OKMULGEE COUNTY, Okla. – A convicted child predator is facing an additional charge after another victim comes forward. In January 2020, 75-year-old Lester Vincent Lay plead guilty to one count of Child Sexual Abuse. The charge stemmed from allegations by a 13-year-old female that Lay sexually abused her in July 2020.

The abuse was reported to the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office by the girl’s mother and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) was requested to assist with the investigation. The Okmulgee County District Attorney’s office filed charges against Lay and he was arrested by OSBI agents in October. After pleading guilty, Lay received a ten year sentence in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

In March 2020, the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office requested the OSBI assist with an investigation after another teenage girl reported being molested by Lay. The abuse occurred between 2014 and 2018 when the girl was between the ages of 9 and 12. In an interview, Lay admitted to OSBI agents that he inappropriately touched the girl. Earlier this month, the Okmulgee County District Attorney filed one charge of Child Sexual Abuse against Lay.

If you suspect your child has had inappropriate contact with Lay, contact the OSBI immediately at (800) 522-8017 or [email protected]
