LOGAN — A 38-year-old Logan man has been arrested on an alleged date-rape that occurred last year. Casey C. Bingham was booked into the Cache County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Doyle Peck said deputies began investigating Bingham in November, when a woman claimed he raped her after going to a club in Ogden. The two had a previous relationship and recently reconnected on social media.

“She was offered a ride home by Mr. Bingham because he had stated that she looked intoxicated,” explained Peck. “He drove her to her residence and asked to stay, so he could sober up, which she found interesting because he had driven her home. She gave him permission to stay there for a little while. Later that evening is when she stated that he forcefully had sexual intercourse with her, which is a result of the rape charge.”

It is believed that Bingham or someone else slipped a drug into the alleged victim’s drink while they were at the club. She remembered leaving her glass at a table unattended several times during the evening.

Bingham hasn’t had any prior major involvements with law enforcement. Detectives questioned him before his arrest but he has refused to cooperate.

Peck said they believe Bingham may have raped other women in a similar way in the past. Anyone who feels like they may have been assaulted by the suspect is asked to call law enforcement.

“Based on information we’ve obtained and the process of the investigation, our concern is that there may have been a substance used to alter her mental state, rendering her physically incapable of resisting. She made several comments about feeling a certain way. Based on this, we believe that this may have occurred to other women as well.”

Bingham remains in jail on $50,000 bail. He is expected to be arraigned in 1st District Court on formal charges Thursday afternoon.
