Facility worker charged with sex crimes on mental patients

Bookmark and Share

Update – The case and charges were dismissed on Sept. 20, 2013 after the death of Gerald William “Butch” Perry Jr.

Original Story

A facility maintenance man at a Guthrie living center has been booked into the Logan County jail and is facing five felony sexual counts, including rape and forcible sodomy on mental patients.

Gerald William “Butch” Perry Jr. is accused of first degree rape, sexual battery and rape by instrumentation upon a person incapable through mental illness or any unsoundness of mind.

Gerald William “Butch” Perry Jr. is accused of first degree rape, sexual battery and rape by instrumentation upon a person(s) incapable through mental illness or any unsoundness of mind.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a total of five female patients, whom live Guthrie’s Westview Living Center, were named as victims. One victim is stated as non-communicative while the other four victims are at a middle school level.

The crimes were listed to occur between February 2008 to May 6, 2012. Guthrie Police were dispatched on May 6 to the living center.

Perry is set to be formally charged today at 1:30 p.m. inside the Logan County Courthouse.

The report says a victim disclosed to a staff member that Perry had touched her inappropriately on May 6 and is what sparked the internal investigation.

Perry, 60, was considered a caretaker as part of the staff of the facility and had been employed since February 2008.

In part, the statement reveals Perry would go the females room and lock the door and make sexual demands. One victim said Perry would sometimes give her $5 or $10 and instruct her not to tell anyone.

In one scenario, Perry is accused of bringing one patient into a room to perform a sexual act on him in front of another victim.

Perry is facing five counts: first degree rape, three counts of forcible oral sodomy and rape by instrumentation. In each sodomy case Perry faces up to 20 years in prison. The rape charge is punishable up to 15 years and faces five years to life without parole for the charge of rape by instrumentation.

    He is accused of doing this for the last four years…surely others that have worked there during that time were aware of what he was doing and chose to look the other way and say nothing. How could this go on for four years and nobody else that worked there noticed???

      That’s probably why he picked vulnerable mentally ill victims. Unreliable witnesses. Hopefully this brings awareness to mental health clinics and can prevent it from happening in the future.

      As for “Butch”, I hope he rots in jail for a long time.

    This is my father and, it’s a damn shame that he would do this to these helpless human beings! But, he’s going to reap what he’s sown! I have nothing positive to say about this because, I just found out that he’s done this to one of his daughters, being mysister then, he tried to do the exact to another!I merely say, give him exactly what he deserve!

      That’s why he left his home town and came to Oklahoma cause of his past in his home town. He was always talkin about his past in his home town when me and my husband lived with him and my mom. Then we had to move out cause Gearld pulled a gun on my husband and now that his in jail. I tell my mom he needs to stay in there and he raped them people that has a mind of a 2 or 3 year old kid me and my mom aren’t talkin. I no a lot about Gearld. I wish my mom would of never meet Gearld. O ya and Gearld never told my mom he was still married that he up and left his wife. My mom had to find that out on her own. His wife called Gearlds cell phone one day and my mom called his phone and he didn’t pick up and she new his password to his voicemail and hear his wife left a message for Gearld to call his wife back. In Guthrie jail they only let u stay there for one year and then they send them to prison. I no he will die in prison

        Yes!, he played my mother very cold! He had the nerves to get my mother strung out on crack and herion, leaving her homeless then, have the audacity to move to another state, be with another woman! So, I have a VERY BAD taste in my heart for him and, I pray your mother wakes up before she gets burned too! In fact, I have my mother here with me, in Des Moines, Iowa, just getting her out of rehab and, getting her life back together! She wanted to say a few things on here, about him but, I decided to do it, on her behalf! He is still legally married to him and, I’ve been begging her to divorce his ass! Good luck to you and, to your family!

      I see you must have not had your “Father” within your life and, you’re DESPERATE to have one!? I know far, far more about this nigga than you or anyone will ever know! But, you’re going to have to see and learn, on your very own! I just talked to 2 of my sisters, 1 that he actually did molest,Sharnita and, the oldest of all of his children, Sabrina and, both of them gave to me, their brother, accurate accounts of what he did to them! As well, the both of them has books, about exactly what Butch did to them and, how he ruined their lives, robbed them of their innocence and, how he destroyed what was supposed to be PRECIOUS to them, a Father and daughter relationship! So, when they get out I will assuredly inform you so you can read it, for yourself and, pass it on to your mother! Until then, good luck, with your Dad!

Both of my dads have been there for me. and im sorry but i dont belive for a second that my dad -butch- touched any of ur sisters i know he didnt touch any of these girls that does nothing but lie at westview. so anyone that reads this all of this stuff that is being said is not true he wouldnt do something like this

        Well well well this is jp (maine) n it looks like to me that his son ” man” is really out of line n out of his mind to do this lying. Man how about u talk about yourself and let everyone know who u r. Which is a multiple time felon, just recently just got out of jail for numerous offenses which r all felonies. Been a drug addict for thirty some odd yrs n is still currently. Man is a well known criminal n theif and will say n do anything to make someone look bad and bring someone down to his miserable low life level. Has ne one checked his creditablilty
