Ryan Roy Kennedy

Ryan Roy Kennedy, 37, of Haskell is charged in Muskogee County District Court with felony child sexual abuse, according to documents filed with the case.

Kennedy is accused of putting his hands over the top and underneath the clothes of a fifth-grade girl, and then telling her not to tell anyone. Kennedy is alleged to have put his hands “where they shouldn’t have been,” according to the girl.

The abuse is alleged to have started on Jan. 3, 2013 and continued for five years, until this year.
