Logan man jailed for rape

20-year-old Taylor Empey of Logan faces rape and sexual assault charges stemming from an incident that allegedly happened June 2. Logan Police Assistant Chief Jeff Curtis says the victim and Empey were at a birthday party where large amounts of alcohol were consumed. They both went back to Empey’s apartment to spend the night. Curtis says at approximately 5 a.m. the woman awoke to Empey taking inappropriate sexual liberties with her. She states she wasn’t coherent enough to stop the assault. The victim reported the crime to police on June 8. Curtis says there was enough probably cause in the case to file charges. He says these situations are extremely sad but it is important the public is aware of them so they can protect themselves from a similar situation.
