  1. So what are we talking about here? An underage employee or a child left unattended in the dinning area.

    1. Pattern of as sault so same victim over time, and for this charge the victim would have to be fourteen or younger. He is thirty years old, and its a position of trust so supervisor or caretaker.

  2. Looks like he lives in Colorado Springs, so folks in both counties should be aware in case there are other victims.
