FARMINGTON — The trial for a man accused of multiple sex abuse-related counts was cancelled Thursday after prosecutors amended charges against him in a plea deal.
Daniel Moran, 50, of Layton, is now charged with three counts of rape, two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of sexual abuse of a child and one count of sodomy upon a child, all first-degree felonies. In addition, he is charged with second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse.
He entered guilty pleas on Monday, July 29.
He had been charged with 26 felonies, including 10 counts each of rape and forcible sodomy, three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, one count of sodomy upon a child and two counts of forcible sexual abuse.
Moran was arrested in August, 2011, after a girl called police saying that Moran had hit her.
When police interviewed her, she told them that Moran had raped her multiple times over several years and that she had been asked to perform oral sex, according to a probable cause statement.
The alleged crimes were committed between November 2003 and August 2011, according to court documents.
Moran has been held in the Davis County Jail since his arrest in lieu of $100,000 bail.
No new hearing has been scheduled.
