Man suspected of dog abuse; prosecutor shocked
Thursday, September 04, 2008
Allegations that a former Grand Junction man had sex with a dog while
forcing a 7-year-old boy to watch has astounded even the county's top
"I've never seen anything like this," Pete Hautzinger, Mesa County's
District Attorney, said after the defendant's first court hearing Thursday.
Jason Lee McRoberts, 30, posted a $1,000 cash bond from the Mesa County Jail
on Thursday on a low-level felony charge of obscenity for alleged sexual
incidents that occurred at his Grand Junction home between December 2007 and
McRoberts, who now lives in Castle Rock and also was wanted on a Grand
Junction Police Department warrant for indecent exposure, turned himself in
for the obscenity charge.
Local authorities learned of the allegations from the boy's mother, who
lives in Texas. In an interview with Texas investigators, the boy said while
he lived in Grand Junction he was made to watch McRoberts have sex with a
dog, according to an arrest affidavit for McRoberts.
Hautzinger said it's unclear whether McRoberts will face any child abuse
McRoberts appears next in court Sept. 11.
