LOGAN — The sexual assault case involving a Providence doctor has been delayed after the 41-year-old hired a new attorney.

Brevan B. Baugh appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon.  He was arrested in July and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.

Cache County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Baugh after investigators received a report of the alleged sexual abuse.  It reportedly occurred between January 2012 and January 2014.  The victim was between 8 or 9 when the abuse started.

During Monday’s court appearance, an assistant for defense attorney Greg Skordas said Baugh had just hired their law firm.  They asked for more time to gather all the details in the case.

In September, Baugh waived his right to a preliminary hearing.  His attorney at that time explained prosecutors had offered a plea deal, where both charges would be reduced to second-degree felonies.

During Monday’s court appearance, Judge Kevin Allen said he would allow more time.  He ordered Buagh to return to court on November 26.

Baugh is a naturopathic physician and owner of Naturopathic Medical in Providence. Deputies do not believe the abuse had any connection to his practice.

Baugh is currently out of jail after posting $40,000.  He could face up to life in prison if convicted.
