15 or younger. In 21 O.S. § 1123, Oklahoma law prohibits making sexual suggestions or proposals, touching in a lewd or lascivious manner, and even looking in a sexual manner at anyone who has not yet reached the age of consent, which in Oklahoma is 16.

If the minor involved in the incident is aged 12 to 15, the penalty for lewd acts with a minor under 16 is 3 to 20 years in prison. If the minor is under the age of 12, the crime is considered to be much more serious. Lewd or indecent proposals or acts to a child aged 11 or younger is punishable by 25 years to life in prison.
