Logan police arrest man suspected of raping and molesting young girl

LOGAN — Logan City Police have arrested a 53-year-old man they believe raped and molested a young girl multiple times. Ishiro Jim was booked Tuesday night into the Cache County Jail.

According to an arrest report, police officers received the information of a child allegedly being sexually abused by Jim, a person in close contact with the victim. The girl disclosed that the sexual abuse had occurred over two years ago, and again recently during the past month.

During a forensic interview, the alleged victim described several incidents of being molested and raped by Jim. The child, who is now over 14-years-old, also described being groped over her clothing by the suspect within the past three weeks.

The report states, officers questioned Jim at the police department. He allegedly admitted to molesting and raping the child several years ago. He also confessed to groping her breasts recently.

Jim was booked on multiple offences, including rape of a child, sodomy on a child, forcible sexual abuse and aggravated sexual abuse of a child. He will likely be arraigned on formal charges in 1st District Court Wednesday afternoon.

Police are asking a judge to hold Jim without bail. They report he is a possible flight risk and threat to the community.

Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.

    This is seriously happening WAYYY to much. It should never happen at all obviously, but all these perverts are getting deals when they should be sent straight to prison where they will get the treatment they deserve from fellow inmates. If this were to happen to a judge’s child or the defending attorneys child, you bet your butt they would pursue prison time. Its time to do better utah!

      It actually happens less here in the Cache Valley than in other parts of the state, or larger metropolitan areas. These cases don’t even make the news in Salt Lake City or Denver, unless it is by a position of trust.

      The Cache Valley Daily just feels the need to make the valley look like a bunch of child predators.

        It shouldn’t happen at all, anywhere. And it’s not a bad thing for the news to make it sound as bad as it is, let the predators know they can’t get away with it and the victims know they’ll be taken care of.
        I agree with Felicia, it happens too much, and it needs to stop.

        I’m not sure why you feel the need to downplay this issue, but clearly there is a problem or else the news outlets wouldn’t have stories like this. Regardless of location or who is involved, these types of offenders are disgusting and need to be exposed in order to protect the public.
