LOGAN — A 59-year-old former North Logan man has been sentenced to prison for molesting two neighbor girls in 2021. Glen Richard Walker was ordered to serve two concurrent sentences of 15-years-to-life at the Utah State Correctional Facility.

According to court records, Walker was sentenced Monday, April 29, in Logan’s 1st District Court. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.

According to prosecutors, North Park Police officers began investigating Walker after the two victims, aged 5 and 7-years-old, explained how their neighbor had touched them inappropriately. The older girl also told investigators that Walker had attempted to rape her.

The girls were interviewed by officials at the Children’s Justice Center as part of the investigation. They provided additional details about the incidents.

Police also report that Walker admitted to touching the older girl, when confronted by the victim’s father.

During Monday’s hearing, Judge Edwin Peterson issued the maximum sentence for the crimes Walker had confessed to. He also refused to give any credit for time already served in the Cache County Jail.

The Utah Department of Parole and Probation will determine when Walker will be eligible for release, likely not until at least 2039.
