A Superior man accused of sexually assaulting two children younger than 13 made an initial appearance in Douglas County Circuit Court last week.
Jonathan Allen Launderville, 26, faces six counts felony first-degree child sexual assault-contact with a child under the age of 13 and two counts of felony intimidation of a victim.
According to the criminal complaint:
An 8-year-old boy told Superior Police Detective Joe Krieg that Launderville touched him three different times on his private parts at a Superior residence. The touching took place over his shorts.
Another boy, age 11, told Krieg that Launderville stuck his hands in the victim's pants and touched his private parts at least three different times.
The younger boy said Launderville told him not to tell anyone about the incidents or he would beat up the child's father.
The other child said Launderville threatened to "come after him" if he told anyone about the touching.
Cash bail was set at $10,000 in the case with conditions that Launderville have no contact with the victims, no contact with another specific child and no unsupervised contact with other juveniles. As of Tuesday afternoon, he was in custody at the Douglas County Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for today.
If convicted, the maximum sentence for each child sex assault count is 60 years imprisonment. Each intimidation count carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $25,000.
