A maintenance man has been charged with raping patients at a home for institutionalized people where he worked.
Gerald Williams ‘Butch’ Perry Jr, 60, is accused of raping five patients since he began working at the Westview Living Center in Guthrie, Oklahoma in 2008.
All of the victims had mental disabilities, including one that was noncommunicative and others that were intellectually at a middle-school level.

Perry has been charged with first-degree rape, three counts of forcible oral sodomy and rape by instrumentation.
The center’s staff became aware of the situation earlier this month when a patient told them that Perry had sex with her and touched her inappropriately, according to court records.
The patient said Perry had sex with her on a prior occasion and had forced her to perform oral sex on him, records show.
He had entered the room to paint it and put a lock on the door.
This prompted staff members to suspend Perry. They launched an investigation.
Four other women told staff that Perry touched them sexually or he forced them to give him oral sex.
The woman with the highest mental functioning said Perry demanded that she perform oral sex on him. He would touch her breasts on multiple occasions, she said.
She worried that Perry would react negatively if she admitted she didn’t want the activity.

In a separate incident, Perry is accused of putting a chair against the door knob of another woman’s room to keep it shut.
He would take off the victim’s clothes and give her $5 to $10 to keep the interactions private.
While that victim would perform oral sex on him, he would bring the noncommunicative woman into the room so she could watch.
Perry is being held at the Logan County Jail.
His bail is $250,000.
