A Logan man charged with aggravated sexual abuse of a child who has been held on a no-bail status in the Cache County Jail now has the option to bail out.

Weston E. Davidson was arrested July 23 on suspicion of sexually abusing children. He was arraigned in 1st District Court last week. At the time, there was concern for Davidson’s well-being, so he was placed on a no-bail status.

Logan police officers say they became aware of the alleged abuse after they were asked to check on Davidson’s welfare when he walked away from a confrontation with family members. The search for Davidson took law enforcement over the Short Divide, into Box Elder County and back into Cache County, where he was apprehended near the boat docks on State Road 30.

Davidson was first hospitalized and treated for a minor self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, then booked into the Cache County Jail.

During the search, details of the sexual abuse were shared with police. After his arrest, he was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree-felony offense.

On Monday, Judge Kevin Allen reconsidered Davidson’s bail and set it at $30,000, but as of Wednesday afternoon, he remained incarcerated.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 20.
