Man convicted of lewd acts with child

NORMAN — A Cleveland County jury convicted a Norman man last week of committing lewd acts with a child, according to court records.

Isaiah Hamburger, 20, was charged Oct. 5, 2009, in Cleveland County District Court with two counts of lewd acts with a child, according to court records. The charges involved a 4-year-old girl.

According to a court affidavit, Norman police began their investigation into the incident July 6, 2009. A woman told police that her daughter described an incident between her and Hamburger that happened June 28 and 29, 2009 at a residence in Norman.

The affidavit showed the girl underwent a forensic interview about the alleged incident.

Police interviewed Hamburger about the allegations. He denied any wrongdoing, according to the affidavit.

Records show Hamburger’s trial began Dec. 6 in District Judge Lori Walkley’s courtroom. Assistant District Attorneys Jennifer Austin and James Siderias prosecuted Hamburger. Norman attorney Tracy Schumacher represented him.

According to court records, jurors returned a guilty verdict on Dec. 10.

The verdict form shows Hamburger was convicted on one count of lewd acts with a child under 12. He was acquitted on the second count. The jury recommended he be sentenced to 33 years in prison.

Hamburger was remanded to the Cleveland County Detention Center. He will be sentenced Jan. 27, 2011.
