FARMINGTON — A former Northridge High School drama teacher will go to trial April 4-6 on three counts of rape.
Jeremy Page Flygare, 32 of Sunset, was in 2nd District Court last week, charged with three counts of first-degree felony rape. Each of the counts carries a possible sentence of five years to life in the Utah State Prison.
The trial will be held in 2nd District Court in Bountiful.
He was arrested on May 10, after Layton police say they received information on March 31 about an alleged inappropriate relationship between Flygare and a female student.
According to police, the student told them she and Flygare were intimate 10-15 times, and had intercourse at the school. Police spent the next month investigating.
Because Flygare was in a position of trust, the relationship is considered nonconsensual under Utah code.
Flygare had worked at Northridge High School as a drama teacher since August 2007.
His employment has been terminated.
Federal prison sentence for gate crasher
FARMINGTON — A man who accepted a plea deal for crashing a vehicle into a concrete barrier at Hill Air Force Base was ordered to one day’s court probation in 2nd District Court on Monday.
However, Teofilo Frankie Quintana, 41, will serve time in prison, after being sentenced to serve 27 months in federal prison last week on a related crime.
Quintana was in U.S. District Court on Thursday, where he was sentenced to four-plus years on one count of bank fraud and another 24 months for aggravated identity theft.
He was also ordered to pay nearly $6,000 in restitution to the owner of the vehicle he stole and later crashed into the base barriers and another $16,570 to the U.S. Air Force for repairs to the security equipment he damaged.
On Monday in 2nd District Court, Quintana pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony for the incident at Hill AFB.
The federal charges stem from stolen items that were found in the vehicle which Quintana crashed at the base.
Judge Michael Allphin and Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland agreed that it would be difficult to keep track of Quintana once he was in the federal prison system.
Allphin sentenced Quintana to serve zero to five years in the Utah State Prison, then suspended the sentence.
He then sentenced Quintana to the one day court probation.
Quintana’s pleas dealt with the August 19, 2009 incident, in which he received a stolen vehicle, drove it past security guards at the base, and crashed the vehicle into concrete barriers.
He then hid on base for several hours before being arrested by base security.
When officers searched the vehicle Quintana had crashed, they found stolen checks, personal information and fake ID’s.
Jumpstart for program received
FARMINGTON — Two combined checks of $35,000 each were received Tuesday that will provide a $70,000 jump start to inaugurate Davis County’s Alzheimer’s support and prevention program.
The Davis County Commission received the checks from the Alzheimer’s Association of Utah and the Davis County Gala 2010 Committee.
The funds will be used to start the new Alzheimer’s Support Program to be housed in the new North Davis Senior Activity Center which is due to open within the next 60 days in Clearfield.
Programs will include support and assistance for the thousands of caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients living within the county, as well as other services, the commission was told.
It’s estimated that 10 million people who are considered baby boomers now or within the next few years across the country could be directly impacted by the disease, the commission was told.
“This will be a great way to move the program forward,” said County Commission Chair John Petroff. “When the Alzheimer’s Association stepped forward (when the October gala was being planned) it seemed an obvious choice” to be the supported charity this year, he said.
The charity of the 2011 Gala has yet to be decided.
