Rural Colorado superintendent acquitted of 6 of 7 sex assault charges
DENVER (AP) — A rural Colorado school superintendent has been acquitted of six of the seven child sexual assault charges against him.
The Denver Post reported Monday that the jury could not reach a decision on the seventh charge against Kenneth Cody Weber, leading the judge to declare a mistrial. That seventh charge is sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust with a pattern of abuse.
The Karval School District in December 2016 told parents in the district that Weber had been placed on administrative leave.
A status conference has been scheduled for May 16.
Karval is located 75 miles east of Colorado Springs.
