Skiatook Man Sentenced for Strangling Partner and Witness Tampering



U.S. District Judge John D. Russell sentenced Jesse Wayne Caughron, 38, to 144 months imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release. Caughron pled guilty to Assault of an Intimate Dating Partner by Strangling, Suffocating, and Attempting to Strangle and Suffocate in Indian County; and Witness Tampering.

According to court documents, Caughron accused his partner of cheating on him. He then suffocated her with a pillow, hit her repeatedly, and strangled her until she lost consciousness, causing a life-threatening injury. When the victim obtained a protective order against Caughron, he violated it sending harassing and threatening messages. He further attempted to mislead the victim and prevent her from testifying.

Caughron is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. He was previously released on bond and ordered not to have contact with the victim. However, Caughron violated the no-contact order and was detained for violating the conditions of his release. He will remain in custody pending transfer to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

The FBI and Tulsa Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacey P. Todd and Stephen Scaife prosecuted the case.
