Robertson was interviewed by Orem police, his probable cause statement says. After being informed of his Miranda rights, Robertson told officers he had touched the victim inappropriately for at least a period of two years, and had had intercourse with the victim at least 10 times, the statement says.

Due to the young woman’s intellectual limitations, police deemed her unable to provide consent to the acts.

Robertson is being held in the Utah County Jail without bail.
