A 33 year old Eagle Mountain man has been arrested and jailed on 50 first degree felony charges including rape of a child, sodomy on a child, and aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
***PRESS RELEASE*** May 17, 2018: In February 2018 investigators with the Utah County Sheriff's Office Special Victims Unit began investigating a report that a 7 year old girl had been sexually abused at a home in Eagle Mountain. Today Detectives interviewed Johnathon Damion Nixon, age 33, of Eagle Mountain, in connection with this case. During that interview Nixon admitted that he committed sexual acts with three different 7 year old girls. With one of the girls the abuse was more extensive, beginning when she was 4 years old and continuing until recently, when that victim was also 7 years old. Nixon was booked into jail on the following charges: rape of a child, first degree felony; sodomy on a child, 27 counts; and 20 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child-with a prior conviction. In this case, the sexual abuse of a child charges against Nixon are aggravated for two reasons: 1. He occupied a position of special trust in relation to the victims, as he was caring for children who were visiting at his home, and 2. He has a prior conviction for a sex offense. That other conviction is the reason Nixon is currently on the Utah Sex Offender Registry. Bail for Nixon has been set at $500,000.00 cash only.
