An Oklahoma rape case is drawing national attention and outrage.
Last month, 64 year old David Harold Earls pleaded no contest to raping a 4 year old girl. Because the girl behaved erratically in court and was not able to testify and the limited physical evidence, the District Attorney's office worked out a plea deal with Earls. He was sentenced to one year in jail and 19 years probation. Because of time already served he is now scheduled to get out of prison in September. Earls has terminal cancer and will be on monitored release once he is out of jail.
The mother of the four year old victim tells "The Oklahoman" that the plea deal was best for her child.
Oklahoma state representative Mike Ritze is co-sponsoring a resolution to remove the judge in the case, Thomas Bartheld, from the bench.
Judge Bartheld has not responded to our calls for his reaction to the call for his removal.
David Harold Earls' daughter Denise is coming forward accusing her father of sexually assaulting her when she was a child. Earls has not responded to that accusation.
