BB)--An Enid man has been charged with three felony counts of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16 after a report of child sexual abuse was made to the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office earlier this year. Enid News and Eagle reports 21 year-old Brandon Woodruff was charged this week with the felonies, which are punishable by imprisonment for not less than 25 years. The abuse reportedly occurred about five years ago in Covington when the girl was 5 years old and Woodruff was 16 to 17 years old. During an interview with Covington Police and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in March, Woodruff reportedly admitted to having sexually assaulted the girl. An arrest warrant for Woodruff was issued on Sept. 15, but authorities said he has not been located yet. His bond is set at $75,000. The girl’s mother was charged with one count of failure to report child abuse, and an arrest warrant for the mother was also issued earlier this week.
