Girl tells friends about sex abuse at birthday party

NORMAN — An Oklahoma City man was charged with lewd acts Monday after a 14-year-old girl told friends at a birthday party the man made her do sexually inappropriate things when she was younger.

Chad Eric Casula was charged in Cleveland County District Court with one count of lewd acts with a child under 16 years of age.

According to the affidavit filed with the charge, the incidents occurred at Casula’s south Oklahoma City home in Cleveland County when the girl was 9 years old.

The girl told police that she was scared of Casula because of unreported domestic violence encounters she had seen him involved in while growing up.

The girl also told police the lewd act happened five different times within two weeks. Casula would allegedly be in the shower when he would yell for her to go into the bathroom and perform the acts on him, the affidavit said.

When she tried to refuse, she said Casula’s demands would become more adamant and he would tell her “no is not an acceptable answer.” The victim said she would give in for fear that Casula would “get mad and hurt her,” the affidavit said.

Casula also allegedly would tell the victim not to say anything to her mother because she would only get mad at the girl if she did, the document states.

When she finally talked to her mother about the incidents, it was because another girl at the birthday party told her mother what the victim told them, and eventually the victim’s mother was called, court records show.

After the girl’s mother found out, she called police.

A warrant of arrest has been issued for Casula, and his bond has been set at $75,000.
