Lawton Sex Offender Sentenced to 35 Years in Prison for Committing Child Sexual Crimes

A child predator and sex offender from Lawton was sentenced today for Attempted Coercion and Enticement of a Minor; Coercion and Enticement of a Minor; Production of Child Pornography; and two counts of Tampering with a Witness by Corrupt Persuasion, announced U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

U.S. District Judge John F. Heil, III, sentenced Justin Eli Muncy, 47, to 420 months imprisonment, followed by lifetime supervised release. Upon his release, Muncy will also be required to register as a sex offender.

“Justin Muncy is a predator who was using cell phone applications to find children,” said U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson. “The Department of Justice is committed to the safety and well-being of our children. The DOJ partners with programs like Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force to help educate the public on tools and techniques to help fight against predators.”

State Court records show that in 2015 Muncy was convicted of Lewd or Indecent Proposals to [a] Child Under 16 and Enticing a Child Under 16 into a Secluded Place. Muncy was sentenced to a 15-year suspended sentence and required to register as a
sex offender.

In 2019, Muncy was then convicted of Failing to Register as a Sex Offender in State Court. In that case, he was sentenced to one year imprisonment. Muncy served three months and the remaining nine months were suspended.

Then in January of 2022, Muncy began contacting a person he believed was 14 years old to engage in sexual activity. The 14-year-old was an undercover Tulsa County Sheriff Deputy. Muncy sent several photos of his penis and requested nude photos in return.

After being arrested in 2022, the investigation revealed that Muncy persuaded and coerced a second child victim who had not attained the age of 16 years, to produce and share sexually explicit images. While in jail, Muncy directed another person to file false police reports and to hide his cell phone in hopes of misleading investigators.

Muncy is a citizen of the Comanche Nation and he will remain in custody pending transfer to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

The Homeland Security Investigations, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, and the Comanche County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ashley Robert and Leah Paisner prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood (PSC), a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. U.S. Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section leads PSC, which marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children and identifies and rescues victims.
