Brock Gabriel Mason, 25, was sentenced to 18 years in prison Tuesday for two counts of lewd acts to a child, a lewd proposal to a child and two counts of forcible sodomy after entering a blind plea, court records show. A blind plea is just a plea of guilt without any plea bargain for a lighter sentence.
Mason also received a 10-year suspended sentence for soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by use of technology and one year in prison for contributing to the delinquency of minors.
Records show four other similar felony counts were dismissed, including three counts of lewd acts and soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by use of technology.
Mason was on deployment in Japan, but shipped back to Oklahoma in December 2013 after being charged with the felony counts involving a pre-teen boy. Records show the incident occurred between January 2012 and November 2013, at which time Mason was a student at the University of Oklahoma.
The boy was between the ages of 11 and 13 when the incidents occurred, records show.
Felony information filed shows Mason forced the boy to look at pornography, gave him marijuana, performed oral sex and masturbated him and forced the boy to perform oral sex on him.
All of the acts occurred in Norman including at the Country Village Apartments, in Mason's vehicle while driving in Norman, Mason's residence on Eagle Drive and Days Inn on Interstate Drive, the arrest warrant states.
According to media reports, Mason is originally from Shenandoah, Iowa.
