Former Teacher Arrested on Charges of Sexual Abuse

Posted:

A former school teacher from Oklahoma is behind bars on charges of sexual abuse. The US Marshals Metro Fugitive Task Force in Oklahoma City joined forces with deputies from the Eastern District of Texas.  Together they found the fugitive right here in Texoma.

34 year-old Brandon Brown of New Castle, Oklahoma was arrested in Gordonville, Texas.  He was found hiding out in a relatives lake home.

Dustin Williams, US Marshal and PIO, tell us, "We got information that Brandon Brown was at a relatives address or lake house.  We attempted to go to the residence and we saw him driving and we were able to stop him."

Brown was arrested on one count of child sex abuse including producing, procuring, and distributing child pornography and two counts of sexual child abuse. Those 3 counts of sexual abuse were charges from law enforcement in Oklahoma.

This morning Brown is sitting in the Grayson County Jail waiting extradition to Oklahoma. He is facing charges in Texas on a warrant for fugitive from justice and on 3 counts of sexual abuse in Oklahoma.

This is not the first time Brown has faced charges.  He had previous warrants for threatening a judge and a Cleveland County District Attorney.
