10-27-06 - Sheldon J. Sperling, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, announced Curtis Charles Phillips, age 50, of Kingston, Oklahoma, pled guilty to False Statement and Obstruction of Justice.
“Charges arose from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department,” commented United States Attorney Sperling. “The defendant corrupted, altered, destroyed, mutilated, and concealed a computer, digital camera, and video camera, and made false statements to the FBI about their disposal. These items were used to take and distribute pictures of himself having sex with an adult, mentally-disabled female he brought to Oklahoma from another state for that purpose.”
Sperling added, “The Honorable Steven P. Shreder, Magistrate Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma accepted the defendant’s guilty plea. After completion of a pre-sentence report, the Court will schedule sentencing. The charges are in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001, and 1512(c) (1) and (2). PHILLIPS could receive up to 20 years imprisonment and or up to $250,000.00 in fines. Assistant United States Attorney Linda Epperley represented the government at today’s hearing."
