FARMINGTON — Sex abuse charges have been dropped against a woman who worked at a residential treatment program for juvenile sex offenders.
Second-degree felony forcible sex abuse charges have been dropped against Becky Evans by 2nd District Judge Robert Dale. She had been employed at Youth Health Associates.
The charges were dismissed because the boy victim who accused her refused to testify, said Deputy Davis County Attorney Christina Ortega.
Evans had been accused of having the 16-year-old boy “touch her breasts and genital, skin to skin,” between October and December 2011, according to court documents that were filed in March of 2012.
The teen “had been committed to the YHA facility for treatment for sexual offenses he committed against a minor,” the court document said.
Evans’ attorney Mark Moffat said his client has maintained her innocence and that the boy had been the aggressor.
