CACHE COUNTY, Utah, May 22, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A North Logan man has avoided state prison, but been sentenced to 210 days in jail after admitting he sexually abused a mentally handicapped woman.

David Earl Sagoe, 34, will get credit for the 69 days he has already served in the Cache County Jail.

Sagoe originally was charged with six counts of forcible sexual abuse of the woman, who officials say has the mental capacity of a 6 year old.

As part of a plea deal, Sagoe pleaded guilty to one count of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony, and to a second count that had been reduced to attempted forcible sexual abuse, a 3rd degree felony. The other four charges of forcible sexual abuse were dismissed without prejudice.

Court documents said that in the original interview, Sagoe admitted to sexaully abusing the disabled woman, with whom he held a position of trust. He was aware of her intellectual age, the statement said, adding that he was “very sorry.”
