Sterling Allan

A Fountain Green man received the maximum sentence Friday for sexually abusing two infant girls between 2003 and 2009 while living in Eagle Mountain.

Sterling Allan was sentenced by Judge Darold McDade to 15 years to life in the Utah State Prison for two first-degree felony charges of attempted sodomy on a child.

The sentence for each charge will run consecutively to each other, but because of the sentencing guidelines, prosecuting attorney Craig Johnson said Allan will likely have his first parole hearing in 22 years.

“Certainly 22 years minimum fits the punitive needs of our community,” Johnson said.

Allan, 52, was also fined $20,000.

Allan was found through a joint operation between the FBI and the Utah County Sheriff’s Office. A court affidavit states the FBI became aware of Allan in December 2015 when they found his YouTube channel. In several videos he admits to being a pedophile who has committed several sex offenses against children, reports state.

The victims were interviewed in January 2016 and told police that because of their age they don’t remember the abuse, reports state.
