LOGAN — Sentencing has been delayed for a North Logan man, Vance Bowman, who previously pleaded guilty to having sex with a teenager and sending her explicit text messages.
The 30-year-old Bowman appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. His defense attorney, Craig Chlarson told the court they had not received received a pre-sentence report, outlining the defendant’s background and criminal history.
Chlarson asked the court for additional time to obtain the report and allow Bowman to complete a psycho-sexual evaluation.
In January, Bowman pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual conduct, a third-degree felony and dealing in materials harmful to a minor, a class A misdemeanor. As part of his guilty plea, prosecutors dropped eight additional charges.
State attorney Barbara Lachmar said the victim was 17-years-old, 13-years younger than Bowman, when the crimes occurred around July 2015.
Judge Thomas Willmore ordered Bowman to appear again in court March 14 for sentencing. He faces up to five-years in prison.
