Four days after posting bail in one child sex abuse case involving a young girl, an Orem man allegedly molested another child.
Orem police Lt. Craig Martinez said Tuesday that 18-year-old Nicholas Simmonds was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail on suspicion of lewdness involving a child, a class A misdemeanor. He allegedly pulled down the panties of a 6-year-old neighbor girl.
Simmonds had been arrested on May 24 and jailed on suspicion of three second-degree felony counts of sex abuse of a child involving a different 6-year-old girl. Prosecutors allege he had taken the girl from her yard to a nearby secluded spot and fondled her several times through her clothing.
