A former school bus driver for Widefield School District 3 is in jail facing three felony sex assault charges from a relationship he had a decade ago with a 12 year old boy.
Robert Henry Gordon, 48, was arrested Tuesday after admitting to detectives with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office that he watched pornography with the victim and later engaged in sexual acts with him.
In the arrested warrant, Gordon gave statements to Kathyn Otto that he had sex with both victim and another boy in his home at various times in 2002.
The victim was first interviewed by Otto last August. Gordon faces charges of Sexual Assault on a Child, Sexual Assault on a Child/Position of Trust and Sexual Assault on a Child/Pattern of Abuse. Judge Jonathan Walker approved a request by the sheriff's office to increase Gordon's bond to $250,000.
Gordon worked as a bus driver for the school district off and on for 5 years dating back to 2005. He has since been placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of his court case.
