Affidavit: Former Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputy admitted to raping woman
OKLAHOMA CITY – We’re learning more information about a former Oklahoma County deputy accused of first-degree rape.
According to the probable cause affidavit, a victim went to the Oklahoma City Police Department to report that she had been raped by Euitt Sharp, who was an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputy at the time of the alleged crime.
The victim told authorities that she had known Sharp for over a year and had a sexual relationship with him in the past. However, she said that she had told him that she just wanted to be friends after that.
On Oct. 27, the victim claims that Sharp came over and then went to her bedroom to lie down. When the victim asked what he was doing, the victim claims that Sharp started kissing her, even though she told him, ‘no.’
The victim said that Sharp allegedly straddled her and raped her, while she tried to get him off of her and continued to tell him, ‘no.’
According to the affidavit, when the victim told Sharp that he had raped her, Sharp reportedly said, “What are you going to do, call county?”
When he was confronted by detectives, Sharp reportedly admitted to the crime and said that he knew she told him no but that he was “going to finish first.”
Sharp was arrested on a complaint of first-degree rape.
“Immediately after learning of Sharp’s confession and subsequent arrest, I terminated his employment,” said Sheriff John Whetsel. “We have zero tolerance for anyone who betrays the trust of our citizens. He wore a badge, and I am extremely upset and disappointed in his conduct.”
Sharp had been with the department since February 2014.
