Stephens County man charged with molestation

Posted: Updated:

STEPHENS COUNTY,Okla_A Stephens County man has been charged with molestation and indecent exposure for incidents involving two teenage girls, one is a foreign exchange student staying in his home.  

James Campbell of Corum, Oklahoma was arrested after the 17 year-old student was awakened and saw Campbell performing a sexual act over her. When she screamed, the other 17 year-old woke up to see Campbell leaving.  

She told investigators Campbell had previously molested her.  Sheriff McKinney says the foreign exchange student wants to go back home to Slovakia.

 

"I don't blame her she hasn't been in the U.S. very long, she got here last Friday so that's not a long time frame to be here and to have something this devastating to happen to her,"  said McKinney.

The Sheriff says the fact that two foreigners have come into harm's way while in his county is sickening but hopes the actions of the accused don't serve as a reflection of who they are. 

"This is a wonderful country and we have our faults but so does every other country, but speaking of our county I wouldn't live here, have my grandkids live here if I thought it was unsafe to raise a family here I feel this is one of the best places to live in the State of Oklahoma, " explains McKinney.
