TULSA, Okla. – Today, U.S. District Judge Sara E. Hill sentenced Corey Allan Pickup, Jr., 33, for Sexual Abuse of a Minor in Indian Country. Judge Hill ordered Pickup to serve the maximum sentence of 180 months imprisonment, followed by 25 years supervised release. Upon his release, Pickup will also be required to register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, in late 2018, a 12-year-old child victim was staying the night at a sleepover. While everyone was asleep, Pickup provided the child with alcohol and then sexually abused the child.

The FBI and Mayes County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan E. Michel prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood (PSC), a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. U.S. Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section leads PSC, which marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children and identifies and rescues victims.
