OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police have arrested one of their own for sexual crimes with a child.

Oklahoma City Police Captain Patrick Stewart said Sergeant Maurice Martinez was arrested on three complaints of forcible oral sodomy and two complaints of lewd and indecent proposal/acts with a child.

Stewart said an investigation into Martinez began after an anonymous source was made to DHS last week alleging he was involved in some type of sexual abuse.

According to Stewart, Martinez is a single parent with three adoptive sons and three foster sons ranging in age from 12 to 17 years old. Martinez has been in the foster program for 11 years.

Stewart said all six children have been removed from the home and are in DHS custody.

Martinez is an 18-year veteran with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

He's on paid administrative leave pending the investigation.
