LOGAN — The jury trial for a Providence doctor, accused of sexually assaulting a child, has been rescheduled after two previous trials were cancelled. The new trial for Brevan B. Baugh will begin December 3, and last three days.
Baugh appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday afternoon. The 42-year-old Providence resident was arrested more than a year ago and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.
Public defender Mike McGinnis represented Baugh during the hearing. He told the court he had spoken to defendant’s attorney, Greg Skordas, who had asked for the new trial to be scheduled.
Two previous trial dates were cancelled because of scheduling conflicts and failed plea negotiations.
In July 2018, Cache County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Baugh after investigators received a report of the alleged sexual abuse. It reportedly occurred between January 2012 and 2014. The victim was between 8 or 9-years-old when the abuse started.
Two months after being arrested, Baugh waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
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.
