Former Tulsa Police officer pleads guilty to child pornography, sexual exploitation of a child

TULSA - A former Tulsa police officer has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography and the sexual exploitation of a child.

Noel McFadden, 71, was sentenced to 30 years in prison. After his release from prison, McFadden will have a lifetime of supervised release and must pay restitution of $18,365.94, Department of Justice officials said.

Officials said McFadden admitted in April 2017 that he coerced a minor under the age of 12 to take pictures of her genitals with his cellphone.

“At sentencing, several relatives of the victim spoke about the harm inflicted by McFadden and one of his victims, only 9 years old, made a powerful statement in open court where she emphasized she was not a victim, but a strong survivor," Assistant Unites States Assistant Jeffrey A. Gallant said. "She stood up to McFadden and insured no other children would ever be harmed again by him.”
