Former youth volunteer pleads guilty to sex assault

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A former youth volunteer in our community pleads guilty to sexually assaulting four young boys.

Mark Bustamante pleaded guilty to two counts of sex assault on a child at his arraignment Thursday.

He faces anywhere from probation to life in prison when he is sentenced in February.

Bustamante was a volunteer with Mesa County Partners and a youth coach for the City of Grand Junction.

The assaults happened at Bustamante's home over a two year period. He was arrested earlier this year after one of the victims told his mom what was happening.
