The District Attorney’s office filed five felony charges Friday against 41-year old Burneyville resident Robert Michael Woodall.
According to the information in the charging documents filed in Love County Court, Woodall could face a lengthy prison sentence and fines or the death penalty upon conviction. Those documents allege the defendant committed acts with two adolescent girls.
The two counts of rape, one of which is listed as first degree and the second as “first or second degree,” would carry a potential punishment by death or no fewer than five years in prison if convicted. The other charges, including rape by instrumentation, and lewd acts with a minor child under age 16, would carry penalties ranging from five years to life without parole.
Court documents show the state expects to include testimony from several witnesses, including representatives from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations, Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Sara’s House, and the victims themselves.
A status hearing has been set for April 2018 in the case. There has been no entry of appearance filed by any attorney to represent the accused as of yet.
Bail has been set at the initial hearing at $100,000 with the condition that the defendant not contact the victims nor come within 2,000 feet of a school.
