LOGAN — A 38-year-old Logan man has been arrested and charged with molesting a teenage girl. Omar S. Escobar was booked into the Cache County Jail in August after turning himself into police officers.

Escobar was arraigned in 1st District Court Monday morning. He has been charged with five counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

Cache County Deputy Attorney Dane Murray said Escobar self reported the alleged crimes to Logan City police officers just before being booked into jail. The suspect told officers that he had molested the girl on multiple occasions.

Officers later interviewed the alleged victim, who was an acquaintance of Escobar. She provided additional details about the sexual abuse.

Murray believed that Escobar turned himself into police after the victim’s family learned about the crimes and threatened to report it.

During Monday’s court appearance, Judge Thomas Willmore ordered Escobar to return on October 21, to decide whether he wants to have a preliminary hearing in the case.

Escobar is currently out of jail after posting a $50,000 bond. He could face up to 15-years in prison if convicted.

    More “enrichment” from our “greatest strength”. How much longer will we subject our children to this nightmare before we admit that our ideas are wrong, and the wisdom of our ancestors was right?
