John Weddendorf

John Richard Weddendorf, 62, of Muskogee is charged with a felony of possession of child pornography in Muskogee County District Court after police say they found images of child pornography on his computer.

Weddendorf was convicted in 1999 of second-degree rape (three counts), lewd molestation (four counts) and incest. He was sentenced to a total of 135 years in prison in the case.

According to an affidavit filed with the new case, on June 26, police made contact with Weddendorf during a sex offender compliance operation. During the compliance check, two officers said they observed a topless juvenile female on Weddendorf’s computer, after which he gave officers permission to search his premises.

He will have a sounding docket on July 12. His bond is set at $50,000, but the court has ruled him indigent and will appoint an attorney to represent him.
