FARMINGTON -- A 26-year-old man agreed to enter guilty pleas to reduced charges that stem from sexually abusing a child.
Jason Thomas Hong pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sex abuse of a child, third-degree felonies, in 2nd District Court on Monday.
A sentencing hearing is set for June 25. He is being held in Davis County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.
Hong was originally charged with four first-degree felonies of sodomy on a child, two first-degree felonies of aggravated sexual abuse of a child and three second-degree felonies of sexual abuse of a child.
According to the probable cause statement, Hong committed the acts between Feb. 7, 2001, and Feb. 6, 2005.
He would have been between the ages of 15 and 19 when the incidents occurred.
The victim, according to the documents, was younger than 14 at the time. While the alleged abuse occurred several years ago, Layton police located Hong on March 15 and interviewed him.
Then detectives arrested Hong and booked him into jail.
