Wayland Driskell

Wayland Lee Driskell, 43, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with first-degree rape and unlawful possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute.

Driskell is accused of using the drug Phencyclidine — also known as PCP — to lace a cigarette and then use the drug’s effects to overcome her resistance and rape her on May 15.

The woman told police she said “no” and “stop” several times during the encounter, but that she was rendered physically unable to resist during the incident.

Several witnesses found the victim outside after the incident, the cigarette still in her position, according to an affidavit filed with the case. She immediately told the witnesses she was raped at that “Cuff” (Driskell) was the one who had done it.
