The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Jeffrey Denton Sumka, 27, entered a guilty plea to one count of sexual abuse of a minor in Indian Country, punishable by a term of imprisonment of up to 15 years, a fine of $250,000.00, a term of supervised release of not more than 5 years, and a special assessment in the amount of $100.00.
By pleading guilty, Sumka admitted that on May of 2017, a twelve-year-old female met him and he supplied the female with illegal drugs, and she then had sex with him at least ten times. The relationship continued until the female was fifteen years old, and in 2020, at the age of 15, the female became pregnant and had the defendant’s child, which was confirmed with DNA testing.
The charges arose from an investigation by the Muscogee Creek Nation Lighthorse Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Kimberley West accepted the plea and ordered the completion of a presentence investigation report.
