Teen charged with rape under Youthful Offender Act

Transcript Staff

A 15-year-old Luther boy was charged Friday in Cleveland County District Court under the Youthful Offender Act with felony crimes of first-degree rape, first-degree rape by instrumentation and forcible sodomy, for sexual acts allegedly committed over a three-month period with a 10-year-old boy.

The acts were allegedly committed between July 1 and Sept. 30 at a residence in the 800 block of North Markwell Avenue in Moore. When interviewed by Moore police, the 15-year-old admitted he'd been playing a "game" with the 10-year-old over the last three months, police said. He admitted molesting the boy on several occasions, and forcing the boy to perform oral sodomy, police said.

Also Friday, a man was charged with unlawful trafficking in illegal drugs, following a traffic stop and routine search of his vehicle, police said.

Other charges filed Friday include:

Tony Ray Brown, 23, Norman, aggravated assault and battery;

Justin Tyler Steward, 18, Norman, burglary of an automobile;
