Guilty plea in sex crime case by former cheerleading coach

A 23-year-old man who worked as a coach at a Colorado Springs, Colorado, cheerleading academy has pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust. The guilty plea was part of a plea deal in which he could spend eight years to life in prison. He could also get 20 years to life on intensive supervised probation for a sex offender. However, this means that he could end up in a community-based corrections program. He is due to be sentenced on May 18.

This was all prompted by two Colorado women alleging they were assaulted by Cosby at least 30 years ago.

Colorado has new law: Felony now for fourth drunk driving charge

Colorado has raised the bar on DUIs. In June of last year, Colorado lawmakers enacted a bill to charge DUI offenders with a felony if they are on their fourth or subsequent offense. The new law is expected to be a deterrent for drunk drivers; it came about after a push from families who have been affected by repeat DUI offenders. Anyone who has already had three prior DUI convictions, as well as future drivers convicted over three times, will be charged with a felony if they have another DUI arrest.
