A Muldrow man who reportedly passed out on a couch at someone else’s home has been charged with three felonies, including first-degree burglary.
Colton Dwayne Cheater, 30, also faces additional charges of failure to comply with sex offender registration and for being a sex offender living within 2,000 feet of a school.
On Feb. 18, an officer with the Gore Police Department received a report of a burglary. In a statement, the victim said she walked out of her bedroom and saw an arm covered in tattoos hanging off her couch. Cheater was arrested at the scene.
He faces up to 20 years in prison on the burglary charge, while the failure to comply with sex offender registration is punishable by incarceration in a correctional facility for up to five years and a fine of up to $5,000. The penalty for being a sex offender living within 2,000 feet of a school carries a punishment of up to three years in prison and/or a fine of up to $3,000. His bond was set at $10,000.
