"Gregory Nathan Peterson, 37, of Orem, was charged Wednesday 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City with 23 felony counts, including rape and kidnapping, and two misdemeanors. A jail log indicates U.S. marshals arrested Peterson in his home in Heber and booked him into the Salt Lake County jail. He remained there Thursday in lieu of $750,000 bail."
In one of the cases, he met at a church function and asked her to join him at the movies. Afterward, he told her he had a gun, and took her to a cabin in Heber, Utah, where he both physically and sexually assaulted her. Peterson often uses the same cabin to host fundraisers for prominent Utah Republicans, including Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, among others, as well as for annual Republican barbecues and gatherings. His Facebook page, according to the Tribune,featured several photos of him with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint.
