Title: LLOYD CALVIN COOKSEY, Petitioner, v. RANDALL G. WORKMAN, Warden, Respondent

Court: United States District Court, N.D. Oklahoma

Case Number:02-CV-337-TCK-SAJ.

Date: Jun 8, 2006


On July 10, 1998, shortly after 7:00 p.m., nineteen year old Rhiannon Thoreson was abducted at knifepoint from a car wash in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was handcuffed and forced onto the floor in the back seat of Petitioner’s car. Petitioner drove her to a secluded wooded area and sexually assaulted her. During the assault, Petitioner forced the victim to perform oral sex several times, attempted sexual intercourse multiple times both vaginally and anally, performed oral sex on the victim, fondled her and slapped her. When Petitioner heard the sounds of a large truck approaching, he hastily drove away with Ms. Thoreson. While driving back to a more populated area, Petitioner’s car broke down. Ms. Thoreson jumped from the car and flagged down a passing motorist. She was taken to a nearby gas station where she called police, and was later taken to the  hospital for a rape examination. Soon thereafter Petitioner’s car was found abandoned and police were called to investigate. Clothing items later identified as belonging to both Petitioner and the victim were found in the abandoned car. Petitioner was arrested at his home the same evening. He was taken to the hospital where the victim identified him as her assailant.



After carefully reviewing the record in this case, the Court concludes that Petitioner has not established that he is in custody in violation of the Constitution or laws of the United States. Therefore, his petition for writ of habeas corpus shall be denied.

ACCORDINGLY, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for writ of habeas corpus (Dkt. # 1) is denied.
