LOGAN — Sentencing for Jacob W. Wilson was postponed again, while attorneys determine if he can be admitted into a sex offender treatment facility instead of being incarcerated. The 19-year-old Logan man is convicted of sexually harassing a teenage girl.
Wilson appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. He 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. He was originally scheduled to be sentenced on this new conviction on March 5.
During Monday’s hearing, public defender Mike McGinnis asked to delay sentencing again, so he could see if Wilson could be admitted into the Northern Utah Community Correctional Center (NUCCC), an all-male facility that treats sex offenders. Judge Thomas Willmore said he would allow more time after prosecutor, Jacob Gordon, said he was in favor of allowing the defendant to be screened. The sentencing was rescheduled for April 16.
Wilson will remain in jail. Depending upon whether he is allowed into NUCCC, he still could face up to five years in prison.
