Utah Juvenile Counselor Admits Sex Crime

Victoria Sherrow, 37-year-old former Juvenile Justice Services counselor from Ogden, Utah, has pleaded guilty to a charge of having sexual contact with a teen boy who was a state client.

Sherrow was originally charged in 2nd District Court with second-degree felony count of custodial sexual relations with a youth receiving state services in September 2012. This week she accepted a plea deal and pleaded guilty to the charge, which was amended to a third-degree felony.

Sherrow had worked as a Juvenile Justice counselor out of the agency’s Mill Creek Youth Center. She was hired in June 2006 and left the agency on Nov. 29, 2011, day after the alleged sexual incidents purportedly ended. According to the court documents the unspecified sexual acts occurred between Aug. 19 and Nov. 28 of 2011. Sherrow’s position with the state required her to counsel and supervise severely delinquent youths.
