Another victim's accusation has put a suspended Tulsa Public Schools assistant principal back in jail.
Robert Yerton, Jr. now faces five counts of sexual abuse and lewd molestation involving four children.
The latest victim says he was molested at Disney Elementary, between August 2001 and February 2002. He was seven years old.
"Our suspect approached him in the bathroom, placed his hands on the victim's buttocks, reached around and touched his genitals while he was standing at the urinal," said Officer Jason Willingham, spokesperson for the Tulsa Police Department.
The court affidavit shows the victim didn't tell authorities about the alleged incident until May 2009. At the time the child couldn't identify the suspect.
During a forensic interview at the Justice Center on May 13, 2010, the affidavit shows the victim identified Yerton as his molester out of a photo line-up of Disney yearbook pictures. The photos were "complete classes with male teachers, no names or grades", the affidavit states.
"It's common for them to wait years to disclose," said Melissa Gantz, a forensic interviewer with the Child Abuse Network. "Fear of what the disclosure may do to their lives, to their family."
Gantz isn't surprised to hear another child has appeared.
"A lot of times, perpetrators that target children have a lot of victims by the time they're caught. So it's possible in every case we deal with that there will be more," said Gantz.
Police seized more evidence on Monday at the Garnett Church of Christ, where Yerton worked as a youth minister from 2002 to 2004. Detectives took his personnel file and a laptop.
Yerton's attorney, Richard O'Carroll filed a motion Tuesday to get the prosecutor, Jake Cain, disqualified from the case. O'Carroll accuses the DA's office and police of not following due process of law.
"What's going on here is a toxic environment," said O'Carroll. "We want rule of law to control, as opposed to a circumstance here where police are filing public documents and judges are issuing one sided orders."
O'Carroll also wants Yerton's bond reduced. It's currently at $650,000.
