COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A judge rules there is enough evidence for a Fort Carson soldier to go to trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a child.

Authorities say Aaron Lucas sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl in June of 2012 after allegedly kidnapping her in the Stratmoor Valley area, near Security.

Lucas is also facing charges in a series of sex offenses allegedly committed between 2010 and 2012 in Fountain, Colorado Springs, and unincorporated El Paso County in addition to Madison, Ala, where he is charged with sexual abuse of a child under 12 and enticing a child for immoral purposes.

In the alleged kidnapping case, prosecutors say the little girl was gone for about 45 minutes before being returned.

According to detectives, the alleged victim and witness in the case positively identified Lucas as the kidnapper.

In court on Friday, a detective told a judge that Lucas’ DNA was found on the young girl’s pants and on her privates, indicating she was sexually assaulted.

However, the defense argues that the little girl never told detectives she had been sexually assaulted during the alleged abduction. In fact, when detectives asked her if she been touched sexually, she told them no.

The judge also heard testimony Friday about the possibility that someone else committed the crimes that Lucas is accused of perpetrating. Detectives told the judge that Lucas does have a twin brother that lives in Alabama. Detectives said they checked into him, but ruled him out as a suspect.

The defense also argued that the suspect lineups that the alleged victims and witnesses were shown in these cases are biased and should be tossed out. The judge denied the motion.

    Accused pedophiles like Lucas, Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. (and their enablers) must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky and Lucas are now safely behind bars. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, who, as an English teacher, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland, is now a fugitive from the law. Perpetrators condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure, they and their enablers must be stopped ASAP!
