Two former staff members with Anadarko Public Schools have been charged with sexual battery, according to court documents.

In a statement from the district, Superintendent Jerry McCormick said the district takes the matter seriously and is committed to student safety.

According to court documents, one of the accused is former teacher Jim Pahcoddy, who is charged with eight counts of sexual battery and left the district in 2016. More recently, he worked for Boone Apache Public Schools but the district has not yet confirmed if he is still employed by the district.

Keith Knight is charged with one count of sexual battery and was the transportation director for Anadarko Public Schools until May 4 of this year. He had worked for the district since 2006 and began as a janitor, except for a nearly four-month stretch between 2018 and 2019.

Court documents say the alleged incidents happened in 2013.

Myles Stephenson Jr., a former teacher at Boone Apache Public Schools, was arrested in April and charged with lewd acts. 

One Anadarko alumni, who prefers to be anonymous for her safety, said she filed a report against Pahcoddy after Stephenson was arrested and saw more women coming forward with similar experiences in Caddo County.

Pahcoddy's attorney denies all of the allegations. Attorneys for Knight have not responded.
