Oct. 25, 2017
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The owner of a Utah bounce-house business has agreed to a plea deal in a sex abuse case.
Court documents show Bryce Johnson of Heber City pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted aggravated sexual abuse of a child and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Another 20 counts filed in two cases were dismissed in exchange for the guilty pleas on Oct. 18.
The 33-year-old man was accused of abusing children hired to help in with his business, Fun Stuff LLC, and possessing child pornography.
He is set to be sentenced Dec. 13. He faces three years to life in prison on each sexual abuse count and one to 15 years on each sexual exploitation count.
His lawyer Tara Isaacson declined to comment beyond the details of the plea agreement.
