LOGAN — The rape case for a 24-year-old North Logan man was temporarily postponed so attorneys can review evidence. Domnic Harris was arrested in February on suspicion of sexual assault and violating his probation.
Harris appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. He previously was charged with two counts of object rape, a first-degree felony; forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony; and two misdemeanors.
According to an arrest report, North Park Police allege that Harris communicated with a 17-year-old girl in February through Snapchat. About a week later they agreed to meet in person.
The girl claimed she went to Harris’s home and was offered wine, which she refused. Another woman was invited to join them at the residence, and later that the three began engaging in sexual activity.
When detectives interviewed Harris, he admitted to going too far. He also acknowledged that he did not stop when the victim asked him to do so.
Harris claimed the victim was 18; however, when detectives reviewed the Snapchat conversation, it showed she admitted to being underage.
Court records show, Harris was on probation when the alleged assault occurred. In September 2017, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession or use of a controlled substance. He was later sentenced to serve two-years of probation instead of one-year in jail. He was also ordered to complete counseling, complete 40-hours of community service, and not consume any drugs or alcohol.
During Monday’s court appearance, public defender Mike McGinnis asked for more time to review evidence in the case.
Judge Thomas Willmore granted the request and ordered Harris to appear again in court April 15.
Harris remains in jail, being held without bail. He could face up to life in prison if convicted.
