McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - A Pittsburg County grand jury has leveled new charges against a man whose case provoked a national furor after he was sentenced to one year in jail for raping a 4-year-old girl.
An indictment unsealed Wednesday accuses David Harold Earls of 3 counts of lewd and lascivious or indecent acts with a child under 16.
The grand jury accused Earls, 65, of molesting two children, one 5 years old and the other 6 years old, between May 9, 2008, and July 20, 2008.
Earls pleaded no contest in May to first-degree rape and forcible sodomy for attacking the 4-year-old girl. All but one year of a 20-year sentence was suspended as part of a plea agreement.
Attorney General Drew Edmondson sought the grand jury investigation in July.
