FARMINGTON -- Defense attorneys want to wait three weeks before a former South Davis Metro Fire Agency captain enters a plea to five felony counts in connection with inappropriately touching a young girl.
Bradley Dean Freeze, 42, of Kaysville, is charged with three first- degree felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child and two second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
In court Thursday, Freeze's defense attorney, Gregory Skordas, said he needs the extra three weeks because "we are waiting for the results from the forensics computer lab."
Investigators want to know if Freeze had downloaded any photographs onto his computer because, according to court documents, he had taken inappropriate photographs of the young girl "on at least two occasions using his cellular phone" between Sept. 1, 2010, and Aug. 3 of this year.
Freeze also had the girl touch him inappropriately, court documents state.
On Aug. 6, Kaysville police arrested Freeze, who is in Davis County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Police seized Freeze's cell phone at the time of his arrest, according to the probable cause affidavit.
South Davis Metro Fire Agency Chief Jim Rampton said Freeze, who had been with the department for at least 15 years, resigned in September.
