Bradley Wayne Morris

Bradley Wayne Morris, 34, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with one felony count of sexual abuse of a child under 12 and one felony count of showing obscene material to a minor, according to documents filed with the case.

After a Play It Safe child abuse prevention program at a 10-year-old girl’s school, she reported to investigators that Morris had abused her multiple times, starting in January of 2018 and ending in January of this year. A physical sexual assault examination determined that the girl had physical evidence consistent with sexual abuse. The girl also told investigators that Morris forced her to watch adult pornography with him, which officials stated was part of the “grooming” process toward sexual abuse.

The girl said Morris touched her vagina multiple times and forced her to touch his penis multiple times.

Police executed a search warrant for Morris’s residence and interviewed him, after which he was arrested and charged. He is scheduled to appear for a sounding docket on March 24. His bond has been set at $50,000.
