was a Mormon church member in Idaho; faced eight charges, including four counts of lewd conduct with a child younger than 16

Case Summary

from a news article:

“BOISE — More than once during the first day of testimony in the trial of a man accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl, the case’s alleged victim said she had tried to forget the things she had to testify about.

Now 17 years old, the girl, who will not be identified by the Idaho Press, was 15 and 16 at the time prosecutors say Darin Ogden, then 44, abused her. He faces eight charges, including four counts of lewd conduct with a child younger than 16. All but one of the charges he faces, disseminating material harmful to a minor, are felonies. Prosecutors say he committed those crimes throughout 2018, ending in September of that year, when police began to investigate.”

We’re investigating whether this is the same Darin Ogden mentioned in an LDS Church News article.
