He is a witness in a misdemeanor prostitution case against a 26-year-old woman. A Unified Police Department report said an officer found the woman and Wisan in a motel room on March 20, 2013. Both said Wisan was helping the woman financially.
The woman initially denied sex occurred, and then said some sexually activity had happened with Wisan, according to the police report. Wisan, 68, denied any sexual contact.
A bench trial for the woman was scheduled for June 11 and then July 18. Acting Taylorsville city attorney Tracy Scott Cowdell said the first trial was canceled because Wisan did not appear. Niether Wisan nor the defendant appeared July 18, but Cowdell said the woman could have been tried in absentia if Wisan had appeared for court.
Wisan's attorney, Catherine Cleveland, has said Wisan was out of town on June 11, and on July 18 he was testifying in a hearing regarding the United Effort Plan.
The UEP is the trust that owns most of the land and property in Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz. A judge appointed Wisan, an accountant, to manage the trust in 2005 after the state seized control of it from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Also on Thursday, prosecutors in Taylorsville filed an a new charge of bail jumping against the prostitution suspect. A $2,000 bench warrant has been issued for her arrest.
