FARMINGTON - A former Centerville therapist accused of sexually abusing a teenage client pleaded guilty on Monday, Jan. 20, to one count of forcible sexual abuse.

Scott Andrew Peterson, 36, of Bountiful pleaded guilty to the charge that was amended to a second-degree felony.

Other charges of forcible sexual abuse, forcible sodomy and lewdness were dismissed as part of a plea deal.

Peterson, who was a licensed clinical social worker, engaged in a variety of sexual encounters with the teen “at least a dozen times” according to court documents.

She was 16-years-old when the relationship began.

He was arrested by Centerville police and stripped of his license in November.

His business, "Therapy on the Fly" closed its doors in August.
