SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A former Ancestry.com executive is accused of sexually abusing his daughter’s teenage friend in Utah.

Authorities say 50-year-old Daniel D. Taggart of Highland faces felony charges of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse. He also faces charges of dealing harmful materials and supplying alcohol to a minor.

The 15-year-old girl told police she visited Taggart’s daughter in July 2014. He allegedly provided alcohol and suggested games, including a “twerking” contest with sex toys as prizes.

The girl claims the sexual abuse began when Taggart put on a pornographic video after his daughter fell asleep.

Ancestry.com said Taggart is a former executive who left the company 15 years ago.

The AP sought comment on the charges from Taggart, but could not verify whether he had a listed telephone number or an attorney.
