Glenwood Springs, Colo. (AP) A Garfield county man is free on bond after his arrest on a half-dozen sex crime charges – charges he faces in addition to some 24 other counts against him.
Authorities arrested 58-year-old Frank Alameno on Friday. He's accused of sexual assault on a child under the age of 15 by a person in a position of trust; two counts of sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse; and two counts of unlawful sexual conduct.
He posted a $50,000 bond shortly after a court hearing Friday.
Two girls -- ages ten and 13 -- claim Alameno touched them inappropriately while they were riding all-terrain vehicles on his property last summer.
Defense attorney Lawson Wills says Alameno could face life in prison if convicted of the charges against him.
The other charges include about 20 counts related to child pornography, plus four drug charges.
