McALESTER — Lewd act charges were dismissed recently for a Kiowa man.

Danny Lee Hamilton, 51, was charged Nov. 27 in Pittsburg County District Court with one felony count of lewd or indecent acts to a child younger than 16 years of age. Hamilton was accused of inappropriately touching the body of an 11-year-old girl.

According to court records, the young girl was spending the night at Hamilton’s home when he allegedly inappropriately rubbed her while she was sleeping.
