Federal case being filed against Draper man

A Draper man facing an astounding 107 felony charges, 97 of which in Utah, of alleged sexual crimes involving two young girls has now been indicted in federal court. Isaac Dylan Kemp, 45, has been charged in a six-count indictment, with charges alleging he entices a minor, produced child pornography, had child pornography in his possession, transferred obscene materials to minors, and traveled to another state to have sex with a minor. Kemp had initially been charged in Salt Lake's U.S. District Court, however, two separate cases filed by the Utah Attorney General's Office were dismissed in order to allow the case to continue in the federal system.

The federal indictment does not give any clear or specific details as to the the allegations against Kemp, however it has been confirmed by a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office that the federal charges involve the same two victims as the state charges did. Kemp was charged with 98 different felonies alleging sexual crimes involving the two girls, a 12-year-old girl in North Carolina and a girl in Nebraska who was 13 at the time Kemp began a sexual relationship with her. The investigation turned up "hundreds" of sexually explicit text messages and photos sent between Kemp and his victims, who believed him to be a 16-year-old boy during the conversations. 

Kemp still faces another 10 charges in Nebraska for sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony. According to officials in North Carolina no charges have been filed yet against him. Kemp has an initial trial date set for November 13.
