Man accused of sex abuse may have lengthy history
A man accused of sexually abusing two minors in his Hugo home in 2011 was arrested Wednesday, according to an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation news release. Curtis Lee Martin, 53, was arrested at 912 Lowery Parkway on two complaints of lewd molestation after a cooperative investigation between the OSBI, Choctaw County sheriff's office, Hugo Police Department and the state Department of Human Services. During the investigation, agents located several other victims whose abuse occurred as early as 1980, the news release states. In 1991, Martin pleaded guilty to lewd molestation of a child and was sentenced to a five-year deferred sentence. Investigators think Martin may have victimized other children over the past 30 years who have not been identified. Anyone with information about possible unidentified victims is asked to call the OSBI at (580) 298-5525.

in bank fraud
A veterinarian in Cordell has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for bank fraud. U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats said David Sturgeon, 63, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Oklahoma City. Sturgeon had pleaded guilty in March to making false statements in order to obtain bank loans. Sturgeon admitted that he secured loans to allegedly purchase cattle, but instead used the money to pay margin calls to a commodities trading account with a Chicago firm. Sturgeon also was ordered to pay nearly $893,000 in restitution.
