LOGAN — A 34-year-old Smithfield man has admitted to unlawful sexual activity with a 17-year-old girl. Victor Torres was arrested in January after a Cache County Sheriff’s investigation.

Torres appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. He accepted a plea deal, pleading guilty to two misdemeanors of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Cache County Deputy Attorney Dane Murray said Torres molested the victim multiple times in July 2018. The girl was reportedly an acquaintance of the defendant.

Deputies began investigating the crimes after the victim’s mother learned about the relationship and reported it.

Torres was scheduled for sentencing July 29 and remains out of jail after posting $7,000 bond. He could face up to one-year in jail.
