LOGAN — A North Logan man, who was facing felony kidnapping and other misdemeanor domestic violence charges, has accepted a plea deal and ordered to remain in jail until sentencing.
Dustin T. Wilcox appeared Monday afternoon in 1st District Court.
The 36-year-old was arrested in August, after allegedly assaulting his estranged wife outside a Nibley home, while she was trying to retrieve the couple’s children. The victim claimed that he took her car keys, and threw her cell phone into a nearby field as she was trying to video the assault.
During Monday’s pre-trial conference, Wilcox pleaded “no contest” to one count of violating a protective order, a third-degree felony and two misdemeanors. The plea means the defendant concedes the charges without admitting guilt. As part of the plea, prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining 10 charges against him.
Judge Kevin Allen scheduled sentencing for February 13. He ordered Wilcox to remain in jail, saying that based on the defendant’s history, it was in his best interest to remain incarcerated.
