Maeser, Ut.- On 4/3/23, the Utah Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) received a child abuse neglect report regarding a possible sexual abuse involving a 13-year-old female victim.


The victim was interviewed at the Criminal Justice Center in Vernal. During the interview, the victim disclosed that 19-year-old McKenzie Lynn Moore forced the victim onto the bed by placing her hand around the victim’s throat.

While Moore had the victim on the bed, she touched the victim inappropriately. The victim also stated that a second incident occurred where Moore again touched the victim inappropriately inside the victim's bedroom.

Both incidents occurred at the victim’s home in Uintah County between March 12th and March 22nd, 2023.

During the interview with Moore, she admitted that sexual acts were conducted with the 13-year-old victim while both were fully clothed. Moore denied grabbing the victim by the throat but admitted that she knew the victim was a minor but didn't know she was only 13.

Due to the victim disclosing that Moore used force by grabbing her by the throat and pushing her onto the bed, where she sexually touched the victim, McKenzie was booked into the Uintah County Jail for aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony.

Due to the victim disclosing on a second occasion, McKenzie again sexually touched the victim. She is being charged with sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.

According to the Utah code, any touching, even if accomplished through clothing, is sufficient to constitute the relevant element of either subsection listed above.

She also needs an evaluation for her mental health and level of competency. She truly has a disability. She literally cannot even process basic thought processes . It's unfortunate because her family has nothing to do with her at all. There is nothing any of my children could do that would make me ghost them from my life for good! She seriously is mentally slow. Absolutely does not have anything to do with the crime she committed! She deserves what she is getting. However, she has been failed by family and the system terribly.. I am sure she will end up in prison because of this. Sad story for both families.

I am McKenzie’s Father! I believe she needs to be held accountable for her actions and be punished by the courts!
