Gary Herbert. But for religious leaders, parents, Scout leaders, doctors, adult baby sitters or others in “a position of trust,” the sentence would still be no more than one year in jail. To some, such as the bill’s sponsor Rep. LaVar Christensen, R-Draper, the disparity makes sense as a preventative measure — upping the ante may be more effective at discouraging ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
