21-year-old man sentenced for multiple sex crimes
BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — A 21-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday in First District Court to five years to life for each of the three counts of rape that he pled guilty to in August.
Also in August, Braydon M. Brailsford pled guilty to one count of forcible sodomy of another victim. All four counts against Brailsford are first-degree felonies.
At sentencing in Box Elder County, Judge Brandon Maynard ordered that the counts run consecutively with one another. Additionally, the sentences for the rape convictions are consecutive with the forcible sodomy conviction, which is also five years to life.
According to a news release, the 21-year-old man used social media as a way to meet and sexually assault 12 different women between 2016 and 2021. The defendant is currently awaiting sentencing from a separate case in Cache County.
