THORNTON, Colo. – A former coach of a Broomfield youth softball team was charged Friday with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl who was a former player of his.

Jason Lee Davis, 43, faces one count of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust—a class 4 felony.

Dave Young, the district attorney for the 17th Judicial District, says the assault happened April 2 at the Margaret Carpenter Recreation Center.

A news release from the district attorney’s office says Davis previously coached the Broomfield Thunder softball team, and that the girl he’s accused of assaulting was a player on the team.

It’s unclear if the alleged assault happened while Davis was still the girl’s coach, or when he stopped coaching the team.

Davis was advised of his charges in Adams County Court on Friday, and faces an Aug. 25 preliminary hearing on the charge.

The district attorney’s office asks anyone with more information regarding Davis or the incident is asked to call Thornton police at 720-977-5069. A mugshot for Davis was not immediately available.
