A former school security guard was sentenced Wednesday to 17 years in prison for molesting a girl he met at Hale High School.
Tracy Sullins, 49, pleaded no contest in April to one count of lewd molestation. He did not have a deal with prosecutors to govern his punishment.
Tulsa County District Judge William Kellough imposed a split 20-year sentence that requires Sullins to serve a three-year probation after he is released from prison.
In 2007, Tulsa Public Schools officials said Sullins was a security guard who substituted for only a day or two at two or three Tulsa schools in 2006.
But a district spokeswoman said in April that officials had learned that the employment information they received about Sullins in 2007 from their contract security firm, Securitas, was only partly true.
The spokeswoman said the district had learned that Sullins was the lead guard at Hale between 2004 and 2005.
According to court records, the girl told police she was 14 when Sullins began paying her to watch him masturbate via a Web camera, to have lunch with him and then, when she was 15, to fondle him in his truck while it was parked in front of her Tulsa home.
Sullins is required by law to serve at least 85 percent of the 17-year prison term — nearly 15 years — before he is eligible for parole or release. He has been in the Tulsa Jail for 11 months, records show.
Sullins was arrested in 2006 at his Sapulpa residence after an investigation by a Missouri detective.
