Bristow man charged with sexual abuse headed to prison

ALLISON — It’s ten years in prison for a Bristow man who pleaded guilty to sexual abuse.

39-year-old Owen DeJesus was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child, all Class B felonies. A criminal complaint states that DeJesus sexually abused two girls under the age of 12 multiple times over the course of a year’s time. DeJesus was arrested in July of 2022.

DeJesus faced up to 75 years in prison if he would have been convicted of all three Class B felonies, but in late November he filed a written plea to one count of lascivious acts with a child, a Class C felony.

District Judge Chris Foy sentenced DeJesus to ten years in prison during a sentencing hearing held on Monday.
