Former Hughes County Sheriff's deputy pleads guilty to sex crimes

HOLDENVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- A former Hughes County sheriff's deputy pleads guilty to four felony sex crimes for touching several teenage boys during the past five years.

Michael Allen Carter pleaded guilty on Tuesday to lewd molestation and three counts of sexual battery. He also pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

A sentencing hearing has been set for October 25th.

Carter's jury trial was set to begin Thursday. He's accused of touching four teenage boys and providing beer to two others.

He was arrested in November, 2004.

Carter's plea for the four felonies was an Alford plea of guilty, which is like pleading guilty without admitting guilt. His plea for the misdemeanor charges was a regular guilty plea.
