SEMINOLE COUNTY, Oklahoma - A former Wewoka police officer has been sentenced after pleading guilty to a felony count of second-degree rape.

The charge stemmed from an investigation by the Attorney General's Office uncovering that former officer Trever Blackwell had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl while he was on duty between August 2011 and January 2012.

According to the AG's office, the crimes took place in Seminole County while the victim was participating in the Wewoka Police Department's Explorer Program. Some of the crimes occurred while the victim was riding in Blackwell's patrol car as a part of the program, investigators said.

Blackwell was sentenced last Thursday to five years in prison and 10 years of supervised probation, and he must also register as a sex offender upon release from prison.

The charges were prosecuted by attorneys with the Multicounty Grand Jury Unit of the Attorney General's Office.
