Utah Man Thought He Was Meeting 13-Year-Old Girl For Sex, Police Say –- And He Brought His 4-Year-Old Daughter Along

Isaias Magana allegedly discussed different sex acts with a person he thought was a 13-year-old girl, and expressed concern that he might get her pregnant. 

A Utah man drove to meet an underage girl for sex with his 4-year-old daughter in the back seat and drugs in his pocket, police say.

Isaias Magana, 39, from West Jordan, was charged on Monday for the alleged crimes, according to the Standard-Examiner in Utah.

Magana began chatting with a person he believed was a 13-year-old girl through a social media app on June 1, police say. The "girl," however, was an undercover agent with the Davis County Attorney’s Office. Magana allegedly sent explicit and obscene messages and made arrangements to meet with the girl for sex.

During their conversations, police say, Magana discussed different sexual acts and also expressed concerns about getting the girl pregnant.

On June 28, according to KSTU in Salt Lake City, he drove to a house in Farmington where he thought the "girl" lived. He was met by officers instead. He had his young daughter in the car with him and a baggie of white powder in his pocket, which he admitted was cocaine, police said.

Magana allegedly admitted to cops that he was there to have sex with the girl. Police also found disturbing child pornography videos on Magana's phone - eight videos that showed toddlers and children being raped or sodomized, according to the Deseret News in Salt Lake City.

Magana was charged with eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, which is a second-degree felony, and one count of enticing a minor by internet or text - another second-degree felony. He was also charged with possession of drugs - a class A misdemeanor.

Magana is currently being held at the Davis County Jail. His bail is set at $20,680, according to the Standard-Examiner. He'll be in Farmington’s 2nd District Court on Friday.
