SANDY — A man suspected of inappropriately touching a teenage girl inside a Target store has surrendered to authorities.
James Scot Fullmer, 47, turned himself in to Sandy police Wednesday after learning that investigators were looking for him, according to Sandy Police Sgt. Dean Carriger. He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of forcible sexual abuse.
On Aug. 7, a 14-year-old girl was shopping at Target, 10130 S. State, with a friend when a man approached her, according to police. He told them to "quiet down because they were drawing unwanted attention to themselves," according to a jail report.
Fullmer then inappropriately touched one of the girls, who immediately yelled and pushed his hand away, the report states.
Store surveillance video of the suspect was distributed to the media.
Utah state court records show that Fullmer was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a child in 1990, and pleaded guilty to one count, a second-degree felony. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 18 months of probation, which he successfully completed, according to court records.
