DUCHESNE COUNTY (News4Utah) A Duchesne County man faces several charges after deputies say he sexually abused three boys.

The victims, ranging in age from 8 to 11, told Duchesne County investigators that Jacob Gary Christensen sexually abused them when they spent the night at his house.

A report by the sheriff’s office indicates the incidents happened at different times during the last year. Christensen faces multiple charges of sexual abuse of a child and sodomy of a child.

Christensen worked part-time as a custodian and computer aide at Neola Elementary School during the 2017-18. The children Christensen is accused of abusing are not students at the school.

He is being held on an $80,000 cash only bond.

Detectives continue to investigate this case. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office at 435-738-2015.
