IDABEL, OK -- The Broken Bow man accused of having sex with and providing alcohol to teenaged boys was convicted on 39 of 42 felony counts Friday in McCurtain County Court.

A jury found 32-year-old Thomas Bradley Porton guilty on dozens of counts including rape, sexual battery, lewd acts with a child, and providing alcohol to minors. The jury recommended a total of 621 years in prison after deliberating for more than five hours Friday afternoon.

Porton was arrested in 2012, but had been out on bond.
