County Sheriff’s Report


A North Summit man convicted of molesting a boy will be sentenced for his crimes after a judge determined him mentally competent Tuesday afternoon.

Arvin Moore was found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony and dealing in harmful material to a minor, a second-degree felony.

The man could be ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Three doctors and two Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies testified this week at a competency hearing for Moore.

At the time of the abuse the victim was around 12 years old, court documents filed by prosecutors in 3rd District Court state. A man reported the abuse to the authorities March 9, 2006, after the boy reportedly made the accusations to a religious leader.

The boy was abused in the North Summit area while working for Moore doing odd jobs like tending cows and mowing the lawn.

Those convicted of first-degree felonies in Utah could face life in prison and be ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. Second-degree felonies carry a possible punishment of one to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
