Once other students left, the victim told police Dewey “walked over to her and kissed her.”

In another instance the victim told police Dewey picked her up from Orem and took her to “make out point” in Mapleton. During that alleged incident the victim said Dewey kissed and inappropriately touched her.

“On the way home Dewey told her, ‘you really can’t get me fired…I don’t want to lose my job’,” the police report states.

After the victim came forward, the police report states they made contact with Dewey. 

“Dewey admitted to kissing [the victim] in his office but stated it was [her] that kissed him,” the police report states.  During the alleged “make out point”  incident Dewey told police it was the victim that started kissing him, according to arresting documents.

“Dewey said he did not stop this action as quick as he should have and said they kissed for one to two minutes,” the police report states. He denied all other allegations.  

He is facing a charge of forcible sexual abuse. Nebo School District officials say Dewey has been placed on administrative leave.
