Muldrow Man Enters Guilty Plea in U.S. Court

A Muldrow man pleaded guilty to possession of material involving the sexual exploitation of minors last week in U.S. District Court in Muskogee. A court official said James Christopher Cooke, 38, faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, five years to life on supervision and a fine of up to $250,000. The charge was a result from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Cooke was indicted in March. The indictment alleged that from September to December 2012, Cooke knowingly possessed and attempted to possess materials that contained visual depictions involving the use of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, which had been transported in interstate commerce by computer. The defendant will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending sentencing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Snow represented the United States in the case.
