A Kingfisher County mother faces charges of enabling child sexual abuse.
On Tuesday, an OSBI agent filed an affidavit for one count of enabling child sexual abuse against Angela Mellissa Tuszynski, the mother of a girl who had allegedly been sexually assaulted by her 35-year old uncle, Matthew Mallory, over a five year period.
OSBI agents say the abuse began when the girl was 9, while she and her mother lived with the uncle in Okarche. OSBI says authorities began investigating their relationship more than a year ago when the girl was 14, Mallory and the girl ran to Texas. The two were found and brought back to Kingfisher County where Mallory faced multiple felony charges. He recently pled to four consecutive life sentences.
When interviewed early in the investigation by an OSBI agent, the victim’s mother described the relationship between her daughter and Mallory as more like husband and wife rather than uncle and niece. She further stated her daughter and Mallory slept in the same bedroom while she slept on the couch in the living room. Tuszynski also knew that Mallory was a lifetime registered sex offender and spent time in prison for sexually abusing a young female.
Canadian County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Tuszynski on the felony warrant on Wednesday.
