A Weatherford man was sentenced last week to serve time in a federal prison after pleading guilty to abusive sexual contact of a child.

According to a press release from the office of Timothy J. Downing, United State Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma, 64-year-old William Art Guoladdle Sr. was ordered to serve 78 months in federal prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, for abusive sexual contact of a child in Indian Country.

A federal grand jury indicted Guoladdle on August 7, 2019, on two counts of aggravated sexual abuse and one count of abusive sexual contact of a child under seven years of age, occurring on Kiowa Tribe land in Comanche County. He pleaded guilty to abusive sexual contact of a child on June 20, 2019, before a U.S. District Judge. At the plea hearing, the defendant admitted to touching the victim’s buttocks through her clothing in a sexual way.

The release stated that the case is the result of an investigation by Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services and Lawton Police Department.
