TULSA, OK (KJRH) — A former Mounds coach, who is currently pleading "not guilty" of raping a student in Creek County, is being charged with second-degree rape and sexual battery in Tulsa County. Callen Brooksher was also charged with second-degree rape and sexual battery in Creek County after an investigation in 2018.

Tulsa County court documents say Brooksher had an ongoing relationship with a junior in high school for months; the documents say the relationship mostly took place in Glenpool. A woman, who was 17 at the time, says she and Brooksher had a sexual relationship while she was in high school. She said the two "continued to have sex almost daily for months" in 2014. The woman says it happened nearly 100 times in total while she was in high school.

“The point of the matter is this: he’s back in jail," said Mounds Police Chief Antonio Porter. "And we just pray this does not happen again to somebody - being assaulted or violated.”

This was all uncovered during an investigation that began in March of 2018, when an officer found Brooksher with a student inside a vehicle. Brooksher was charged in Creek County with second-degree rape and sexual battery. He’s plead "not guilty" to those charges - his attorney telling 2 Works for You he expects the case in Creek County to go away, and instead be moved to Tulsa County.

Mounds Superintendent Doran Smith told 2 Works for You the events in question happened before his tenure, so the new allegations were "news to him". He said he had no comment when asked what steps are being taken to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
