BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) - A former counselor for a Brigham Young University religious camp for youth has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing a boy.

Twenty-nine-year-old Keldon Cook was booked into the Davis County Jail on Thursday for investigation of three counts of sodomy.

The boy told investigators he was 14 when he attended BYU’s weeklong Especially For Youth program and met Cook in 2012.

According to a police, the two kept in contact for two years and exchanged nude photographs of themselves over Snapchat.

Cook is accused of meeting the boy three times in 2014 and sexually abusing him each time.

Canyons School District spokesman Jeff Haney told The Salt Lake Tribune that Cook was an assistant cheerleading coach at Alta High School in Sandy this past school year, but the district has “no reason to believe” Cook abused any students.
