Man Sentenced for Inappropriately Touching a Customer at a Sapulpa Convenience Store

A Tulsa man was sentenced today in federal court for inappropriately touching a 17-year-old customer at a Sapulpa convenience store, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

U.S. District Judge Gregory K. Frizzell sentenced Sajjad Ali Khan, 51, of Tulsa, to five years of probation with six months on home detention. The defendant is also required to register as a sex offender.

On Feb. 2, 2021, Kahn pleaded guilty to abusive sexual contact in Indian Country. In the blind plea, Khan admitted that he engaged in abusive sexual contact by intentionally touching the victim’s breasts without her permission on Sept. 15, 2020. The crime occurred at a convenience store owned and operated by Khan, which is across the street from a public park and swimming pool.

The FBI, Sapulpa Police Department, and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marianne Hardcastle prosecuted the case.
