Logan man expected to plead guilty to having sex with teen girl

LOGAN — A 25-year-old former Logan man is expected to plead guilty to having sex with a then 14-year-old girl. Frederick A. Guadarrama is being held in the Cache County Jail since February 14, after he was seen entering a hotel room with the victim and violating a judge’s no contact order.

Guadarrama appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning for a final conference ahead of a March 18 jury trial. He had been charged with one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a third-degree felony.

Defense attorney Kelly Booth told the court they had worked out a plea deal with prosecutors. She asked for the trial to be cancelled and be given one more week to work out the details of the agreement.

Judge Brian Cannell ordered Guadarrama to appear again in court for a change of plea hearing on March 12.

According to an arrest warrant, Guadarrama raped the then 14-year-old girl while he was on leave from the military and visiting Cache County in July 2017. The girl became pregnant and later gave birth to a baby.

When detectives interviewed Guadarrama, he denied ever having sex with the juvenile, but admitted that he had been alone with her when he was home on leave. He later consented to taking a DNA test which showed he was the baby’s biological father.

In February, Guadarrama waived his right to a preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty to the charge. He is being held in jail without bail and could face up to five-years in prison.

    This is so sick ! This man rapped his wife’s 14 year old sister and got the 14 year old pregnant. The other men that also rapped the girl where convicted to Life in preson. So should this guy ! Why are they letting him out to go and have sex with her again at hotels! Being in the military should not grant him any leeway! He deserves life in jail !!!!
