ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - Law enforcement records obtained by a Utah newspaper show police across the state investigated allegations of sexual misconduct against a man before he was charged with raping a Dixie State University student.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/2rIWnSl ) reports none of the other six investigations against 22-year-old Samuel H. Butler, of St. George, resulted in charges. But Dixie State police chief Don Reid says officials may re-interview some women involved in an effort to show Butler’s “mode of operation.”

In one case, records show Butler told a Utah Highway Patrol trooper in 2015 he was distraught because he had sexually assaulted three girls eight years earlier. Investigators say two of the alleged victims declined to press charges.

Butler’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment from the newspaper.
