Fletcher Kinsey, 20, of Muskogee will spend the next 10 years in prison after Judge Jeff Peyton sentenced him just now.

Kinsey pleaded guilty to the charges after an after-prom incident where a 16-year-old girl reported that he had put his fingers inside her while she slept. An OSBI investigation found no drugs or alcohol in the girl’s system.

Kinsey turned himself into police and confessed to fondling the girl’s vagina, then told his girlfriend that it was for the purpose of comparison to hers.

Rape is an 85 percent crime in Oklahoma, meaning Kinsey must serve at least eight years and six months before he can even be considered for release.
