Krebs man sentenced three years for assault, molestation

McALESTER — A Krebs man arrested on charges of assault, molestation and sending indecent texts to a 12-year-old girl has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Franklin Wyatt Jr., 34, pleaded guilty Tuesday to reduced charges of asking the girl to text him nude photos of herself. He was sentenced to 15 years, with 12 years suspended, and was ordered to have no contact with the child.

An affidavit filed by Krebs police alleges the man had traded texts with the girl last spring, and that when his wife found text messages on his phone in July, he punched her in the face. He was originally charged with lewd or indecent proposals to a child under 16, lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16, molestation and misdemeanor domestic abuse.

Court records indicate the girl and her family approved the plea to a charge of obscene or indecent writings or pictures.

Wyatt’s attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
