Sequoyah County softball coach arrested for child pornography
SEQUOYAH COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) -- An Oklahoma coach is facing child pornography charges after a months-long investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies.
On Wednesday, Tulsa County deputies assigned to Homeland Security Investigations, Sequoyah County deputies, Muldrow police and members of the District 27 District Attorney's Office served a search warrant at a Muldrow home belonging to Ryan Offineer, 41. With help from the Tulsa Police Department's Cyber Crimes Unit, the TCSO/HSI Task Force has spent months investigating online purchases from a website used to sell child pornography.
While serving a search warrant at Offineer's home, deputies say they recovered child pornography involving young teenage girls. Offineer was arrested for possession and procurement of child pornography. Investigators are still reviewing evidence and say more charges, potentially in federal court, are possible.
According to the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, Offineer coaches a traveling girls softball team in the Muldrow area. He is not affiliated with Muldrow Public Schools, according to the superintendent.
Investigators believe Offineer may have preyed on girls with whom he had contact. They're asking potential victims to call (918) 596-5601.
