The director of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Center in Enid, Oklahoma was arrested Monday after being accused of molesting a child.
Nathan Bowen, 32, faces charges of forcible sodomy, as well as two counts of lewd or indecent proposals to a child under 16, according to a report from EnidNews.com.
The report said that a teen's mother complained to the Enid Police Department, saying that her son had been molested at the GLBT Center.
In a statement from Bowen's attorney, Brittany Novotney, Bowen declares his innocence, saying that the teenager accusing him was actually the one who instigated the incident.
The statement, according to a NewsOK report, says that Bowen believes that forensic examination of the evidence will prove that he did not have sex with the accuser.
Bowen is being held in the Garfield County jail, and his bail was set at $250,000, according to the NewsOK report. He does not have any prior offenses on his record.
