FARMINGTON — The attorney for a West Point man accused of trading alcohol and tobacco in exchange for nude photos of teenagers is requesting that evidence from a search warrant be suppressed.
Defense attorney William P. Parsons III requested on Thursday a motion hearing for David T. Oliver, 40.
Oliver appeared in 2nd District Court, which was packed with two dozen members of Bikers Against Child Abuse.
Oliver is charged with nine counts of second-degree felony sexual exploitation of a minor; three counts of sexual battery, class A misdemeanors; and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, class B misdemeanors. Judge Robert J. Dale set the hearing to hear oral arguments about the motion for Feb. 8 in 2nd District Court in Layton.
According to court documents filed by Parsons on Sept. 12, he is requesting that any evidence seized by police officers from Oliver’s computer and phone be suppressed because “the warrant was just a fishing expedition and was executed as a general warrant …”
The motion also claims that one of the 15-year-old girls who sent photos to Oliver is not a reliable witness because she was in trouble at school and at home.
Oliver was arrested in April. He entered not guilty pleas to all of the charges Aug. 16.
According to a court document, Oliver “requested and received at least nine images of three minor females.” The incidents took place between June 1, 2011, and Nov. 11, 2011, court documents state.
Oliver also is accused of touching the breasts of one girl and the breasts and buttocks of another girl, according to a court document.
