Man Charged For Alleged Sexual Abuse Of Children

A man accused of sexually assaulting five children made his initial appearance in 1st District Court on Tuesday.

Fernando Carrillo, 47, faces 11 charges — nine counts of first-degree aggravated sexual abuse of a child and two counts of first-degree attempted rape of a child. The charges were filed against Carrillo on Tuesday.


Court records list the two attempted rape charges against Carrillo as second-degree felonies. Though a charge involving an attempt can result in reduction in degree, Cache County prosecutor Griffin Hazard confirmed all charges against Carrillo were first-degree felonies as reflected in the charging information filed with the court.
