LOGAN — The jury trial for a Providence doctor accused of sexually assaulting a child has been postponed for a second time. The two-day trial for Brevan B. Baugh was scheduled to begin September 19, after a previous trial in March was cancelled.

Baugh was scheduled to appear in 1st District Court Monday afternoon for a final pre-trial conference. The 42-year-old Providence resident was arrested more than a year ago and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.

Neither Baugh nor his attorney, Greg Skordas, were present for Monday’s hearing.

Judge Kevin Allen explained that the court had received a motion late Friday afternoon from Skordas to continue the hearing. He cancelled the trial for next month and scheduled a new pre-trial conference for September 10.

In July 2018, Cache County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Baugh after investigators received a report of the alleged sexual abuse. It reportedly occurred between January 2012 and January 2014. The victim was between 8 or 9-years-old when the abuse started.

Two months later, Baugh waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Baugh is a naturopathic physician and owner of Naturopathic Medical in Providence. Deputies do not believe the abuse had any connection to his practice.

Baugh is currently out of jail after posting $40,000. He could face up to life in prison if convicted.
