ROY, Utah (AP) -- A trial has been set for a former L-D-S missionary accused of fondling two girls while he was on his mission in Utah.

21-year-old John Matthew Baysden of North Carolina is charged with three counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse.

Authorities say Baysden allegedly videotaped the three separate illegal acts.

Police say the two victims were 15 and 17 years old.

Out of the three known incidents, two occured without the girls' knowledge because they were asleep.

Baysden was serving his L-D-S mission in Roy.

His trial is set for May 11th.
