In order to contend with charges recently leveled against him, one man in Utah may be considering his legal options. Reports stated that the man had apparently run a day care during the 1990s and is now facing sex crimes allegations. A woman who is now 22 years old recently went to police to report that the man sexually abused her while she attended the man's day care as a child.
Reports stated that from September of 1998 to May of 1999 the man allegedly abused the then 5-year-old girl. He purportedly touched her inappropriately and penetrated her vagina with his fingers. It is also alleged that he and his wife would have sexual intercourse in front of the children at the day care and that the man would participate in other sexual acts in front of the girl.
As a result of the report, the man is facing a felony charge for aggravated sexual abuse of a child. He turned himself in to authorities and was released shortly after on bond after his bail was set at $100,000. It was noted that authorities suspect that there could be other victims.
The charge brought against him for the alleged sex crimes could lead to several years in jail if the man is convicted. He will undoubtedly want to approach his case in the best manner possible, and as part of such efforts, he may wish to find out more on criminal proceedings relating to his case and what defense tactics may be best for him. Speaking with an experienced Utah defense attorney may also prove useful to him.
