A 54-year-old Broken Arrow man has been found guilty of two counts of lewd molestation and two counts of making lewd proposals to minors after police say he inappropriately touched two 13-year-old girls who were friends of his daughters.

Daniel W. Brantley molested both girls at his home in the 3700 block of South Dogwood Avenue on separate occasions last summer, according to court records.

Brantley approached both girls by massaging their shoulders then touched their breasts and rubbed himself against them, the documents state. He asked one of the girls to go to the bathroom and remove her underwear so they could "experiment more" and told the second girl that he could show her "new things," according to the documents.

The Broken Arrow man called one of the girls to try to persuade her to come back to his house while his daughters were away, records state. He was later confronted by the girl's father over the phone.

According to the girl's father, Brantley admitted to holding her hands and massaging her shoulders. He reportedly apologized for calling the girl to invite her over for more "experimenting."

Brantley was found guilty by a jury on Thursday and is being held without bond at Tulsa County Jail. His sentencing is scheduled for October 1.
