Fort Collins man accused of more than 20 sexual assault, child exploitation charges makes first court appearance – Loveland Reporter-Herald

Jediah Foster, the man arrested Nov. 12 on more than 20 sexual assault and child exploitation charges, will be back in court next year for his next hearing.

Fort Collins Police Services reported in a previous press release that, in late October, the department received information alleging that Foster, 35, had taken sexually explicit pictures of children and distributed them online. Investigators eventually learned of multiple situations involving inappropriate touching, police said in the release.

The previous release by FCPS said Foster worked in a role that involves “in-home service and repair,” though the release did not specify what his job was. Due to his access to customer homes, the release said, police are concerned about possible illegal and inappropriate activities that may have occurred.

Court records show Foster has been charged with six counts of sexual assault of a child from a position of trust, a class 3 felony; six additional sexual assault of a child charges, a class 3 felony; nine counts of sexual exploitation of a child, a class 3 felony; two counts of invasion of privacy for sexual gratification of a victim under the age of 15, a class 6 felony; and invasion of privacy for sexual gratification, a class 1 misdemeanor.

Foster was present on bond for his first appearance Tuesday morning before Eighth Judicial District Court Judge Sarah Cure. Terry O’Malley, Foster’s attorney, said due to the nature of the charges his client is eligible for a preliminary hearing but asked the case be set over before that hearing is scheduled.

Cure scheduled Foster to appear for his next hearing at 11 a.m. Jan. 4.
