Raymond Leon Cotten

Raymond Leon Cotten, 57, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with lewd or indecent proposals to a child under 16 — a felony — after a 15-year-old boy told police he asked to have a threesome with the boy and his 13-year-old female friend.

Officers were dispatched to 348 E. Broadway, Apartment 23, in April in reference to a disturbance there. When an officer arrived, “several people” told him Cotten had “made inappropriate comments to a juvenile about he, Cotten and the male juvenile having sex with his female friend, who is also a juvenile.”

The officer saw Cotten come out of his apartment and said he was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. The officer arrested him and then the juvenile male wrote a statement accusing Cotten of the lewd proposal.

Though the incident happened in April, the case was filed yesterday.
