Update: Cashion Oklahoma Reserve Police Officer Paul Lamarche Arrested For Child Molestation

LOGAN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA – A reserve police officer from Cashion was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of lewd or indecent proposals or acts with a child younger than 16, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Paul Lamarche, 39, was arrested at about 4 p.m. in his home in the 3300 block of North Highway 77 in Logan County, according to the OSBI. Lamarche was booked into the Logan County Jail, agents said.

OSBI agents said Lamarche put his hands down the pants of a girl about 10 years ago, when the girl was still under 16. Agents said Lamarche knew the girl who reported the incident.

Lamarche faced a judge Wednesday afternoon, court officials said.

According to court documents, Lamarche “began rubbing (the girl’s) back,” then slowly “moved his hands down to her bottom.” The girl said Lamarche “then put his hands under {her} clothes and began rubbing her bottom skin on skin.”

But Irvin Box, Lamarche’s lawyer, said the accusation is suspicious because Lamarche is going through a divorce and the girl claiming to have been sexually molested by him suddenly appeared 10 years after the incident happened.

“Anytime there’s a divorce case where allegations that occurred 10 years ago suddenly surface, and their nature — rubbing the back and buttocks of a person under 16 at the time, I think she was 15 — are awfully suspicious,” Box said.

Lamarche said remembers the incident, but he only touched the girl’s back and shoulders.

The investigation is ongoing. Authorities said there may be more victims involved.

Lamarche would be able to remain out of jail on a $10,000 bond, court officials said.
