OKLAHOMA CITY - A judge on Monday delayed a preliminary hearing for a boy and a man accused of sexually assaulting a girl with Down syndrome, but not before accusing a third co-defendant of lying on the stand.
The hearing was continued until July 23 for Kody Matthew Koonce, 17, and Rusty Begay, 20, of Choctaw, who are accused of assaulting the girl Feb. 12 at a Choctaw residence.
Koonce is charged with rape and forcible oral sodomy, and Begay is charged with permitting sexual abuse to occur and forcible oral sodomy, according to court records.
A third co-defendant, Cody Gene McGee, 17, of Jones, was charged with rape and forcible oral sodomy. He pleaded guilty in May as part of a deal with prosecutors and testified Monday against the other two defendants.
