(Stillwater, Okla.) — A convicted child rapist from Cushing has been given a six-month jail term, with an order to pay the cost of his incarceration, for violating the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act, court records showed Monday.

Brett Lee Bozworth, 21, was given a concurrent six-month jail term for violating the terms of his probation in his second-degree rape case.

Bozworth remained in the Payne County Jail on Monday, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH. Bozworth was sentenced by Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler last week.

Bozworth had admitted to a probation officer in August that he had not lived at his registered address in Stillwater for about three weeks, an affidavit said.

Bozworth said “he has been living with his girlfriend close to Oklahoma State University and was unaware of the physical address,” Probation Officer Jason Nixon wrote in an affidavit.

Bozworth lived in Cushing when he pleaded guilty to having sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl in Cushing on three occasions when he was 20, court records show.

At his sentencing last March on three counts of second-degree rape of girl under the age of 16, Bozworth was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Bozworth was given a 365-day jail sentence, with credit for the time he had served since his arrest in June of 2018, followed by nine years of probation.

Bozworth was ordered to submit a DNA sample, forfeit rights to his confiscated phone, follow all rules of a sex offender including social media limitations, and pay the cost of his incarceration along with $300 to the victims’ compensation fund.

When the 14-year-old girl was interviewed at the Saville Center in Stillwater on June 25, 2018, she said “she believed Bozworth needed to get some help because he was attracted to ‘younger kids,'” Cushing Police Officer Jerrod Livergood wrote in an affidavit.

Nine months earlier when Bozworth was 19, he was charged with violating a protective order by transporting a 13-year-old girl in his vehicle on Sept. 8, 2017, two months after an EPO regarding that girl was obtained by her mother on her behalf, court records show.

A month later, Bozworth pleaded guilty to that misdemeanor charge for which he was given a 30-day jail term, with credit for time served, ordered to provide a DNA sample and pay incarceration costs, court records show.
