LOGAN — A 19-year-old Cove man has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a teenage girl. Erick Durrant was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of sodomy of a child and seducing a minor over the internet.
Cache County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Matt Bilodeau said the underage victim allegedly met Durrant through a mutual friend. They continued to communicate on Snapchat but the suspect took the relationship too far.
Durrant is being held in the Cache County Jail on $35,000 bail. Formal charges are expected to be filed on Monday.
Bilodeau said the arrest is a reminder for parents to make sure they know what their kids are doing on their cellphones and online. Check out who they are communicating with on social media.
