A former Spanish Fork police officer is facing criminal charges of voyeurism and forcible sexual abuse.

According to a probable cause statement, a woman who had a protective order against Aaron Sam Foster, 38, of Springville, awoke to find him groping and kissing her. The woman told police Foster had stolen her underwear, and “he admitted to her that he had taken them and returned some but not all.”

The woman said she discovered naked pictures of her that Foster had taken while she was sleeping. According to police, Foster “stated that he had taken the photos,” and he “also admitted to video recording her through the blind from the outside of her home.”

Foster has been charged in 4th District Court with forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony; three counts of voyeurism and one count of theft, class-B misdemeanors; one count of voyeurism by electronic equipment and one count of sexual battery, class-A misdemeanors.

Because Foster was a Spanish Fork police officer from 2007 to 2010, the case was turned over to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.
