was a Mormon church member; accused of sexual abuse

Case Summary

“SALT LAKE CITY — A former third-grade teacher is headed to federal prison for making child pornography.

A U.S. District Court judge sentenced Kyle Mark Hill, 33, of Provo, to 15 years behind bars followed by a lifetime of supervised release on Wednesday. He earlier admitted to one count of production of child pornography.

Hill, who was a teacher at Endeavor Hall Charter School in West Valley City, is also accused in state court of pulling a 9-year-old boy aside during recess and taking inappropriate pictures of him, according to charging documents.

He would “ask him what color his underwear was and (the boy) would show his underwear to Hill. On numerous occasions, Hill would keep him in the classroom while the rest of the class was at recess and ask him to take off his clothes for pictures in his underwear and while naked,” the state charges state.

The boy was allegedly abused in September and December of 2017. Police said Hill would give the boy extra candy or “class money” for answering “yes and no” questions he gave him.

Hill was ordered to stand trial in state court on a charge of aggravated sex abuse of a child, a first-degree felony, last summer. A trial is scheduled for January.”
