ST. GEORGE – An 18-year-old St. George man, Paul Durborow, was arrested Wednesday for alleged sexual abuse of a child.
The police received a call from a concerned party relating to the behavior of Durborow, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said. The police questioned Durborow and an investigation was undertaken that subsequently led to Durborow’s arrest. He has been charged with five second-degree felonies related to the sexual abuse of a child, and two first-degree felonies for sodomy of a child.
“It’s an unfortunate case,” Despain said, and noted that due to the nature of the crime, the police will not be releasing any additional information regarding the matter.
In general, Despain said he encourages anyone suspicious of incidents of child abuse to not hesitate in contacting the police.
Persons charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
