OGDEN — An Ogden man is in jail after being accused of molesting a six-year-old girl in South Ogden.

Corick Dieter Christopherson, 19, was indicted Nov. 14 on two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony. Each charge carries a possible sentence of 15 years to life if Christopherson is convicted.

Police in South Ogden were alerted to the possible sex abuse on Aug. 7 when the six-year-old girl’s parents called police after the girl told her mother she was sore “down there,” according to charging documents. The girl detailed to her parents and police multiple instances of the alleged abuse. When the girl’s parents confronted Christopherson, he denied the abuse allegations.

On Aug. 17, a forensic interview was conducted on the girl at the Children’s Justice Center, where more abuse allegations were disclosed to police, according to charging documents.

A warrant was issued for Christopherson a day after his indictment, according to court records. He was booked into the Weber County Jail around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday evening, jail records show.

Christopherson is being held in jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond. His initial appearance is scheduled for Thursday in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
