Police: Man arrested after he sexually assaults and takes photos of a girl then flees to a Utah County canyon

A Utah County man was arrested Saturday after police say he took nude pictures of a girl while she was sleeping and sexually assaulted her, then fled to Payson Canyon after he was confronted about what happened, FOX 13 reports.

A probable cause statement released by the Utah County jail said that on Saturday, officers were called to a report of a sexual assault of a girl by Nicolas Oram, 40.

Police say witnesses found explicit photos of the girl on Oram’s phone.

After the confrontation, the statement said, Oram became emotionally distraught and fled up Payson Canyon.

Officers found Oram and took him into custody. He was booked into the Utah County jail for one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony; one count of forcible sexual abuse, also a second-degree felony; one count of object rape, a first-degree felony; and a class-C misdemeanor charge of driving on a suspended or revoked license.

LDS parents rejoice. Their missionary kids now can call home weekly. But some worry new policy is too lax.

Whether Latter-day Saints are doing a happy dance or expressing reservations about Friday’s announcement that the faith’s missionaries can now call home weekly may depend on their generation.

Families of recent or currently serving full-time missionaries mostly expressed delight at the possibility that they might hear their kids’ voices on the phone — as well as in video chats and texts — more often than Christmas and Mother’s Day.

“This will be wonderful for our 11-year-old who misses his big brother immensely,” Salt Lake City mom Diana Grant wrote on Facebook. “It’s difficult for him to communicate by email with his brother [serving in the Philippines].”

Véronique Poznanski, who served alongside her husband as he presided over The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ mission in Paris from 2011 to 2014, called the move “inspired.”

“It seems like mission presidents have to send home more and more young missionaries who are emotionally fragile,” Poznanski, who is French but lives in Germany, wrote in an email. “Regular communication with parents, especially, could help, as they listen and give loving and reassuring advice and keep tabs on them. … [It also could aid] the families who will feel really involved in their [children’s] service, and mission presidents who can collaborate more with families in specific situations.”

This depends, she said, “on these conversations remaining edifying and of a reasonable length and that the parents don’t invite girlfriends [or boyfriends] when they expect the call.”

As a therapist, Sara Hughes-Zabawa of Billings, Mont., expects these changes “to reduce the number of missionaries coming home early, while also supporting the positive increase of missionaries’ mental health and overall emotional wellness.”

Disconnection from primary support systems often “increases anxiety and depressive symptoms,” she said. Calling more often “supports healthy connection and increases access to familiar love and support.”

It also provides missionaries another avenue to relay worries about safety, physical health and future plans.

Older members, however, worry that connecting to parents so often — though church leaders say missionaries are not expected to phone their parents every week — might distract the young men and women from their focus on proselytizing the world.

For some of these, a mission is a sacred time to devote all their energies to bringing converts to Christ, free from family dramas and romantic entanglements.

Calling home only twice a year was seen — and defended — as expressing a willingness to withdraw from the world, a noble sacrifice, which some continue to favor.

“We're shifting away from the monastic elements of missionary work,” said Steve Evans, a Salt Lake City attorney and founder of By Common Consent, a popular Latter-day Saint website, who expressed mixed feelings about the change. “I hope we can preserve the contemplative, consecrated nature of mission life.”

Then Evans added, “I'm sure we can.”

At the least, Utahn Peter Asplund hopes the phone calls won’t supplant “the detailed, hilarious and remarkable emails [like the ones I] got from my oldest when he served.”

Those electronic missives, Asplund said, “created a record of his service that will be very meaningful to him in the future.”

Neil Evans of Reston, Va., applauded the new missionary communication policy but wonders if it went too far.

“Twice a year was too little,” Evans said. “Once a week is too often.”

There’s a lot of value in “sitting down and putting your thoughts and feelings in writing,” he said. “I realize that it’s not compulsory [to call weekly], but something in the middle would have been nice. Once a month. Once every other month.”

He is unsure whether the calls will make missionaries “more or less homesick,” said Evans, who was a missionary in Virginia from 1987 to 1989 and currently has a son serving in Peru and a daughter in Brazil. Still, he is “very grateful that the church is listening and making changes.”

For their part, Latter-day Saint leaders cited missionary mental health and family involvement as among the reasons for the move.

Still, those young men (who can go out at 18) and women (who can leave at 19) serving full-time missions should “use judgment in determining the length of phone calls and video chats,” the governing First Presidency statement said, “and to be considerate of their companions.”

Family members are asked “not to initiate calls or chats but instead should wait for the missionary to contact them on his or her weekly preparation day,” the leaders said. “If a missionary’s parents live in different locations, he or she may contact each parent separately.”

The church encourages weekly communication with their families “using whatever approved method missionaries decide,” said apostle Dieter F. Uchtdorf, chairman of the Missionary Executive Council. “This may vary based on their circumstances, locations and schedules for that week. It is not expected that all missionaries will call or video chat with their parents every week. The precise manner of communication is left up to the missionary as he or she decides what will best meet their needs.”

The change also offers the chance to accommodate varied family circumstances, Uchtdorf explained in a news release, as well as better supporting those missionaries who would benefit from increased personal contact with family at home.

Missionaries are encouraged still to call their families on special occasions, Uchtdorf said, such as Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, parents’ birthdays and other culturally significant holidays.

“We love the missionaries and know the Lord values their selfless service,” Uchtdorf said. “We continue to try to find the best ways to support and help them and their families while they serve.”

Russell Stevenson cautions parents that just because their missionary can talk to them on the phone each week, doesn't mean they need to or even want to.

“I was blessed to have parents who knew when to hold off,” wrote Stevenson of East Lansing, Mich., “but not all do.”

Donovan Mitchell skipped the Slam Dunk Contest this year to focus on the end of the Jazz’s season, but he did try his hand at something new

Charlotte, N.C. • Donovan Mitchell started a second job on All-Star Saturday night. Weirdly enough, it came about because he was exhausted from his full-time gig: being the Utah Jazz’s best offensive player.

After winning the All-Star Saturday Slam Dunk Contest last year, rather than defend his title in 2019, Mitchell joined TNT’s commentary team along with Kevin Harlan, Kenny Smith, Reggie Miller and Chris Webber. Mitchell knew he would have to work with a coach to prepare new dunks; work he didn’t want to put on himself this year.

“I just know the way I felt last year, we came back and played Portland, and I felt dead tired after a quote-unquote break,” Mitchell said.

It’s not that Mitchell’s quitting the contest forever, he says. But this time around hasn’t been easy, thanks to expectations raised and a largely lost summer thanks to a nagging foot injury. Opponents also know what to expect from Mitchell now that they have a year of tape.

“It’s different when you’re the surprise than when everybody’s gunning for you. As a team, we’ve started to pick that up as well,” Mitchell said. “Guys are quicker, guys are going to force you to your weak hand, and you’re not going to get as many options to exploit as you did in your first year.”

That’s worn on Mitchell a little bit, as he holds the sixth-highest usage percentage in the NBA. Teammates know the strain he faces, but appreciate the work he puts in.

“The one game in Philly, I had zero assists, and I remember I just got hit over the head,” Mitchell said. “That whole night, I had Joe Ingles telling me ‘You better shoot the ball 35 more times,' and the next night in Boston I had 28. Having teammates like that makes my life 10 times easier.”

So to set himself up well for the future, Mitchell put together a shorter schedule in this All-Star weekend. He’s scheduled to fly out Sunday, even before the All-Star Game itself. He flew in Thursday, the day before he had to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge practice and game. He took part in an Adidas photo shoot for his new shoes to be released this summer. He went to a dinner with Dwyane Wade. And he commentated the NBA’s showcase event of All-Star Saturday.

“I’ve always wanted to do that, I’ve wanted to be like Shaq, Chuck, Kenny, Ernie, all of those guys, and to just experience that,” Mitchell said. “Now is a great time, I kind of have some knowledge after being in it last year, and I think it will be pretty cool to go out there and learn from those guys who do it on a daily basis and also played in the league.”

Mitchell, who is considering pursuing a career in broadcasting after his playing career is over, was a prominent part of ESPN’s NBA draft coverage last summer. But Saturday’s experience was the first time he was tasked with commentating on-court action live, a chance he hopes to take a lot from.

And while he was at times overshadowed by the louder members of the crew, Mitchell added real dunk-contest experience to the broadcast, something his temporary coworkers didn’t have. When Knicks guard Dennis Smith Jr. jumped over rapper J. Cole, he noted that, in that position, “You’re scared about your feet.”

Mitchell’s presence in the contest itself was missed, though, as Hamidou Diallo won an ugly contest that featured multiple misses and the kind of dunks that might be impressive during normal NBA action, but not the best that the NBA’s athletes had to offer. Diallo’s dunk over Shaquille O’Neal, which he finished with his elbow in the basket, was the highlight of the night.

“He really made a name for himself,” Mitchell said. “The Shaq dunk was incredible, man.”

The Skills Challenge — where players have to weave through cones, complete a pass through a circular target, and hit a 3-point shot — featured its most exciting finish ever, as Boston’s Jayson Tatum hit a shot from beyond half court to come back and win against Atlanta’s Trae Young. Meanwhile, Brooklyn’s Joe Harris outdueled hometown favorite Steph Curry, putting up 25, then 26 points among two rounds in the 3-Point Contest in one of its best-ever performances.

Last year, Mitchell provided a final flourish to All-Star Saturday. This year, he wants to make that same mark to the end of the Jazz’s regular season with the added benefit of more rest.

“I think mentally I need to be ready for the second half of the year, that’s really where my focus is at," Mitchell said. “I have a lot to work on and improve on. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m doing good things. As a team, I think we’re in a good place as well.”
