Chandler - A prosecutor is recommending a deferred sentence for a retired judge who pleaded no contest to molesting a girl at his home in April 1996.
Robert L. Foster, 72, is scheduled for sentencing July 28 on the felony lewd molestation conviction, a spokeswoman in the Lincoln County court clerk's office said Monday.
Foster was scheduled for trial Monday but pleaded no contest Thursday before Kay County District Judge D.W. Boyd in Newkirk. Boyd was appointed to handle the case when local judges recused.
Foster was charged in May 1997 with lewd molestation and procuring lewd exhibition of a minor. The latter charge was dismissed after a preliminary hearing in October.
Information filed in the case said Foster knew the girl from a Meeker church, where she was an altar girl and he was a deacon.
The incident occurred when the girl's parents allowed her and her younger sister to spend the night with Foster after seeing a movie with him in Oklahoma City, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Lincoln County sheriff's deputy Rick McAmis.
District Attorney Kay Christiansen has recommended Foster be given a five-year deferred sentence, with a year of supervised probation. She also has asked that Foster be fined $ 500, pay $ 1,000 to a victim's fund, perform 100 hours of community service and receive 25 hours of counseling from a psychiatrist within one year.
Foster was the Lincoln County judge from 1951 until 1969, then served as an associate district judge until 1985.
Christiansen and Foster's attorney didn't return phone calls Monday.
