A Bonneville County man is arrested after a teenage girl comes forward saying she was sexually abused by this family friend for the past two years.
According to law enforcement, 46 year old Scott Beck of Ammon was arrested June 26th on two felony counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16.
According to statements the victim made to investigators, Beck started inappropriately touching her in the summer of 2007. Over time, the abuse progressed from touching and kissing to more serious acts, says the report. Violation dates are from June 2007 to June 2009, according to Prosecutor Dane Watkins Junior.
Beck is currently out on $25,000 bond. He will be back in court next week for his preliminary hearing.
He faces up to 25 years in prison on each count if convicted.
