OGDEN -- A former Clearfield man, now a prison inmate, has been charged with sexual assaults on two female campers that reportedly took place on the same day.
Brandon Lee Harris, 24, was arraigned Friday in 2nd District Court on charges of rape, a first-degree felony, unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a third-degree felony, and providing alcohol to a minor, a class B misdemeanor.
The offenses occurred on July 1, 2011, according to charging documents filed last week.
The incidents took place in a camping area in the foothills east of Ogden, according to reports by the Weber County Sheriff's Office, which investigated. The two women were camping when they encountered the suspect.
Harris is currently serving a prison term of up to five years for a charge of unlawful sexual activity with a minor committed in October 2007 in Layton, court records show.
He pleaded guilty to the charge in March 2008 and was sentenced to the prison term, which was originally suspended in favor of 90 days in the Davis County Jail, followed by probation.
Subsequent probation violations lead to additional incarceration, including another short stretch in jail ordered in May 2011.
Continuing probation violations, unspecified in the court records database online, lead to the invoking of the original prison term in October 2011.
After his arraignment on the new charges via video hookup in 2nd District Court Friday, Harris was scheduled for a status conference Feb. 29 before Judge Ernie Jones.
Unlawful sexual activity with a minor can be a statutory offense involving a consenting but underage participant. Rape is always illicit sexual behavior against the will of the victim.
