LOGAN, Utah, Feb. 12, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A 20-year-old Hyrum woman was sentenced Tuesday for unlawful activity with a minor and for domestic violence in the presence of a child, both third-degree felonies.

Eva Maria Flores previously had pleaded guilty to both counts as part of a plea deal. Charges dismissed as part of the deal included aggravated assault, a second-degree felony, and two additional charges of unlawful sexual activity involving a minor, a third-degree felony, according to court documents.

The sexual activity involving a minor charges stem from three June 2017 incidents in which Flores was accused of encouraging a 14-year-old girl to have sex with two men, one of whom — 21-year-old Jesus Diaz-Orozco — was sentenced to 5-years-to life after being convicted of rape. The second man’s case has been delayed.

The assault charge was filed after an April 1, 2018 incident in which Flores, out on bail, was accused of stabbing her boyfriend in the presence of their two children.

Flores was sentenced to serve two one-year terms in jail, to run concurrently. Judge Brian Cannell said that, as part of the sentence, he would allow her to be released from jail early if she completed an in-house treatment program.
