Four first-degree felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child are brought against Dale L. Andreason, 70.
However, a person who knows him claimed Andreason acknowledged to having “fantasies about children he teaches but has not acted on them,” according to the police report. The accused victims of Andreason’s alleged assault were not his students.
First-grade instruction is provided by Andreason at Elk Run Elementary in Magna. He was put on leave on September 16, a few days before his arrest, after the Granite School District was made aware of the investigation and the “disturbing material,” according to a district official.
According to the district’s communication to the parents of Elk Run pupils, there was “no indication” that Andreason had molested any students.
Additionally, according to arrest records, Andreason tutors 11- and 12-year-olds at a church. They did not mention his church affiliation or whether he still maintains that role.
Police got a report that Andreason had been spotted inappropriately touching a girl (whose age was not disclosed), prompting them to look into the allegations of abuse against him. According to court records, this took place at a party early this year at a residence in West Valley City.
The person who made the accusation claimed that Andreason had inappropriately touched her around 15 years earlier, when she was a teenager.
Police claimed they discovered three more victims as they were doing their investigation. One woman said Andreason inappropriately touched her when she was just four years old. Police stated that the other “was not willing to come forward during this inquiry” despite the fact that another verified she was a “victim of the suspect but could not disclose details at this time.”
Andreason was arrested and sent to the Salt Lake County Jail, where he was given a no-bail warrant.
