Charges filed against former middle school counselor continue to mount in Washington County



ST. GEORGE — Charges continue to mount for a former Mesquite middle school counselor who was arrested in Nevada and then extradited to Washington County to face charges filed in Utah.

On Tuesday, David Scott Curtis, 54, was charged with an additional 12 first-degree felonies that include eight counts of forcible sexual abuse, three counts of forcible sodomy and one count of sodomy of a child. This is the third case filed against Curtis and stems from an investigation that opened April 22 when another child came forward following Curtis’ arrest in Mesquite, Nevada, at the end of March.

In this case, police alleged a forensic interview found that Curtis sexually abused the child starting when the the child was under the age of 10. The abuse happened “hundreds” of times for a number of years while Curtis, who had become close to the family, was helping to care for the child while the parents worked, according to a police booking affidavit.
