Tulsa Man, Oscar Manuel Cabrera-Westerheidy Convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact with a Minor

A Tulsa man pleaded guilty today in federal court for sexually abusing a minor, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

(STL.News) Oscar Manuel Cabrera-Westerheidy, 37, of Tulsa, pleaded guilty to abusive sexual contact with a minor under 12 years of age in Indian Country and abusive sexual contact with a minor between 12 and 16 years of age in Indian Country.

“Oscar Cabrera-Westerheidy took advantage of a position of trust and sexually abused this child for nine years.  Thankfully, in an act of courage done to protect others, she spoke out against her abuser,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.  “I am proud of the prosecutors in my office and our partners at the FBI and Tulsa Police Department who brought this predator to justice.”

Cabrera-Westerheidy admitted that from January 2011 through August 2020, he sexually abused a child for his own sexual gratification.  The victim disclosed the abuse to a parent out of concern that the defendant was caring for other children.

U.S. District Judge Claire V. Eagan set sentencing for June 17, 2021.

The FBI and Tulsa Police Department conducted the investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Chantelle D. Dial is prosecuting the case.  Ms.Dial is a prosecutor from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Washington.  She volunteered to assist prosecution efforts here in the Northern District of Oklahoma due to increased jurisdictional responsibilities regarding crimes involving Native American victims or defendants and that occur within the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and Cherokee Nation Reservations.  Ms. Dial recently extended six more months to assist with the mission.
