Richard Dyer, 48, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with fondling a young girl for five years, according to records filed with the case.
The girl, who was 10 in 2011, when the alleged acts began, was touched in her vagina and breasts from then until May of 2016, when she was 15, the documents state.
The Muskogee County District Attorney’s office has been aggressively prosecuting sex crimes against children since Orvil Loge took the office, and though this case does not involve accusations of intercourse, it is still a felony for an adult to fondle children.
“Hopefully, prosecuting all these cases will deter future crimes from occurring,” said Assistant District Attorney Nalani Ching, who filed the case against Dyer. “Muskogee County is lucky to have Orvil Loge as the district attorney.”
