LOGAN — A 24-year-old Logan man has confessed to molesting a teenage girl and will now wait to be sentenced. David C. Jackson accepted a plea deal to reduced charges but could still be sentenced to prison.
Jackson appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon. He pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted forcible sex abuse of a child, amended to a third-degree felony. As part of the agreement, prosecutors dropped two remain charges.
Jackson was arrested by Cache County Sheriff’s deputies in October, after the victim’s mother called 911 to report the crime. The defendant was allegedly an acquaintance of the victim.
During Monday’s court appearance, Cache County deputy attorney Griffin Hazard explained how in September, Jackson attempted multiple times to touch the 14-year-old girl inappropriately.
