BURLEY • Tara Leigh Bagley, 41, a vice principal at Burley High School, was arrested Friday on charges of sexually abusing a minor.

According to a press release issued by the Cassia County Sheriff’s Office, Bagley was arrested without incident on a warrant by police near St. George, Utah. She is charged with seven counts of sexual abuse of a minor 16 to 17 years old, and is being held in the Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center on $250,000 bond.

Bagley was arrested at 9:17 a.m. Friday by the Hurricane City Police, according to staff at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The alleged events occurred from July 2011 to December 2012 in Cassia County.
