Deputy Accused of Sexual Assault Resigns


A Tulsa  Sheriff's Deputy is accused of sexually assaulting two women at a Tulsa County home.

Tulsa County Maj. Shannon Clark says the 26-year-old man was taken into custody Tuesday night. He was being held on $65,000 bond for sexual assault and battery complaints.

Tulsa County Under Sheriff Tim Albin says 26-year-old Gerald Nuckolls submitted his resignation. In a statement, Deputy Nuckolls said he had exposed himself to other women and has a problem being around pretty women.  Under Sheriff Albin asked for any other victims to please come forward.

This all came to light when woman told authorities the officer came to her home Tuesday morning, saying he was investigating a 911 hang-up. She said he searched her house, touched her and exposed himself. Another woman said the deputy forced her to touch him in his patrol car.

A state trooper was arrested Monday, accused of rape, and an Oklahoma City officer is accused of sexually assaulting at least eight women.
