Logan man sentenced to prison in child sex abuse case

Daniel Rivera-Arceo, 60, arrested and charged with sodomy on a child, aggravated sexual abuse of a child and attempted sexual abuse of a child, all are first-degree felonies. He also faces two additional charges of aggravated sexual abuse of a child from another case.

LOGAN — A judge has sentenced a 60-year-old man to prison for sexually abusing a child multiple times.

Court records show Daniel Rivera-Arceo appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday, after previously pleading guilty to two counts of sex abuse of a child, both second-degree felonies.

Judge Brian Cannell sentenced Rivera-Arceo to two sentences of one-to-15 years in the Utah State Prison. The sentences will run concurrently. He also ordered him to complete sex offender treatment while incarcerated.

Rivera-Arceo was arrested in October and booked into the Cache County Jail.

Prosecutors said Rivera-Arceo befriended a woman and her daughter through his church. While visiting their home, he was caught touching the girl under a blanket. The girl later told investigators she had been molested 10-to-12 times.
