Past frat president pleads guilty to attempted sexual assult

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 former president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, Ryan C. Wray, has pleaded guilty to molesting a woman at the fraternity house last spring.

The 26-year-old accepted a plea deal in 1st District Court, Monday afternoon. The agreement reduces his charge from forcible sexual abuse to attempted forcible sexual abuse, a third-degree felony.

State attorney Barbara Lachmar told the court, Wray was arrested after a woman reported being molested by him, while attending a party at the fraternity house, near Utah State University.

At the time, Wray reportedly would provide a safe room at the house for women who were intoxicated.

Lachmar said the victim was being cared for by Wray when he put his hand down her pants and molested her. The victim was inebriated at the time and did not consent to any sexual activity.

Judge Kevin Allen ordered Wray to appear again in court December 14 for sentencing.

Since his arrest, Wray has been suspended from both the fraternity and the university.
