(KUTV) — Alexander Winward pleaded guilty Monday in 2nd District Court in Farmington to four first-degree felony accounts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
Winward was arrested in September 2017 for molesting 9 boys between the ages of 7 and 12 at his home over a period of about a year.
He was 18 years old when he was charged with eight felony counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child after engaging in inappropriate sexual contact on multiple occasions, according to charging documents.
Police said Winward would tell his victims that he wanted to “play a game,” after which he pulled down their pants and fondled them.
Winward will be sentenced on July 10th.
