15-year-old charged with child sex abuse

NORMAN — An Oklahoma City teen was charged with five counts relating to child sexual abuse in Cleveland County District Court earlier this week.

Zackery Michael Martin, 15, of Oklahoma City, Cleveland County, was charged with two counts of first degree rape and three counts of lewd acts with a child under age 16.

All of the charges involved a female who was 9 years old during the time of the incidents. The victim’s mother called Oklahoma City police after a 14-year-old female witness told the mother she saw Martin and the victim on the couch together and Martin was pulling his pants up, the affidavit filed with charges stated.

The mother then asked the victim, her daughter, if Martin had touched her and victim replied yes, the affidavit stated.

The incident was reported at the beginning of February and during forensic interviews at the Mary Abbott Children’s House later that month, the victim disclosed more information about other incidents that had occurred between Martin and herself.

The victim also said some of the incidents occurred several times and that the incidents started when she was 4 and continued until he got caught this last time, the affidavit stated.

The three counts of lewd acts Martin was charged with were all different in nature. They included inappropriately touching the victim, kissing the victim on the mouth with his tongue and inappropriately touching himself in front of the victim.

All three acts were “in a lewd and lascivious manner for sexual gratification,” the charges filed stated.

The victim apparently lived in close proximity to Martin, according to the affidavit.

The case has been automatically assigned to District Judge Tom Lucas.
