LOGAN — A 38-year-old Logan man, Brian K. Williams, was sentenced to at least 15-years in prison after previously being found guilty of child sex abuse.
Court records show, Judge Kevin Allen sentenced Williams to the maximum penalty for each of the 12 charges, six-counts of first-degree felony aggravated sex abuse of a child and six-counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse.
In October, a jury of five men and three woman found him guilty on all charges after deliberating for only a few hours. During the five-day trial three victims described how Williams molested them repeatedly. They said he would shower with them and “skinny dip” with them in a hot tub.
During Monday’s sentencing, Judge Allen ordered Williams to serve five-years-to-life for each of the first-degree felonies and one-to-15-years for each of the second-degree felonies. Three of the five-year sentences are to be served consecutively with the other sentences to run concurrent.
During the trial Williams’ prior attorney, Camille Neider, claimed the allegations against him had been blown out of proportion. She also accused state attorneys of prosecutorial misconduct, saying they mischaracterized the defendant.
Elizabeth Hunt, who now represents Williams, has already appealed the case to the Utah Supreme Court. The notice of appeal was filed Tuesday.
