An attorney is accused of smuggling a sex toy into Oklahoma County jail and duping an inmate into performing sex acts with it, supposedly in exchange for his legal fees.

Sheriff John Whetsel said this went on for three months before the woman realized he wasn’t actually her attorney.

The woman agreed to participate in a sting, and Frank Kirk, 70, of Oklahoma City, was arrested Monday in a visitation room at the jail with the woman present. The sheriff’s office withheld her name.

Kirk was contacted to become the woman’s attorney in January but never became her attorney of record, Whetsel said. From her initial court appearance on drug charges, she was represented by the Oklahoma County public defender’s office and it’s not clear why she thought he was her lawyer.

Over the course of three months and six documented visits at the jail, the woman told investigators Kirk coerced her to masturbate in front of him, expose her breasts and touch his penis, according to court documents.

The woman learned Kirk was not her attorney this past week after a visit with her actual attorney from the public defender’s office.

As part of the sting, sheriff’s investigators recorded audio of Kirk making sexual advances toward the woman in a visitation room.

Investigators arrested Kirk, with contraband items including a cellphone and the sex toy, which was in his laptop case, according to court documents.
