(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Stillwater man who was convicted of molesting a young female relative more than 20 years ago, for which he served four and one-half years in prison in the 1990s, has been jailed on $50,000 bail on charges of sexually abusing another young female relative during 2014 when she was four-years-old and five-years-old.
Mack Harold Posey Sr., 56, who was arrested last week, has been ordered to appear in court Thursday with an attorney.
Due to his criminal record, Posey could receive two sentences of life in prison without parole if convicted of two counts of lewd or indecent proposals to a child after a former felony conviction, court records show.
Stillwater Police Detective Lt. Jeff Watts wrote in an affidavit that he was contacted by a victim advocate at the Saville Center on Dec. 9, 2014.
The mother of a five-year-old girl, who is related to Posey, believed that her child was sexually assaulted by Posey, the affidavit alleged.
The mother reported that on Dec. 6, 2014, she and her husband had friends at their house to watch the Bedlam game, the affidavit alleged.
She said toward the end of the game she walked to the back of their residence and noticed Posey in her son’s bedroom alone with her daughter, the affidavit alleged.
She said this made her uncomfortable so she told her husband to do something about it, the affidavit alleged.
She said “she knew Mack (Posey) had been convicted of sexually assaulting a child in the past and she didn’t want him in a room alone with her daughter,” the affidavit alleged.
She said her husband told Posey to leave, the affidavit alleged.
She said her husband told her to talk to their daughter who disclosed that Posey fondled her genital area, the affidavit alleged.
The girl’s mother said that Posey had lived with them at their trailer from about March 2014 until August or September 2014, the affidavit alleged.
She said that while Posey and his wife were living with them, they allowed them to watch their children when they were not home, the affidavit alleged.
When the child was interviewed on Dec. 11, 2014, by a forensic interviewer at the Saville Center in Stillwater, the Stillwater police detective observed by closed circuit TV what the child disclosed about Posey’s alleged sexual abuse of her, the affidavit said.
The child said it happened on multiple occasions, the affidavit alleged.
When the child’s father was interviewed that day by the detective, he said that on the weekend of the Bedlam game, Posey was visiting his residence, the affidavit alleged.
He said as the game ended, Posey told him he was “going to say goodbye to the kids before he left,” the affidavit alleged.
He said that a short time later, his wife told him that Posey was alone in one of the bedrooms with their daughter, the affidavit alleged.
He said that he asked their daughter if Posey touched her genital area and she responded “sometimes,” the affidavit alleged.
When the detective interviewed Posey on Dec. 30, 2014, Posey said that while he was living there, he and his wife regularly watched the children when the couple were not home, the affidavit alleged.
Posey said he would often wrestle with the little girl and claimed that she “would grab his hands and put them between her legs,” the affidavit alleged. Posey “admitted he still has an attraction to young females,” but he denied the contact with the little girl was sexual, the affidavit alleged.
Posey said his hands did touch the skin of the little girl’s inner legs when she was wearing shorts and claimed “she had grabbed his hands and forced them between her legs,” the affidavit alleged.
According to state Department of Corrections records, Posey was convicted in 1994 of child molestation in Payne County for which he was given a five-year prison term and released in 1999. Four years later, he was convicted of possessing marijuana in Payne County in 2001 and placed on probation for three years, court records show.
In 2009, Posey was convicted of aggravated drunk driving in Payne County and placed on probation for four years conditioned on his serving 75 days in jail, court records show. Less than three years later, his probation was revoked and he was sent to prison, from which he was released in 2013, DOC records show.
