Kimberly Houk ReportingA 29-year old Tooele man is in jail tonight facing charges of forcible sexual abuse of a minor. The victim says his molester didn't act alone.

Police say the molester used a 14-year old boy to help him find his victims at a junior high school. The young boy would become friends with other boys and lead them to Shane Foulon.

Police say the sexual abuse took place at the West Valley Recreation Center this past August. Foulon allegedly fondled one victim in the pool. Later the abuse became more forceful.

Police say Foulon used his 14-year old friend to hold down another 14-year old boy while Foulon sexually assaulted him. An abusive act the victim's mother learned about later when she said she finally figured out why her outgoing son all of a sudden became withdrawn.

Tina, Victim's Mother: “I was sickened and it brought back a lot of pain when I was little. I had the same thing happen, and I promised that it would never happen to my kids, and it did. These guys are predators and they know exactly what to do."

She also says there may be more victims. Police say Foulon does have a criminal history. He was arrested in 1998 in Tooele and charged with six counts of lewdness involving a child. Those charges were later dropped.

If he is convicted of this current charge of forcible sexual abuse he could spend the next 15 years in prison.
