Robert Dale Ogden

Robert Dale Ogden, 43, of Oktaha has been arrested and charged in Muskogee County District Court with two felony counts of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16 after he was allegedly caught rubbing the girl in private areas while she slept.

According to an affidavit filed with the case, Ogden was caught by the 14-year-old girl’s mother around 3:30 a.m. on June 26 standing next to the bed where the girl was sleeping, wearing only panties.

The next day, the girl underwent a forensic interview in Claremore, where she described that, several weeks earlier, she awoke and Ogden was rubbing her.

Ogden was arrested June 28 and was released yesterday on a $25,000 bond. He is due back in court July 15 for a sounding docket.
