FARMINGTON A Swedish man accused of trying to arrange a sexual rendezvous with an underage girl while on vacation in the United States made a brief appearance in 2nd District Court on Wednesday.
Court clerks said Bjorn Erik Larsson, 47, waived his right to a preliminary hearing, where a judge would have decided if there was enough evidence to make him stand trial. He will enter a plea at his arraignment on Aug. 28, the court said.
Davis County prosecutors said Larsson is accused of trying to arrange a sexual rendezvous with a 13-year-old girl while vacationing in Utah. The girl was really an undercover Layton police officer.
Prosectuors are declining to comment on the case.
"We just need to let the process take its course," said deputy county attorney Richard Larsen.
Larsson remains in jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
