LOGAN — The rape trial for Kay K. Moosman has been postponed for a third time after additional evidence was provided in the case. The 59-year-old Mendon man’s two-day trial was scheduled for October 17, after two previous dates were canceled.

Moosman appeared in 1st District Court Monday morning. He was previously charged with rape, sodomy and object rape, all first-degree felonies; along with voyeurism and multiple counts of violating a protective order, all misdemeanors.

Moosman was arrested in June 2018 after the alleged victim reported the assaults to Cache County Sheriff’s deputies. The defendant was apparently acquainted with the woman, who had previously filed a protective order against him.

Later, Moosman is alleged to have tried to cancel the woman’s cell phone account and vehicle insurance. When confronted by officers, he said the whole thing was a big misunderstanding.
Moosman waived his right to a preliminary hearing in September 2018. He also pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

During Monday’s court appearance, Cache County deputy attorney Dane Murray said Moosman is currently facing a civil case along with the criminal cases. As part of the investigation, the alleged victim provided additional evidence and phone records. Defense attorneys were asking for the continuance of the trial, to give them time to review the new material.

Judge Thomas Willmore said he would allow attorneys to review the evidence. He scheduled a pre-trial conference for November 18.

Moosman could face up to life in prison if convicted. He is currently out of jail after posting $5,000 bail.

    It is
    A very sad time in our world today for when a man is married to a woman and been happily married for 9 years and they had made a taped together that should remain personal and private. After the tapes were made 6 years ago she still continue to lie next to him in bed go on several vacations outside of the country and everywhere else. I urge people to research themselves to see hpw unjustly this case is.,degrading and with malice when his only goal was loving and treating her better then any man I have seen treat a woman. BIG SURPRISE this is his wife just so everyone knows.
    In return it is her ,in my opinion Rachel has been the abusive one to Kay. She has been charged with with physical abuse and somehow the records have never been brought up. disappeared.? I have never been more disappointed in our judicial system as I am today. I feel I can speak for others as well as I
    That I am not the only one who does not trust our justice system anymore. Is no longer innocent until proven guilty. Is not even guilty until proven innocent. It’s all politics and judgments and it doesn’t matter what
    Proof you have or what you have to say. They are already bias. I am saddened and I worry for our nation.
