Boulder County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested Mark Baertschy, 35 years of age, of Boulder, for Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust, contrary to CRS 18-3-405.3(1), a Class 3 felony. If convicted, Mr. Baertschy faces a possible penalty of four to twelve years in prison. The victim, a 14 year-old male, alleged that Mr. Baertschy engaged in a pattern of progressively more intrusive consensual sexual contacts with him over the course of the past two years. Further details of the investigation must remain confidential at this point, both to protect the identity of the victim and to preserve the integrity of the investigation. Investigation has revealed, however, that Mr. Baertschy has volunteered with Boulder County Partners and the Broadway Shelter (affiliated with Attention Homes, Inc), and may have had contact with other youths through the programs. Both agencies are cooperating with Sheriff’s investigators. The Sheriff’s Office is providing Mr. Baertschy’s mug photograph (attached) in the hope that if there are any other victims, they may recognize him and come forward. Anyone with information to offer is asked to contact Detective Carolyn Roberts at #303/441-3641 Mr. Baertschy was taken into custody Friday evening, March 31st, at his home in Gunbarrel. He is currently free on a $25,000.00 bond.
