Founder of Aurora nonprofit suspected of sex crime

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - The founder of nonprofit to help at-risk homeless youth has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault by a person in position of trust.

Aurora police Tuesday say officers arrested Stand Up For Kids founder Richard Lee Koca (KOH-cha) on Saturday. Police say they began investigating Koca on Aug. 29 and have so far identified one victim in Aurora. Because of his contact with children through his nonprofit that started in 1990, police fear there may be more victims.

Police say Koca, a retired Navy officer, has lived in Atlanta, Houston and San Diego. Details of the allegation were not immediately released. Koca remained in custody on $250,000 bail.

There is no phone listing for Koca and it's unclear whether he has an attorney.
