Richmond man sentenced to prison for sexually abusing young girls

LOGAN — A 39-year-old Richmond man, Dustin Mangum, has been sentenced to at least 21-years in prison for sexually abusing two girls years ago. His sentence came Monday, after previously pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.

Court records show Mangum was sentenced in 1st District Court Monday afternoon. Judge Kevin Allen ordered him to serve one term of 15-years-to-life, and a second term of six-years-to-life. The two sentences will be served consecutively.

Mangum sexually abused a girl in May 2003. The victim, who is a teenager now, said the defendant engaged in oral sex with her when she was around four-years-old.

The second victim is an 11-year-old girl who reported she was also sexually abused and molested over the course of several years, before Mangum was arrested August 19, 2016.

Prior to being transferred to prison, Mangum was being held in the Cache County Jail without bail.
