ROOSEVELT, Utah, January 5, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — A phone store employee has been arrested after allegedly viewing and sharing explicit photos of a Roosevelt woman.

A probable cause statement from Duchesne 8th District Court said Marvin Herrera, 33, faces a charge of adult distribution of pornography, a third-degree felony.

The arresting officer from the Roosevelt Police Department was dispatched around 8:30 p.m. Monday on a civil matter, the statement said. A woman told the officer that some of her explicit photos had been sent to her phone from an unknown number. She told the officer that her daughter also received the photos, as they share an Apple account.

The officer ran the number where the photos and videos came from through the dispatch, and it came back as belonging to Herrera.

“She then said that was the name of the man who helped her switch phones and devices earlier in the day at AT&T,” the arresting officer wrote. “She said he helped her move things to a new device. It would have given Marvin access to his Apple account and iCloud, where the photos were stored. She said he gave her his number, but it was a different number. I ran that number diligently, it also came back belonging to Marvin.

The woman said she felt violated, according to the statement. “She had only given Marvin her account information because he was an AT&T representative and was helping her move the account to her new device,” the statement said. “She stated that she did not know or believe that Marvin would retain and use the account information to browse her stuff and photos. She especially did not like him reviewing her private and explicit photos and sends her back. She asked me what she should do and what could be done.

The next day, the officer went to the AT&T store and located Herrera as he was leaving work. Herrera was arrested and transported to the police department. He was read his Miranda rights and asked what happened. “Marvin declined to respond to this and said, I better talk to someone,” the statement read. “I then placed Marvin under arrest for distributing pornography.”

Herrera was transported to the Duchesne County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
