Convicted Sex Offender Arrested in Oklahoma City Child Rape

Police arrested a registered Oklahoma sex offender last week in connection with the Oklahoma City rape of a six-year-old boy.  Lucifer Scott Hawkins, 30, was on probation for twice failing to comply with the Oklahoma sex offender registry requirements at the time of his arrest.

Rape Charge Details

Hawkins's arrest came as police were responding to a Crime Stoppers tip to check on him at a home in northwest Oklahoma City.  As officers were en route to the home, dispatchers received a 911 call reporting a child rape at the same residence.  Police noticed a car leaving the area and pulled it over, finding Hawkins inside. 

After interviewing the registered sex offender, police arrested him on a complaint of Oklahoma rape of a child under 16.  At the end of last week, Hawkins was being held in the Oklahoma County Jail on $100,000 bond.

According to police, the initial tip to which they were responding was not related to the rape of the child. Lucifer Hawkins was required to register as a sex offender after being convicted of a 1997 rape of a 5-year-old girl in Delaware County. 

In that case, he was charged with two counts of lewd acts with a minor and two counts of first degree rape.  His lawyer was able to negotiate a plea agreement in which all charges were dismissed or suspended except for one count of first degree rape. 

Hawkins was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his child rape conviction, but was released in May 2006. In 2008 and again in 2009, Hawkins was convicted of two counts of failure to comply with the Oklahoma sex offender registry.  His sentences for the 2008 counts and the 2009 counts were to be served concurrently.  He spent two months in jail for failing to register and began probation for a four year suspended sentence in January 2010.
