LOGAN — A 50-year-old Nibley man has been sentenced to prison for after previously pleading guilty to sexually abusing a teenage girl.
Miguel A. Gomez appeared in 1st District Court Monday after previously accepting a plea deal in July, pleading guilty to reduced charges.
Court records show Gomez was sentenced to one to 15 years for each of the five charges of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony. Judge Brandon Maynard ordered the sentences to begin immediately and run concurrently.
Gomez was originally arrested in December 2013, accused of assaulting a teenage girl. He was originally charged with 10 counts, five charges of sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony and five charges of forcible sodomy, a first-degree felony.
In July, Gomez accepted a plea deal from prosecutors, pleading guilty to five sexual abuse charges that were reduced to second-degree felonies. The remaining sodomy charges were also dismissed without prejudice.
