James Leroy Owens, 69, of Oktaha is charged in Muskogee County District Court with child sexual abuse and accused of placing his fingers in the 14-year-old victim’s vagina.
On Oct. 3, 2018, Owens is accused of assaulting the girl, who has developmental disabilities.
The girl told a teacher and a counselor at Oktaha School, and they called the sheriff’s office. A sexual assault exam was performed that same day at Kids Space in Muskogee, where the girl again told workers that Owens had “touched me inside here with his hand,” while pointing to her vagina.
A warrant for Owens’ arrest was issued on Feb. 15.
