A first-grade teacher in Magna accused of criminal sexual assault
Magna, Utah – Numerous felony sex abuse charges are being brought against a 70-year-old Magna man after several alleged victims came forward to report his alleged behavior.
According to victim and witness testimony, Dale Andreason, a first grade teacher, is accused of improperly touching several young girls.
One woman claims that while looking at another woman during a Super Bowl party, Andreason touched a little girl inappropriately.
Another lady recalls an alleged 15-year-old event in which Andreason allegedly touched her submissively and roused her from sleep. The woman claimed that when the incident happened, she was 14 years old.
After learning more about Andreason’s alleged history of sexual assault, a West Valley City Police officer who had been assigned to the case on September 15 was informed that Andreason had “fantasies” about the students he teaches at school.
A probable cause affidavit claims that Andreason acknowledged having fantasies about the students he teaches, while not acting on those thoughts.
According to the police, Andreason also helps at a nearby church where he oversees teachers who work with children between the ages of 11 and 12.
Andreason now faces the following charges:
• Four Counts, Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child (First Degree Felony)
