DA files charge against teen in alleged rape

EDMOND — Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater filed a two-count felony rape charge against a teenager accused of raping his grandmother, court records show.

Prosecutors allege that Trevon Malik Isaac, 15, committed the crime of rape on July 11 at the victim’s home in Edmond. Two counts of first-degree rape were filed Monday in Oklahoma County District Court. The Oklahoma State Courts Network lists the defendant’s residence as Pueblo, Colo.

On July 17, a probable cause hearing was held and a judge determined probable cause for the defendant’s arrest does exist and did exist at the time of the arrest. Bond was set at $25,000. Tuesday morning the suspect remained incarcerated in the Oklahoma County jail.

No defense attorney information was listed on the state’s courts website. A charge is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial during which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Information included with the initial charges filing included a notice of rights to the defendant and a parent.

It defined a preliminary hearing, where evidence is presented to the court to determine whether there is probable cause to believe that the accused person has committed a criminal offense. It detailed what a defendant is entitled to do during a preliminary hearing, including their option of testifying or not testifying at that time.

It explained a defendant’s right to be represented at each and every stage of the proceedings and to have a court-appointed attorney.

It stated the defendant could apply before the preliminary hearing for certification as a child and youthful offender to the District Court’s Juvenile District, allowing the release of the complete juvenile record to the defendant. It stated that after the state’s case during the preliminary hearing the accused person has the right to offer evidence in support of his application.

No future court dates, including a preliminary hearing, were listed in court records.

On July 14, the victim called the Edmond Police Department to report that her 15-year-old grandson had raped her in her home, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Oklahoma County District Court by Edmond Police Detective Michael Chesley.

The victim told an Edmond officer that the suspect lives in another state, but had been staying with her since July 2, according to the affidavit.

She said she takes medication at night for medical reasons and it puts her to sleep, according to the affidavit. When she awoke on July 12 she felt pain and her panties were missing, police said. She said she found them under the bed and they had been cut, police said.

Based on the facts and circumstances, including the corroborating results of a sexual assault exam, sufficient probable cause existed for the filing of criminal charges, Chesley stated in the affidavit.

  • A Q&A on ‘Obamacare’ Court Rulings

    On Tuesday, two federal appeals courts issued conflicting rulings on the legality of tax subsidies being provided to people who bought “Obamacare” health insurance policies in Oklahoma and 35 other states.
    Here’s a look at the rulings’ potential impact in Oklahoma.

    Q: I’m confused. What did the courts rule today?
    A: A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Washington, D.C., decided that the government can’t provide tax subsidies for Affordable Care Act plans purchased in 36 states where the federal government is operating the health insurance exchange. Oklahoma is one of the 36 states. A few hours later, the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Richmond, Va., issued a conflicting ruling that upheld the legality of the health-care law’s tax subsidies.

    “It’s always good when you go hire staff and you look at just getting the right people within your program. And, a lot of times, guys know a lot of Xs and Os, but it’s all just about developing a player,” said Strong, Tuesday during the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days. “Joe and I, we’ve coached together at two different places. But just with him being within his conference and knowing the conference, he’s been a great asset.”
