LOGAN — A 20-year-old Logan man has admitted to having sex with a 15-year-old girl. Joshua R. Otto accepted a plea deal that could send him to jail for up to a year.

Otto appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning. He pleaded guilty to one count of sexual battery, reduced to a class A misdemeanor. As part of the agreement, prosecutors dropped a second charge against him.

Cache County deputy attorney Jacob Gordon told the court how Otto had an illegal relationship with the victim. The crime occurred in December 2017.

Otto spoke only briefly. He told Judge Brian Cannell that he wanted to waive his rights to a trial. He also acknowledged the possible jail sentence the misdemeanor charge carries.

Sentencing was scheduled for May 14.

Otto remains out of jail on bail after posting $40,000 bond.
