LOGAN — A 20-year-old Logan man, who confessed to having sex with a 15-year-old girl, is headed to jail. Joshua R. Otto was ordered to spend 45-days behind bars, after previously accepting a plea deal to lesser charges.
According to court staff, Otto was sentenced in 1st District Court Tuesday morning. He was ordered to report to the Cache County Jail Saturday morning to begin his sentence.
Otto was arrested in March 2018, after deputies learned of the relationship between the defendant and the teenage girl. The crime occurred in December 2017. A year later, he pleaded guilty to an amended charge of sexual battery, reduced to a class A misdemeanor.
Otto was out of jail on bail after posting $40,000 bond.
During Tuesday’s sentencing, Judge Brian Cannell gave Otto credit for the one-day he had previously served. He also granted him work release while he serves his sentence.
