Prosecutors say a Tulsa district judge failed to follow the law when he changed his mind and gave a deferred sentence instead of prison time to a man who admitted sexually abusing a teen in DHS custody.

Tulsa District Judge James Caputo originally sentenced Ronald Jay Green II to two years in prison and eight years of probation in the case involving a 15-year-old girl in Department of Human Services custody. Four days later, on June 3, Caputo threw out that sentence and gave Green a 10-year deferred term, withholding a finding of guilt, records show.

Green was charged with forcible oral sodomy after accepting an offer of oral sex in 2010 from a 15-year-old girl in foster care. At the time, Green was a temporary social work aide and was driving the girl from Stillwater to Tulsa.
