A registered sex offender could spend up to 20 years in state prison if convicted on new child sexual assault charges stemming from a Yukon police investigation.

Oklahoma City’s Sean Taylor Naney, 38, was charged April 20 in Canadian County District Court with two felony counts of lewd/indecent acts to child under 16. The defendant has two previous felony convictions, one of them for failing to properly register as a sex offender.

Assistant District Attorney Eric Epplin alleges Naney touched an underage girl “in a lewd or lascivious manner.”

The alleged acts reportedly occurred between January 2018 and July 2020, court documents indicate.

A Yukon police investigator in January observed an interview with the alleged victim conducted by a child welfare worker at the Canadian County CART (Child Abuse Response Team) House.

The juvenile “disclosed she was touched inappropriately and in a sexual manner for approximately two years by the defendant,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit signed by the detective.

DECLINES INTERVIEW

The affidavit, filed in district court along with the criminal charge, graphically details other sexual assault allegations against Naney.

After speaking with witnesses, the Yukon detective contacted Naney by telephone.

The defendant declined an interview and told the police investigator he would talk with an attorney before making a statement, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

Under Oklahoma state law, the punishment for lewd/indecent acts to child under 16 after two or more previous convictions is not less than 20 years in prison.

Naney was convicted in April 2008 in Oklahoma County for failure to comply with the Sex Offender Registration Act and in January 2003 in Logan County for assault with intent to commit statutory rape.

Canadian County Special Judge Charles Gass issued a no-bond warrant for Naney’s arrest.

The defendant was booked at 5:17 p.m. April 27 into the Canadian County Jail in El Reno.
