EL RENO – A registered sex offender will spend 15 years in state prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a child in Yukon.
Sean Taylor Naney, 38, was sentenced at a Sept. 21 hearing in Canadian County District Court.
The Oklahoma City man was convicted on two felony counts of lewd/indecent acts to child under 16. Naney has two previous felony convictions, one of them for violating the Sex Offender Registration Act.
Naney, represented by attorney J.P. Hill, waived his right to a trial before Canadian County District Judge Paul Hesse.
Judge Hesse accepted Naney’s guilty plea on both counts and sentenced him to serve 15 years in the state Department of Corrections with 15 years suspended. Both counts will run concurrently.
Naney was given credit for time served in the Canadian County Jail. He will be supervised by the DOC while on probation after his release from prison.
The convicted sex offender had faced 20 years in prison.
Yukon Police investigated the crimes against the defendant, which reportedly occurred between January 2018 and July 2020 when the female victim was 11-13 years old. Naney was formally charged April 20.
A Yukon police investigator in January observed an interview with the 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.
The affidavit, filed in district court along with the criminal charges, graphically details other sexual assault allegations against Naney.
Naney was convicted in April 2008 in Oklahoma County for failure to register as a sex offender and in January 2003 in Logan County for assault with intent to commit statutory rape.
