Investigators with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office arrested Charles Guess, 37 former Macomb firefighter from Noble, Oklahoma, on July 24, 2020 for sexual communication with a minor in Canadian County.  Guess instead was communicating with an undercover Sheriff's Investigator using a popular social media website.

Guess talked with the undercover investigator since June 2020 and the conversation became sexual in nature.  Guess began talking to the decoy about having sex with her and if she had a problem with being with older guys.  Guess also described a fantasy he had about the decoy including performing oral sex on her.   As the conversation continued Guess described in detail the various sexual acts he was going to perform when they met.

During the investigation, Guess stated he had other sexual/dating relationships with underage females.  When this information was provided, a meeting was setup as quick as possible.  Guess made the plan to travel to Gold’s Gym in Canadian County to pick up what he believed was a 14-year-old female for sex.  Guess’ plan was to take her to a nearby park to rape her in his truck and then take her to Sonic afterwards. 

When Guess arrived at the meeting point, Canadian County Deputies quickly surrounded Charles and made an arrest.  Guess was apprehended without incident and interviewed. 

“I’m extremely happy with this arrest, and I’m praying we can identify the other under-aged girls Guess told us he had sex with so he can be charged for those crimes as well,” said Chris West, Canadian County Sheriff.

Guess admitted to investigators he was talking sexually to what he believed was a 14-year-old female and planned to have sex with her.  Guess stated he knew it was illegal to talk to a child sexually and to have sex with a minor. Guess had in his possession at the time of his arrest a photograph a 13-year-old female in his wallet he obtained from his church.  Investigators are currently working on the identity of the child and to see if she is a victim.

Guess was booked into the Canadian County Jail on the charge of Lewd or Indecent Proposals or Acts to Child and is currently waiting on his bond to be set.
