Sex abuse charge filed in frat house sex assault

Ryan Wray, 26, Utah State University student and member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, arrested on charges of molesting a female student.

LOGAN — A formal charge has been filed against the past president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, 26-year-old Ryan C. Wray.

Wray was charged Friday with one count of forcible sexual abuse, a first-degree felony. He’s scheduled to make his first appearance in 1st District Court, May 4.

Wray was arrested March 24 and booked into the Cache County Jail. He was later released after posting $10,000 bail.

Logan City Police Capt. Tyson Budge said officers began an investigation after several female students reported being sexually assaulted by Wray, while attending parties at the fraternity house.

In each case, the girls reported being drunk at the time of the assaults and were supposedly being cared for by Wray.

Budge said because most of the victims interviewed by officers were reportedly drunk at the time of the alleged assaults, only one person identified Wray as the perpetrator. The most recent assault occurred just before Utah State University’s spring break.

When officers interviewed Wray, he confessed to the assaults and also provided information on two other victims.

The fraternity headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, suspended Wray shortly after being arrested. He faces a sentence of 15-years-to-life in prison if found guilty.
