A Centerville therapist arrested for allegedly sodomizing a teenage girl admitted Friday to an inappropriate sexual relationship and surrendered his professional license.
Scott Andrew Peterson, 36, of Bountiful, admitted he had a sexual relationship with an adolescent client "in about June and July 2013," according to court documents filed Friday. The documents also say Peterson "desires to surrender" his license to practice as a social worker.
Peterson, a licensed clinical social worker until Friday, owned Therapy on the Fly in Centerville before it closed in August, police said. Police arrested him on suspicion of forcible sodomy, a first-degree felony, and two counts of forcible sexual abuse.
