Brady Glenn Allen, 30, who teaches digital media at Roy High School, was apprehended Wednesday after he “participated in an extremely sexual discussion” with an officer impersonating a 13-year-old on a popular application, according to a probable cause declaration gotten by the Salt Lake Tribune.
Allen asked the undercover investigator, who was dealing with the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force in Layton, for naked pictures and set up a meeting for sex, investigators stated.
Allen later got to the predetermined place, where he and his vehicle were determined by police, the newspaper reported.
He then “completely confessed” to speaking with the person he believed was a child about the illegal meetup and appearing where he believed the kid lived, along with requesting naked photos, authorities said.
An examination into Allen by Layton authorities began in August, Deseret News reported.
Allen, who taught digital media according to the school’s site, has actually been put on administrative leave, Weber School District officials said.
“We were told that the alleged criminal actions of Mr. Allen were not related to any activities that took place at Roy High School, and it did not involve any students,” district officials said in a statement to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Allen’s photo was no longer on the school’s site as of early Friday.
Allen stayed held without bail at the Weber County Jail Friday on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor and enticing or luring a minor by the internet, online records reveal..
The implicated instructor, meanwhile, does not have a criminal history in Utah aside from a couple of traffic infractions, Deseret News reported.
