Charges come after OBN investigation


OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today filed charges on Jeramy Gregston after an undercover investigation by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) led to his arrest on allegations he was soliciting sex from a minor.


Gregston, 44, was charged in Oklahoma County with one count of attempting to engage in child prostitution and one count of soliciting sexual conduct with a minor by use of technology.


Attorney General Hunter applauded OBN investigators for their work throughout the investigation and for apprehending the suspect.


“I appreciate our law enforcement partners at the OBN for their work that led to these charges,” Attorney General Hunter said. “These are disturbing allegations and crimes against children are intolerable. My office remains dedicated to protecting Oklahoma’s children by assisting and partnering with fellow law enforcement agencies to ensure those who commit these types of crimes are held to account.”


According to OBN’s affidavit, Gregston is a teacher at Deer Creek High School. After learning he was interested in having sex with a minor, an undercover OBN agent posed as a 17-year-old girl.

 

Gregston agreed to have sex with the undercover agent for $150 at a specific location. When he arrived at the location, he was taken into custody.


When interviewed at OBN headquarters in Oklahoma City, Gregston confessed to speaking with a female, who he believed to be 17-years-old and setting up the sex date.


The charges filed today are in conjunction with OBN’s arrest of Gregston on March 30.


If convicted, he faces fines and prison time. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
