brother of an LDS stake president
01/01/91 Logan, Utah
LDS Jay Toombs ” of Benson, Utah. Toombs faces three counts of aggravated sexual
abuse of a child for fondling a 1 0-year-old boy in 1 993 and 1 994. This case did not go to
trial because the Statute of Limitations had expired. The mother, who is not being identified
in order to protect her son’s identity, says she spoke of Toombs’ misbehavior with boys from
1991 through 1999 with Cooper, two LDS bishops and Toombs’ family, including his brother,
an LDS stake president.
“1 was always told to be patient with Jay, he was a good man. That’s what 1 was told again
and again and again. 1 was even given priesthood blessings that 1 had been chosen to help
him,” she says.
The bishops were inclined each time to tell police, the woman says, but later told her they
had checked with church officials and learned they did not have to report Toombs as long as
he was repentant and getting professional help.”
