ENID, Okla. — A former Enid man was arraigned Thursday on a charge of felony lewd molestation filed in 2006.

Gregory Allen Snow, 47, appeared Thursday on the charge filed Feb. 8, 2006, accusing him of "intentionally touching the private parts" of a then 12-year-old girl on or about June 26, 2005, when he was 33 years old.

Snow fled Enid for Tennessee after police began investigating allegations that Snow inappropriately touched the girl, according to documents filed in the case. However, police in Tennessee were contacted by an EPD detective and began their own investigation of Snow.

Tennessee's Sexual Offender Registry lists an Enid address for Snow, who is on parole for five counts of aggravated sexual battery there.

According to an affidavit filed in the Garfield County case, on June 26, 2005, a woman made a report to the Enid Police Department and said her 12-year-old daughter told her Snow was sexually abusing her. The initial report said the the abuse occurred at a home in the 1900 block of East Pine.

On July 5, 2005, then Detective Quent Tubbs, who retired as a sergeant from the Enid Police Department in July 2018, spoke with the victim at the Child Advocacy Center, according to the affidavit. The girl said Snow had been touching her for more than six years.

Tubbs asked the girl to tell him about the last time Snow had touched her, according to the affidavit. She said it was June 26, 2005, and Snow had her change from the clothes she was wearing into a blue, green and white striped dress.

She said Snow made her go into the bathroom, sit on sink, put her legs up and put them apart, according to the affidavit. She said Snow then try to rape her. She said Snow would also make her go into the bedroom, and he also would try to rape her there.

Tubbs asked when the last incident in the bedroom was, and she said it was May 28, 2005, according to the affidavit. She said Snow would make her wear the same dress as mentioned before.

The girl said Snow also would make her stand on a freezer chest while wearing the dress, according to the affidavit. She said Snow would make her pull the dress up and he would stand in front of her naked. She said the last time this occurred was June 16, 2005. The girl said this would happen while her mother was at work.

"Prior to my having the opportunity to speak with the defendant he fled the area without leaving a forwarding address," Tubbs wrote in the affidavit. On Jan. 18, 2006, Tubbs spoke with a relative of Snow's who said Snow was living in Shelbyville, Tenn.

Tubbs contacted local police there and faxed them the contents of his investigation, asking if they would make contact with Snow, according to the affidavit. On Jan. 20, 2006, Tubbs spoke with Detective Lori Mallard of the Shelbyville Police Department.

Mallard said she spoke with Snow, and he was at the Shelbyville department at that time, according to the affidavit. Mallard said Snow told her he usually has blackouts at which times he would do bad things he could not remember. He also said he was sick, did bad things and needed help.

Mallard said she read the statement from Tubbs' interview with the girl to Snow, according to the affidavit. Snow said, "I did everything you read to me in that paper."

Snow faces one to 20 years imprisonment on the charge. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond and was ordered to return to court Nov. 25, 2019, for a bond appearance.
