State House Suspends Page Program As MWC PD Investigates Sexual Assault Report
A page in the state program has accused another page of sexual assault, Midwest City police said.
The incident reportedly happened Tuesday night at a motel near the state Capitol.
A school reported the incident to Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers who turned over the case to Midwest City.
Midwest City police received the report on Wednesday morning.
Thursday afternoon, in an email to House members, House Speaker Charles McCall said he's suspending the page program pending an internal review.
The Oklahoma Senate has a separate page program, and Senate President Pro Tem Greg Treat says he plans to review the program's protocols to make sure students are protected.
