Smithfield man charged with voyeurism

LOGAN — A 39-year-old Smithfield man will not face felony child pornography charges at this point, as prosecutors instead filed just one count of voyeurism against David J. Denton. The charge stems from his arrest on May 13 and an ongoing investigation.

Smithfield City Police Officer Brandon Muir said as he met with Barbara Lachmar from the Cache County Attorney’s Office, it was decided there was enough evidence to file one count of voyeurism, a class A misdemeanor.

The victim is reportedly a juvenile.

Muir said he began investigating Denton after receiving a report on the allegations from caseworkers with the Division of Child and Family Services.

At the same time, Denton reportedly turned himself in at the Cache County Jail.

Muir said he couldn’t comment further because the investigation is still open and additional charges may still be filed.
