Paula Christiansen, spokeswoman for the Office of Juvenile Affairs, said she could not provide an update on the employment status of Moriarity or Stewart.

Fry has 23 years of experience working with children and their families and was an administrator for both the Office of Juvenile Affairs and the Department of Human Services.

He worked at Tecumseh's Central Oklahoma Juvenile Center from 2001 to 2003, first as a deputy superintendent and later as administrator of programs, Christiansen said.

“I am pleased to bring Jerry Fry back to our agency,” Christian said in the news release. “Jerry has been a great asset to the agency in the past, and I look forward to working with him in his new role at COJC. He brings with him a great background working with troubled youth.”

Fry serves on several boards and commissions, including the Pottawatomie County Post Adjudication Review Board, the State Post Adjudication Review and Advisory Board, the State Child Abuse Training and Coordination Council, the Oklahoma Children's Agencies and Residential Enterprises board of directors, the Mission Tecumseh board of directors, and the Crossroads Youth and Family Services board of directors.
