Marlatt pleads guilty to assault and battery Legislation could leave long-lived legacy
Former State Sen. Bryce Marlatt, R-Woodward, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and battery last Fri. Mar. 8, in a plea agreement with Oklahoma County prosecutors to settle Marlatt’s felony sexual assault charge filed on Sep. 6, 2017.
The original charge was filed in connection with a Jun. 26, 2017 incident where Marlatt was alleged to have groped a female Uber driver and tried kissing her on the neck as she drove him to a bar in Oklahoma City.
Marlatt was fined $500, will be placed on probation for 90 days, and will pay $50 to the state victims compensation fund, plus court costs as a result of his plea. Prosecutors reported that the victim agreed to the plea agreement and that Marlatt admitted that he made unwanted advances and made lewd comments with the female Uber driver in 2017.
