A four month investigation ensued after Colorado Springs police were called to look into a possible sexual assault at the end of 2010. According to KKTV.com, the investigation led to the arrest of an adult church volunteer that had been allegedly engaging in improper sexual conduct with a female minor, and possibly others. He is being charged with “Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust,” which is a felony crime in Colorado.
According to Colorado sexual offense statute 18-3-405.3, “Any actor who knowingly subjects another not his or her spouse to any sexual contact commits sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust if the victim is a child less than eighteen years of age and the actor committing the offense is one in a position of trust with respect to the victim.”
