EL PASO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE MAKES ARREST IN SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE
In February 2013, the Sheriff’s Office began a sexual assault investigation involving an employee of Falcon School District 49. The incident occurred in November 2012 where the adult female suspect was alleged to have provided alcohol to minors and had illegal sexual contact with a 17 year old male while at a party. Due to a lack of leads at the time, the case was inactivated.
The investigation was resumed when new information on the case was received on August 16, 2013 through SAFE2TELL. The new information has led to the arrest of 34 year old Tonya Harris who is employed as a food service worker in District 49. She has been arrested and booked into the Criminal Justice Center on $3000 bond for Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust (Felony 4) and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor (Felony 4).
