DPD seeks man for impregnating Duncan teenager

DUNCAN —  Police were searching Wednesday for a 36-year-old Duncan man accused of impregnating a 17-year-old girl.

 An arrest warrant was issued in Stephens County District Court on Tuesday for Jason Anthony McDaniel of the 500 block of North A Street, who is charged with felony child sex abuse.

 The charge alleges he willfully engaged in lewd or indecent acts with a child under 18, according to court records. The crime is punishable by up to life in prison.

 Duncan Police Detective William Fitzhugh talked to McDaniel on Friday, according to a court affidavit. McDaniel said he wanted a lawyer if he was going to be arrested and at that point questioning was stopped.

 Fitzhugh told McDaniel to have an attorney contact him on Monday, but McDaniel said he could not afford one. Fitzhugh advised him to go to the court clerk’s office and file paperwork to have counsel appointed.

 A second offense warrant was issued late Tuesday after a man told police he had information about McDaniel and the allegations.

 According to the affidavit, a nurse with the Stephens County Health Department talked with the girl during a home visit last on July 12. She told the nurse she was 19 weeks and one day pregnant and that McDaniel was the father of the child.

 She said the first incident with McDaniel began as tickling, then kissing and “then it happened,” the affidavit states.

 “At first it was two to three times week, then once or twice and the last time was three weeks ago,” the girl is quoted as saying. She said she got the Plan B pill in February but it was taken too late to avoid the pregnancy.

 “I’ve been depressed over all this,” the girl said.

 Fitzhugh said he talked to the girl and she told him she and McDaniel had been having sex two to three times a week beginning in early January, and that she had not had sex with anyone else.

 The girl was taken into the custody of the Department of Human Services on Friday and taken to a shelter.

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
