According to charging documents, the alleged abuse occurred on repeated occasions between 2011 and 2012 while the girl was sleeping over at Acosta's home in Orem. The victim was between 10 and 11 when the alleged abuse occurred.
Charges state that the girl first reported the alleged abuse to her ecclesiastical leader in 2018. She was advised by her church leader to talk to a therapist, who in turn advised her to tell her parents. The girl's parents then contacted law enforcement.
