Denver County Colorado Deputy Arrested – Sexual Assault on a Child

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | May 02, 2011 | 0 Comments

Neighbors of a Denver County Colorado deputy arrested for sexual Assault on a Child were shocked that the veteran jail guard who helped so many youth stay out of trouble, was arrested on a charge of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.  Denver sexual assault on a child charges are very serious, and in Colorado can result in lifetime (indeterminate) sentencing.

As reported online at, Mark Davis was arrested October 3, 2010, in his home in the Montbello area of Denver, Colorado.  His neighbors commented to reporters that Mr. Davis was a kind and helpful person, and on how much he had been involved in the community for the twenty some years that he has lived there.  But, their concern grows as the news of the sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust charge spreads.

This Colorado sexual assault on a child allegation came from an adult who spoke out a week prior to Mr. Davis' arrest.  Police will not disclose the age of the victim or what position of trust Mr. Davis held when the alleged Denver child sex abuse occurred.  They did say that it did not take place while he was on duty at the Denver County, Colorado jail where he has worked for the past 14 years.

Many neighbors are concerned that the sexual assault allegations against Davis are not true.  Others are concerned that there might be more victims in the community who have not come forward.  Colorado sexual assault on a child charges are extremely serious and can destroy an individual's career – even if the charged person is found not guilty at trial.

As this investigation is underway, there are many considerations involved.  The community of Montbello, Colorado, located in the City and County of Denver, and Mark Davis himself, want the truth to prevail.  Certainly, this Denver Colorado man will need an experienced and aggressive criminal attorney, like those at Sawyer Legal Group.
