Former Po-Hi wrestling coaches to face charges
Two former Po-Hi wrestling coaches were charged last week for various felonies and misdemeanors involving minors at Ponca City High School.
Justice Circle,23 and Jared Wynn,31 along with Dylan Schickram,21 were all wrestling coaches at Ponca City High School until recently. All three men have made initial court appearances with lawyers and have been released on bond.
Circle is charged with two felonies, one for lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16-years old and a second felony for soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by technology. Schickram is facing the more serious felony with an allegation of rape in the first or second degree and a felony for soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by technology. Wynn is charged with two misdemeanors, one for harassment by use of electronic device and a second one for permitting invitees under 21 to possess or consume alcohol or controlled dangerous substances.
The allegations in the affidavits allege various acts by the three former coaches while they were associated with the Ponca City High School wrestling as coaches and while some of the alleged victims were mat maids for the team. The alleged activities took place during the 2019-2020 season and was discovered while a separate issue was being investigated by the school resource officer. The social media platform, Snapchat was used for much of the technology activity and investigators are working to get all that information pulled together.
Schickram is facing the most serious allegation and that is the rape allegation. The affidavit details the mat maid coming to his hotel room while at a tournament last year and the admission by Schickram of having a sexual relationship in his truck with a minor shortly after that. Snapchat data is also being requested in this case.
Wynn was the head wrestling coach and is alleged to have utilized Snapchat seeking out nude pictures of a former mat maid and providing alcohol at a party and beer to his assistant coaches at a tournament who were not 21 years old at the time of the incident.
All three men have made initial court appearances with court dates for Wynn on Dec.2 on the misdemeanor docket and Dec.4 court dates for Circle and Schickram.
