A Muldrow pawn shop owner has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of sexual battery. The charge was filed in Sequoyah County District Court on Aug. 5, and Ronnie Woodrow Wear, 62, entered a not guilty plea on Aug. 17. He is free on a $5,000 bond.
Wear owns Wear Pawn in Muldrow.
A former female employee, who said she worked at the pawn shop from October 2013 to June 27 this year, told police Wear touched her in suggestive ways, which were allegedly captured on video at the shop, and texted her as many as 40 to 50 times per day.
Wear's next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 15 on a disposition docket.
