Two-day trial set for sex case


On Thursday, a 30-year-old Clark man charged with sexually harassing a woman had his case set for a two-day trial in District Court.

The man was arrested in February when he allegedly broke into a Steamboat Springs office and sexually harassed a female employee. He is facing five charges, including sexually contacting a person without consent, a Class 4 felony, burglary, criminal mischief, false impersonation and violating a protection order.

According to court documents, the man entered the office, took off all his clothes, "snuck up" on the woman and fondled her breasts.

The man allegedly grabbed the woman by the arm and then grabbed her a second time, ripping her blouse.

The woman had a restraining order against the man at the time of the assault.

The man later turned himself in to Routt County Jail.

The man already pleaded guilty to a 2003 incident in which he exposed his genitalia to a woman at a laundromat. He received a six-month prison sentence and was placed on two years of parole for that conviction.

The trial is scheduled for Feb. 9 and 10.
