FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- A former counselor accused of sexually assaulting two teenagers at a private facility says he's innocent.
Jerome Moody pleaded innocent today to two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of aggravated sexual assault and one count of forcible sexual abuse.
Prosecutors say the Chicago man sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy several times last year and a 15-year-old earlier this year at the Benchmark Behavioral Health Systems in Woods Cross, where he was a counselor. The boys did not report the alleged abuse until after he left his job in February.
Moody was arrested in Chicago after a warrant was issued for his arrest and a postal worker tipped off police to Moody's forwarding address.
Another hearing was set for August 30.
