LOGAN — A 37-year-old Nibley man is in jail after allegedly having sex with an underage boy at a local motel. Brody Coates was booked into the Cache County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Logan City Police Assistant Chief Jeff Simmons said officers began investigating Coates after the alleged victim, who lives in Brigham City, reported engaging in sex acts with the suspect at the Econo Lodge Inn and Suites.

The victim told officers, he met Coates through a social networking and online dating app. The two allegedly exchanged sexually explicit photographs of each other before agreeing to meet.

According to jail booking records, Coates is being held on suspicion of committing forcible sodomy and enticing a minor over the internet, both felonies. He is being held on $70,000 bail, and will likely be arraigned on formal charges in 1st District Court Thursday afternoon.

    I think you mean “raped” an underaged boy.

      An underaged boy who was on a dating site that requires you to be over 18… and obviously the boy engaged.

    This man works at Conservice here in the valley training their new hires (many of whom are teenagers). That’s right – works. As in currently. He hasn’t been put on leave or anything.

    Yes he made a mistake and it is unfortunate. He is a great person. However how can this underaged person be on an adult website and say he is of age. Maybe the underaged person needs to get help as he is falsifying his age. The news blows so much out of proportion.

        The Victim met him on a social dating app that requires you to be 18 to sign up. Every knows that. The kid should be getting in trouble for lying about his age. This is BS and takes away from those who actually do get raped.

    This man is innocent until proven guilty. By the courts… not by Cache Valley Daily nor the public.
