SANDY — A Layton man accused of following groups of young girls several times over the last decade now faces more time on probation after he pleaded no contest to looking under dressing room doors of two teen girls in Sandy.

Before ordering Chad Dee Flitton to a year of supervision and a mental health evaluation, 3rd District Judge Paul Farr made it clear he will order six months in jail if the 43-year-old Flitton reoffends during the 12-month period.

“With the concern for the community, I want 180 days to be available if there are future offenses,” Farr said. He set a Nov. 14 hearing to check in to evaluate Flitton’s progress, including whether he has undergone the mental health evaluation.

In February 2017, the two teens accused Flitton of looking under the dressing doors at The Shops at Southtown. He was cited and released, and has spent the last two years in and out of jail on other charges. On Thursday, Farr sentenced him to the six-month jail term but suspended the sentence in favor of probation.


Flitton pleaded no contest to a single charge of voyeurism, a class B misdemeanor, as part of an agreement with prosecutors, court records show. In exchange for the plea, a second, identical count was dismissed.

Flitton has previously admitted to charges that include stalking and sexual battery. Prosecutors in Davis County are reviewing a newer report of misconduct, though Flitton has not yet been criminally charged in the case.
