A Logan man accused of raping a teen girl at a party in a Logan hotel room in August 2017 pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a third-degree felony, and was sentenced Tuesday to 120 days in jail.

Juan Valdovinos-Sanchez, 21, was arrested in March last year after the girl accused him of rape in an interview with the Division of Child and Family Services.

The victim reportedly told investigators that she was given methamphetamine and alcohol by several adult men at the hotel and later blacked out. She did not remember being sexually assaulted, but friends informed her that a male — later identified as Valdovinos-Sanchez — took her into a bathroom and “may have had sex with her.”

Valdovinos-Sanchez was sentenced to zero to five years in prison, which will be stayed while he completes probation, including 103 days in the Cache County Jail after he is given credit for time already served.

He will be allowed work-release and will also be required to go through sex offender treatment, comply with Group A sex offender conditions, and either pay a $600 fine or complete 60 hours of community service.
