BROKEN BOW — A McCurtain County man accused of molesting six boys and giving them alcohol and pharmaceutical pills has turned himself into authorities.

Broken Bow Police Chief Richard Wiggins said Thomas Bradley Porton, 30, of Broken Bow, turned himself in about 5 p.m. Saturday.

His initial court appearance is scheduled at 2 p.m. Tuesday in McCurtain County District Court, officials said.

Porton was booked into the McCurtain County jail on two complaints of sodomy of a person under 16, five complaints of lewd or indecent acts with a child under 16, four complaints of furnishing alcoholic beverages to a person under 21 and seven complaints of indecent exhibition of obscene material.

He was released Saturday night on $150,000 bail, officials said.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the first victim told officers he met Porton in 2010 and began receiving counseling services from him. An employee at a Southern Oklahoma Treatment Services clinic in Idabel said Porton used to work there but is no longer employed with the agency.

The first victim told police Porton provided him with alcohol, pharmaceutical pills, lubricants, pornographic videos, sex toys and orange pills with smiley faces suspected to be Ecstasy, according to the affidavit.
