Gomez, who was charged with three counts of sodomy on a child and three counts of child sexual abuse, was accused of abusing a boy on many occasions in 1989 and 1990 after the boy sought counseling from him at the age of 13.The alleged victim did not report the abuse until 2004. By that time, a four-year legal deadline to prosecute Gomez for adult sex crimes had already passed.Gomez, who was an administrator for the Utah Department of Corrections, was instead charged under a 1991 law allowing child sex crime charges to be filed within four years of when an adult victim reports them, regardless of when they occurred. Although the alleged victim in the case against Gomez says he can recall the events, he is less clear about the exact dates they occurred, according to court documents.Parker said in court he had hoped to use information from a witness who kept a journal entry to prove Gomez sexually abused the victim in the spring of 1989 before his 14th birthday. But Gomez produced old day planner entries and correspondence that placed doubt on whether the abuse occurred during that time frame, Parker told the court Monday.

...
A second victim also came forward to allege Gomez had repeatedly abused him as well, according to court documents.Gomez was never charged with the alleged crimes as that victim was clearly 14 when the events supposedly occurred and prosecution deadlines had already passed, the documents said.
...
Gomez, the former director of Utah Correctional Industries at the Utah State Prison, was fired a year ago after the abuse charges were filed.It was unclear Monday whether Gomez could get his job back now that the charges have been dismissed.

Deputy Salt Lake County District Attorney Paul Parker said Monday that the prosecution was frustrated by the state's definition of sexual abuse of a "child" as someone younger than 14 years of age, the time limits on prosecuting sex crime cases and day planner records from David James Gomez, the accused 58-year-old.
