Emery prosecutor charges teacher with felony abuse

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Emery County Attorney's Office has filed a criminal complaint in 7th District Court charging Brandy Yates with forcible sexual abuse.

The 29-year-old defendant was a teacher at San Rafael Junior High School in Ferron when the alleged incident occurred in February.

The charge is a second degree felony offense because the alleged victim is a student and because of Yates' position of special trust, as defined by Utah law, indicated the Emery County Attorney's Office.

Yates has been cooperating in the investigation and will be summoned into court.

The second degree felony charge stems from alleged parties involving student guests purportedly hosted by Yates at her residence, according to the state prosecutor's office and Emery County sheriff's department investigators. Reports of alleged underage drinking at the Yates residence are also a concern.

Sheriff's office detectives have been investigating the allegations, taking reports and interviewing the parties purportedly involved in the case.

The defendant is scheduled to appear in the district court before Judge Bruce K. Halliday on April 18 at 9 a.m.
