LOGAN — The sentencing for Jacob W. Wilson, who is convicted of sexually harassing a teenage girl, has been postponed so attorneys can gather more information in the case.

Wilson appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. The 19-year-old Logan man previously pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual activity with a minor and dealing in materials harmful to a minor, both third-degree felonies, and misdemeanor drug possession.

Wilson was arrested in October by Cache County Sheriff’s deputies, after he took a video of the underage girl, while she was in the shower. He later sent naked pictures of himself to her cellphone.

Court records show, he previously served 81-days in jail for sexting with an underage girl and criminal mischief.

During Monday’s hearing, public defender Mike McGinnis asked to delay sentencing, so he could review a pre-sentence report about Wilson’s criminal history. Judge Thomas Willmore said he would allow more time and rescheduled sentencing for March 19.

Wilson will remain in jail. He could face up to five years in prison.
