OK Attorney Who Negotiated Plea Deal in Rape Case Resigns

Updated:

    An Oklahoma assistant prosecutor has resigned after negotiating a plea deal that gave probation to a man accused of raping a 13-year-old girl.
    Murray County Oklahoma assistant DA David Pyle said he didn't insist on prison because the defendant was legally blind. 
     Instead, 36-year-old defendant Benjamin Lawrence Petty was sentenced to 15 years' probation after pleading guilty to first-degree rape and other charges.
      Investigators say Petty attacked the girl in 2016 at a Texas church camp, where Perry was a cook.
     Pyle said the girl's family agreed to the plea deal. But the family says they weren't given other options.
