“Rape suspect waives preliminary hearing
By The Daily Herald – | Nov 26, 2003
PROVO — A Cedar Hills man, charged with raping, sodomizing and sexually abusing a young female numerous times this year, appeared before 4th District Judge Steven Hansen on Tuesday for a waiver hearing.
Glen Borst, 45, waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and Hansen scheduled a pre-trial conference for Dec. 16. However, the case may not make it to trial, county prosecutor Dave Sturgill said.
“We’re working on an entry of plea,” he said.
Borst is charged with six first-degree felonies including rape, sodomy and aggravated sexual abuse of a child, and a third-degree felony charge of dealing in material harmful to a minor, which includes harmful behavior in front of a minor.
The child in this case is under 13 years old, Sturgill said.
The victim was interviewed by police and told them about the sexual abuse, according to American Fork Police Officer B.J. Eckles in a police report. She said the incidents had happened over the course of a year.
Borst was later interviewed, on Sept. 18, and confessed to what the victim had said.
Borst told police that the abuse had started in May and that the last occurrence was just before the state fair, which was the weekend of Sept. 6.
The state says a deal is likely because of Borst’s confessions.
In his initial appearance, on Sept. 26, Borst’s bail was reduced from $50,000, and he is now out of Utah County Jail on $25,000 bond. Hansen also ordered that Borst have no contact with the victim.”
