DURANT, Okla. - A former police chief was found guilty of sexually assaulting an intellectually disabled man multiple times in Bryan County.

"This person, Bryon Gordon, was a member of our family," said a family member of the victim. " We trusted him. We respected him. We loved him. We welcomed him into our family and it was a huge, huge betrayal."

Bryon Gordon was convicted of two felony sexual assault charges.

Court documents say Gordon allegedly sexually assaulted a 33-year-old man who is mentally disabled multiple times at the Choctaw Casino and Resort and at Gordon’s home in Pauls Valley.

News 4 has confirmed that Gordon previously served as the police chief in Boswell. He also served as a deputy in Garvin County and worked for the Paoli Police Department.

The jury only took an hour to render the guilty verdict and recommended a sentence of 10 years in prison.

Formal sentencing will be in June.
