(Stillwater, Okla.) — A convicted child molester, who remains free on $2,500 bail, has been ordered to appear in court on June 14 on a felony charge of violating the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act between Feb. 23 and May 12.
Due to his criminal record, Johnathan Lee Weems, 25, could be given a prison term of four years to life if convicted of claiming to reside at a trailer home on Candy Lane when he was allegedly staying at a hotel in Stillwater.
Weems could be given an additional prison term of four years to life if convicted of attacking Stillwater Police Officer Chris Howell in the Stillwater Medical Center emergency room on April 26, 2020, where he was allegedly screaming that he was Elvis Presley’s son. Weems has been scheduled to appear in court on that felony charge on June 7.
Weems had been convicted in 2017 of indecent acts to a child under 16 in Perkins in 2015, for which he was given one year in jail followed by nine years of probation. But in 2019, Weems was found in violation of his probation and given a one-year jail term followed by an additional three years of probation, court records show.
Weems had also previously been convicted of animal cruelty in Stillwater in 2017, for which he was given a concurrent nine-month jail term. Weems had also been convicted in January of 2019 of violating the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act in 2018 in Payne County, for which he was given a one-year jail term with credit for the time he had already served.
