Criminal charges have been filed against a man whose arrest was publicized in YouTube-esque detail on the Utah attorney general's newly revamped Web site.
Adam B. Rich, 26, was charged Thursday in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court with one count of dealing in material harmful to a minor, a third-degree felony; and two counts of class-A misdemeanor unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
Rich is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday on the charges.
The arrest was videotaped and publicized on Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's newly redesigned Web site, attorneygeneral .utah.gov. The American Civil Liberties Union criticized it, accusing Shurtleff of political grandstanding and expressing concern that any arrested person would be considered automatically guilty.
