Former West Jordan Primary teacher pleads guilty to sexually abusing child
WEST JORDAN, Utah – A West Jordan man who taught in a congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child on Friday.
According to court documents, 49-year-old Sean Sund was a Primary teacher in his ward and was accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl in June 2018.
Documents show that Sund held sleepovers at his house with children in his ward, but only one victim was reported.
Sund was charged with five counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all are first-degree felonies.
However, in a plea deal, he pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.
Sund’s case was scheduled to appear for a jury trial this June before the deal was reached.
After reaching bail, he has been on supervised release for the last four years.
Sund’s sentencing is scheduled for September 1st. The plea deal recommends that he spends 364 days in jail, but the judge will decide his sentence.
