Brent Brown made his first appearance in court on December 22, 2021, after he was arrested for kidnapping and raping 19-year-old Madelyn Allen. The 39-year-old Utah man asked the judge to grant him bail so that he could spend the Christmas holidays with his children, but it appears Judge Wallace Lee was not in such a festive spirit. The Sixth District Court judge ordered Brown to be held without bail

As we earlier reported, Allen was found naked in the home of Brown, after the two met on a bondage group chat. She was reported missing initially by her roommates, sparking a police search in Wayne County. The sudden disappearance of Allen comes weeks after the shocking death of Vincenzo Lirosi, a New Hampshire uni student who was also reported missing. With the case of Gabby Petito dominating headlines earlier in 2021, missing person cases have quickly become viral stories this year.

Thankfully, Allen was found safe and well and has now been reunited with her family. As for Brown, it may be a long time before he sees his family. The Utah man is facing six felony charges and a long stint in prison if convicted. It also isn't his first brush with the law, here's everything we know about Brown. 

Who is Brent Brown?

The 39-year-old is reportedly out of work, which is why he was given a court-appointed lawyer for his case. That appears to contradict the facts of the case because it was reported Allen was tied up while Brown "went to work". According to his Facebook profile, it appears Brown is working as an equipment operator at Allied, a job he has had since 2017. In court documents, he listed his primary address in Kearns and noted the Loa address where Allen was being held belonged to his parents.

A quick review of his Facebook profile reveals right-wing memes promoting Donald Trump and the Second Amendment, as well as mocking President Joe Biden and Covid-19 countermeasures. But more worrying than his disdain for Covid-19 prevention is his criminal record. Over the years, he's had multiple run-ins with law enforcement. In March 2018, a warrant was issued in his name for in Box Elder County after he failed to appear before a judge in a witness tampering case. Since then, he's also been named in two other warrants,

It appears one of those warrants is still active, which was why Judge Lee refused to grant him bail. Few details are available about the warrant. The Daily Mail reported that one is for failure to appear on a traffic citation in Cache County. The other is for unknown charges in Wasatch County. Since his arrest on December 18, Brown has been held at the Sevier County Jail.

Since the judge denied Brown bail, he will reportedly continue to be held at the jail till his next court appearance on January 10. So it appears he's going to spend Christmas alone, without his family. It's not known if Brown is married, but reportedly, he has several children.
