Sex Offender Captured

A wanted sex offender from New York was found living in Lawton and is now behind bars.

Peter Green was convicted in 2011 for sexual abuse.  Police said the 38-year-old move to Lawton in August 2013, after he developed a relationship with a woman there through the social media. 

Investigators found Green after following an anonymous tip.  Green was living under an assumed identity of Damel Burton. 

He is currently being held in the City jail and police said it’s too early to tell whether he will face charges and serve time in Oklahoma first, or whether he will be extradited back to New York immediately.
