A Muldrow man faces a felony warrant for failure to comply with sex offender registration after a check of his social media revealed inappropriate photos.
The warrant was issued July 25 against James Murphy Cummings Jr., 52, after a Sheriff’s Department investigator found images of Cummings with minor children on his Facebook page, the report shows.
On March 8, according to the report, Cummings refused to sign a required State of Oklahoma Department of Corrections Computer Use Agreement for Sex Offenders.
When the investigator arrived at Cummings’ home to do a sex offender compliance check, the man reportedly came out the door when she knocked, then closed and locked the door behind him. The investigator then asked if she could enter the home to verify that he was actually living there, but Cummings refused, stating that he would rather go to jail.
Cummings was convicted in Logan County (Arkansas) Circuit Court in July 2002 of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct; and for producing, directing or promoting sexual performance.
He was released from the Arkansas Department of Corrections and transferred to Oklahoma in April 2003. Cummings has been registering in Sequoyah County since March 10, 2005, when he was a level 3 sex offender. On March 18, 2014, Cummings’ status was changed to level 2.
Bond has been set at $5,000.
