Osage County District Attorney Mike Fisher said a Tulsa man has violated the terms of his probation after opposing a protective order put forth by an alleged rape victim.

A warrant for the arrest of Nosakhare Alexander “Alex” Agbonze, 31, was issued March 4 following his guilty plea Feb. 12 on a charge of possession of a stolen vehicle. He received a five-year suspended sentence, but Fisher claims Agbonze violated the terms of the probation. Fisher is now seeking prison time.

Agbonze pleaded guilty to the stolen vehicle charge and Osage County prosecutors dismissed a rape charge that had been filed against him in July 2017 in connection with a 2006 alleged sexual offense. Prosecutors cited evidentiary problems with the rape case as the basis for making the deal with Agbonze. The rape case had been made possible by a DNA match numerous years after the original incident.

When the court gave Abzonze the suspended sentence, it included as a condition of his probation that he would be prohibited from opposing any request that the alleged victim in the rape case might make in court for a protective order against him.

Nonetheless, according to a court filing by Fisher, Agbonze allegedly did exactly what he promised not to do. Fisher’s filing says Agbonze on Feb. 27 appeared in a courtroom in Tulsa and opposed the alleged victim’s request for a protective order.

Fisher is asking that a court date be set in Osage County District Court for a hearing about what Agbonze allegedly did, and that the five-year sentence be carried out in full.
