Former Norman resident and University of Oklahoma student Brock Mason, 24, has been sent back to Oklahoma from his deployment in Japan to face 11 felony charges stemming from a sexual abuse allegation.
“The NCIS, the naval intelligence, got a tip from a cyber line that some child porn had been downloaded onto his computer,” District Attorney Greg Mashburn told NewsChannel 4. “So they started digging deeper, started looking at his Facebook, saw some messages with some children here in Norman.”
Mason had befriended a single mother and her preteen twin boys while attending OU last year. He allegedly forced the boys to perform sexual acts in exchange for gifts, made them watch porn and gave them drugs.
It doesn’t look like Mason will actually be home for Christmas after all; he was thrown in the slammer Dec. 1, is due to appear in court Dec. 17 and his bail is $750,000.
