FARMINGTON — The trial for a man accused of multiple sex abuse-related counts was cancelled Thursday after prosecutors amended charges against the man.
Daniel Moran, 50, of Layton, is now charged with three counts of rape, two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of sexual abuse of a child and one count of sodomy upon a child, all first-degree felonies. In addition, he is charged with second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse.
He had been charged with 26 felonies, including 10 counts each of rape and forcible sodomy, three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, one count of sodomy upon a child and two counts of forcible sexual abuse.
Moran was arrested in August, 2011, after a girl called police allegedly saying that Moran had hit her.
A probable cause statement said that when police interviewed her, she allegedly told police Moran had raped her multiple times over several years and that she had been asked to perform oral sex.
The crimes allegedly were committed between November 2003 and August 2011, according to court documents.
Moran has been held in the Davis County Jail since his arrest in lieu of $100,000 bail.
No new hearing date has been scheduled.
