SALT LAKE CITY — A Tremonton man was charged Monday with engaging in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, according to court documents.
Bryan Christopher Hood, 26, is charged in 1st District Court with nine counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a 17-year-old, a third-degree felony.
Hood and a girl were involved in a relationship for about five months in 2019, according to charging documents.
“During this time, defendant had sexual intercourse with the victim at least three times on three separate occasions,” the charges state.
The girl recently told police about the incidents after learning that a 16-year-old friend was also sexually involved with Hood, according to a police affidavit. That case is under investigation, according to police.
“Having someone willing to engage in sexual relationships with young girls causes concern that he may be in, or seek more illegal relationships,” police wrote in the affidavit.
