(KUTV) — A former Spanish Fork police officer is charged with seven counts related to the sexual assault of a woman he had a prior romantic relationship with. He has been arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail.

Aaron Sam Foster faces charges of sexual battery, misdemeanor theft and forcible sexual abuse, a felony, and four counts of voyeurism. He allegedly touched and took intimate pictures of a woman without her consent or knowledge and also took her underwear from her residence.

According to court documents, the Utah County Sheriff's Office investigated a claim of sexual assault from the victim. She claimed Foster took pictures of her genitals while she was sleeping. In the warrant to search Foster's phone it says he admitted to taking the photos and to grabbing her breasts without her consent but reportedly told police intimate photos were part of their prior relationship.

The documents state he also admitted to video taping and photographing the woman through her blinds, without her knowledge, while she changed her clothes. He reluctantly agreed to turn his phone over to investigators who secured a warrant, searched the device, found evidence and filed charges.

In one instance the victim asked Foster to help with her children while she had a migraine. He applied pressure to her head and she fell asleep, but woke up to find him touching her under her clothing and sucking on her earlobe. She had a panic attack and he left. After he left she discovered panties were askew and then later she discovered photos of her genitalia with a man's finger pulling her underwear to the side. The photos were on a phone linked to his phone. She told police that she didn't previously know about the photos and didn't give consent to have them taken.

She also reported panties missing from her house. Foster reportedly returned panties to her that belonged to her, but not the ones she noted were missing.

  • Forcible sexual abuse, a second degree felony
  • Voyeurism, a class B misdemeanor
  • Voyeurism, a class B misdemeanor
  • Voyeurism, a class B misdemeanor
