Logan man pleads guilty to mailing sexual material to teenage boy

LOGAN — A 69-year-old Logan man accused of trying to lure a teenage boy into having sex with him, has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced next month.

Court records show, Thomas M. Thackeray accepted a plea deal in 1st District Court Monday. He pleaded guilty to one count of stalking, a third-degree felony.

Police arrested him June 7 after he allegedly was caught on security video, mailing sexually explicit packages to a Logan High School student. Officers claim he sent at least five packages to the alleged victim. The packages contained adult-oriented material and letters. When officers and agents with Adult Probation and Parole arrested him at his Riverwalk Parkway apartment, they also found evidence of other potential victims and criminal events.

Thackeray has been charged multiple times with similar crimes in Weber and Davis Counties. In 2009, he was sentenced to one-to-15-years in prison for stalking and dealing harmful materials to a minor. He is being held in the Utah State Prison for violating his parole.

Judge Thomas Willmore scheduled a sentencing date for November 14.
