Oklahoma lawyer arrested for duping inmate into trading sex for ‘representation’
An Oklahoma City attorney was arrested and accused of coercing a local county prisoner into performing sexual acts after tricking her into thinking he was representing her.
KOCO-TV reported on Wednesday that 69-year-old Frank Kirk was arrested following a sting operation involving the unidentified woman. He was reportedly caught smuggling a sex toy, a cell phone and a lubricant into Oklahoma County jail to bring to the woman.
Kirk had allegedly been contacted to serve as the woman’s lawyer three months ago, but never filled out the proper paperwork to become her attorney of record. However, instead of informing her of that, he allegedly told her she could repay him with the sex acts instead of with money.
The woman did not learn about Kirk’s alleged deception until she was contacted on Monday by the county public defender’s office to tell her it had reached a plea agreement for her drug charges.
The Oklahoman reported that Kirk allegedly told the woman to expose herself, touch him inappropriately and masturbate in front of him over the course of six different visits during the three-month period.
Kirk is accused of five counts of offering to engage in acts of lewdness and possessing a cellphone in a penal institution.
