TOOELE -- A man who was supposed to help troubled teens in Tooele County was sentenced Tuesday for sexual abusing one of them.

A judge sentenced Jonathan Carver to serve 1 to 15 years for each of five counts of forcible sexual abuse of a 17-year-old girl.

Carver pleaded guilty to the charges in August.

He had worked as a house parent at Alpine Academy in Erda, where the girl was being treated. He admitted to a long relationship with her. The relationship was discovered when the girl left the school and her parents became concerned that Carver was still contacting her. They contacted police.

His sentences will run consecutively.
