EDMOND, Okla. – Edmond Santa Fe’s beloved janitor surrendered himself to authorities Thursday afternoon.
Sam Selig, better known as “Santa Fe Sam”, is facing five felony charges including lewd acts with his own young relatives and child pornography.
He was booked into the Logan County Jail just after 2:00 p.m.
Selig worked as Edmond Santa Fe’s custodian and sports announcer for years.
Officials say Selig resigned this past April.
In a Facebook post before his last day at Santa Fe, he announced his resignation adding, “I have made a mistake in my life. A very horrible mistake. One that I cannot and will not run from.”
Logan County Chief Deputy Rich Stephens says Selig initially denied he’d molested one young relative, but later admitted to it and said he also molested another.
It was DHS that brought the allegations to Logan County’s attention, but they believe one of the victim’s parents knew about it but did not call police.
Court documents say they talked about the situation as a family and decided they were not going to report it.
