LOGAN — A 40-year-old Logan man has been sentenced to six-years-to-life in prison, for sexually abusing a teenage girl.

Michael Getz appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning after previously pleading guilty in a plea deal.

Court records show Getz spoke to the court briefly before being sentenced by Judge Brian Cannell.

Getz was originally arrested in January after police were contacted by the victim’s mother.

The 13-year-old girl said Getz had abused her multiple times in 2014.

After investigating, officers telephoned Getz, who confessed and turned himself in. He originally faced five charges including one count of sodomy on a child and two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all first-degree felonies. Also dealing in materials harmful to a minor, a third-degree felony and lewdness involving a child, a class A misdemeanor.

In March, Getz accepted a plea deal, dismissing three of the charges.

Prior to being sentenced, Getz was being held in the Cache County Jail on a $100,000 bail.
