Maurice Billings

Maurice Darnell Billings, 46, of Muskogee was charged with first-degree rape yesterday after he was arrested Wednesday on complaints of first-degree rape and incest. Billings also goes by the alias of Tony.

On Wednesday, according to documents filed with the case, Billings was sitting on a couch with a female relative and “began to force himself on her.”

The victim repeatedly told Billings to stop and said “no,” according to the affidavit. Billings ignored her and ripped her clothes off, forcing her to have sex with her, the affidavit states.

Billings was convicted in 1995 of first-degree rape and sentenced to 20 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. He was released in 2006, nine years before the end of his sentence. He has also previously been convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon (20-year sentence) and grand larceny.
