A Yukon man – already facing felony charges in a separate case – could spend three to 20 years in state prison for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl.

Joshua Shane Orellanes, 28, was charged Dec. 10 with lewd/indecent acts to child under 16 in Canadian County District Court.

Orellanes, of Hyacinth Hollow Drive in Westbury North, was charged with the felony crime for his actions during an Oct. 2nd incident investigated by Oklahoma City Police.

Assistant District Attorney Micheal Oglesby claims the defendant violated state law by “knowingly and intentionally touching the private parts” of the victim “in a lewd or lascivious manner by act(s) against public decency and morality.”

Allegations against Orellanes are detailed in a probable cause affidavit signed by Oklahoma City Police Det. George Goss.

Officers responded after the victim reported the sexual assault to a school counselor.

During a forensic interview at the Child Abuse Response Team (CART) House in El Reno, the girl disclosed the alleged acts occurred three times.

The court affidavit describes in graphic detail what Orellanes allegedly had done to his young victim.

In an Oct. 15th interview with Det. Goss at Oklahoma City Police Department headquarters, the defendant reportedly admitted to consuming alcohol on the night of the incident.

After reviewing the probable cause affidavit, Canadian County Special Judge Charles Gass issued a warrant for Orellanes’ arrest.

The defendant was booked at 3:17 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Canadian County Jail in El Reno. He’s being held without bond.

A preliminary hearing conference is set 9 a.m. Jan. 28, 2022, before Judge Gass.

OFFICER ASSAULT

Felony charges of assault and battery on a police officer and prisoner placing body fluid on government employee and misdemeanor domestic assault and battery were filed March 17 against Orelannes.

That case is pending in Canadian County District Court.

Those charges stem from a Feb. 21st incident, also investigated by Oklahoma City Police, that occurred at a Hyacinth Hollow Drive address in southeast Yukon.

Prosecutors allege Orellanes punched Oklahoma City Police MSgt. Edward Grimes in the mouth with his fists intending to injure the officer. The defendant also is accused of spitting on Grimes “without justifiable or excusable cause.”

Orellanes head butted another male victim “with force and violence and with the unlawful intent to do corporal hurt and bodily injury,” court documents read.

If convicted on all three counts, the defendant faces up to eight years in prison and fines totaling up to $6,500.
