Westville pair sentenced for sexual assault of a minor

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that a man and a woman were sentenced for sexual offenses they committed against minors in Indian country.

Robert Lee Catron, 36, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for one count of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor.  According to investigators, Catron sexually assaulted a child he knew to be under the age of 12 between 2020 and 2022.

Jenny Marie Locust, 39, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for one count of enticement and coercion of a minor.  According to investigators, Locust used her cell phone to entice and coerce a child under the age of 18 to engage in sexual activity with Catron between 2021 and 2022.

Charges against Catron and Locust arose after a probe by the Westville Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

“I'm extremely grateful for the collaborative effort that brought these defendants to justice for their detestable crimes,” said Special Agent Jason Kaplan of the FBI Oklahoma City Field Office. “The significant sentences handed down in this case should send a clear message to child predators that law enforcement will aggressively pursue them, even when the abuse is disclosed years after it occurs.”

Catron and Locust will be required to register and comply with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act upon release.

Honorable Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearings and Catron and Locust were remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence. Assistant United States Attorney Nicole Paladino prosecuted the case.
