Possible plea deal for past frat president accused of sex assault

Ryan Wray, 26, Utah State University student and member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, arrested on charges of molesting a female student.

LOGAN — Prosecutors have offered a plea deal to a former president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, Ryan C. Wray, who is accused of molesting several women. The 26-year-old is charged with forcible sexual abuse, a first-degree felony.

Wray’s defense attorney, Shannon Demler told a judge in 1st District Court Monday afternoon, an offer had been made which would reduce the sex abuse charge in exchange for a guilty plea. He asked the court for additional time to consider the offer and review additional evidence in the case.

The specific details of the plea were not discussed but would keep the alleged victims and witnesses from having to testify during a trial.

In March, Wray was arrested after several women reported being sexually assaulted by the past president, while attending parties at the fraternity house, near Utah State University.

In each case, the girls reported being intoxicated at the time of the assaults and were supposedly being cared for by Wray.

Both the fraternity and the university suspended Wray shortly after he was arrested.

Judge Kevin Allen allowed Wray a month to consider the offer and ordered him to appear again in court October 26.
