Police say the two became friends and the girl would sometimes get a ride to work with Green, KSL reported.

Child abuse

At some point, Green started getting “touchy” with the girl, according to the charging documents obtained by KSL. He also allegedly sent her an inappropriate picture and asked for one in return, but the girl did not send one, KSL reported.

Green is also accused of inappropriately touching the girl while she was at his home in Sandy, according to KSL. “(The girl) stated that she was afraid that if she said 'no' Green would hurt her,” the charges state.

When interviewed by police, Green said “it was a lapse in judgment” and admitted he told the girl “not to tell anyone what happened between them,” according to the charges obtained by KSL.
