Individuals facing criminal allegations likely want to move ahead with as much helpful information as possible. Therefore, accused parties may wish to gain more knowledge on certain criminal proceedings as well as information pertaining to the specific charges they face. If parties have been accused of sex crimes, finding out what legal options may work best for them could be a prudent step to take.
One man in Utah may be considering such action after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that the man was volunteering as a reading teacher at an elementary school when an alleged incident took place. A 10-year-old girl stated that she needed help with a word, and when the man came to her desk to help her, he purportedly grabbed her chest.
As a result of the supposed event, authorities were contacted. The man was taken into custody at his home. He was booked and formally charged with aggravated sexual abuse of a child, which is a first-degree felony. At the time of his arrest, the man did not wish to comment on the situation and asked for an attorney.
Felony charges relating to sex crimes could seriously impact the man for the rest of his life. Therefore, he will likely want to work toward avoiding a conviction for such allegations. Gathering information on how his case will likely be handled in Utah criminal court may help him better understand his predicament. He may also wish to consult with his legal counsel to determine which strategies may work in his best interests.
