ROY — A victim has come forward to claim that Brian Jack Anderson, 35, had sex with her “hundreds of times” between 2010 and 2013, abuse that allegedly occurred when the victim was under 14 years of age. 

Anderson was charged Aug. 30 by the Weber County District Attorney with rape of a child and aggravated sexual abuse of a child, both first-degree felonies.

Roy police said that the complaint was first brought to authorities for investigation in April 2016, and the victim was interviewed by Child Protective Services at the Brigham Children’s Justice Center. 

Anderson frequently had the victim over for “sleepovers” in which he sometimes supplied the victim with alcohol and “spice,” or synthetic marijuana, before having intercourse with the victim, charging documents said.

In a clandestinely recorded phone call with the victim in which “sexual abuse was only alluded to,” Roy police said Anderson apologized for “what happened.”

Roy police said that in their interviews with Anderson, he “denied the allegations” but “made several contradicting statements and altered and changed his story several times to fit the evidence presented to him.” 

Anderson is out of custody on $42,000 bail and is scheduled to appear Sept. 5 in Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
