Big Cabin, Salina men charged with sex crimes

PRYOR, OK — Rick Murray, 55, Big Cabin, is charged with a felony count of lewd molestation filed by the Mayes County Sheriff's Office. Court records say Murray was touching a 10-year old minor in a sexual manner. The girl's mother reported the incident to the sheriff's office.

Murray appeared in Mayes County District Court for arraignment Wednesday afternoon. Judge Rebecca Gore informed the defendant that his charges can carry from 20 years to life in prison. Appearing via video conference from the county jail, Murray was told his case was continued to Dec. 19. Bond was set at $250,000 “due to the disparity of the crime.”

Roger Gilley, Salina, is charged with several sex crimes in Mayes County.

Court records show that Gilley, 53, is charged with a felony count of indecent exposure and soliciting sexual conduct with a minor by use of technology.

Records filed on Nov. 8 show that on April 1, 2012, Gilley sent pictures of his genitalia, via text message, to a 14-year old-minor. Mayes County Sheriff's Deputy Dan Whalen took statements from the victim's mother who said Gilley sent the pictures posing as a juvenile male.

The mother said she continued to receive text messages after she confiscated the phone. Gilley allegedly requested the minor send sexually explicit pictures to him.

He appeared in Mayes County District Court on this charge Tuesday afternoon. Judge Rebecca Gore informed the defendant each charge can carry up to 20 years in the Oklahoma Department of Corections and set his case on the preliminary hearing sounding docket Dec. 19. Bond was set at $100,000.

Gilley was charged with three counts of lewd molestation in August. Charges in that case were filed by the Chouteau Police Department. Bond in this case was set at $100,000, only to be lowered Oct. 17 to $50,000. As a special condition of bond, Gilley was ordered to have no contact with any non-related minors under the age of 16 and not to be left alone with any relative under age 16.
