CEDAR CITY — A 39-year-old Parowan man who pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual activity with a minor has been sentenced to one year in jail followed by four years of probation.

Chad Kay Robertson was sentenced in Cedar City on June 3 by 5th District Judge Matthew L. Bell.

As previously reported, Robertson, who had worked as a volunteer youth sports coach, was arrested on Jan. 31 after being accused of having multiple sexual encounters with a 16-year-old boy whom he had met via a map-based online app designed to facilitate such meetings. Although the boy had indicated he was over the age of 18 when he created the profile on the app, he was actually underage, according to the charging documents. Further investigation revealed that Robertson sent the boy sexually explicit messages, along with at least one sexually explicit photo, the charges stated.

Robertson was initially charged with six third-degree felonies and one misdemeanor. The charges included one count of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, four counts of unlawful sexual activity with a 16- or 17-year-old, one count of dealing in materials harmful to a minor, along with one count of enticing a minor, a class A misdemeanor.
