KAYSVILLE - Police don’t know why a 43-year-old sex offender turned himself in to the Davis County Jail in Farmington.

Norman Douglas Deem showed up at the Davis County Jail on Wednesday to turn himself in after having been on the run for eight months. He wouldn't tell them why he had decided to turn himself in or where he had been.

“Our investigators interviewed him and he told them he wanted an attorney before he would speak with them,” said Kaysville Police Lt. Kenton Pies on Thursday.

Deem pleaded guilty in February 2013 to two second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

He was to be sentenced in June but failed to appear for his hearing.

In 2008, Deem had pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sexual abuse of a child. Court documents indicate he was placed on three years probation that he completed successfully. As part of his sentence, he was to register his home address with the state sex offender registry list.

On May 8, 2013, Kaysville police became involved when Deem failed to register his Kaysville address with the state registry, Pies said.

Then, the next day, Unified Police in Salt Lake County found Deem’s car and what appeared to be a “staged suicide.”

Warrants were issued for his arrest and he had been missing since then until Wednesday.
