Suspended Officer faces 78 counts

A suspended Colorado Springs Police Officer will face 78 charges related to sexual assault on children.  Joshua Carrier was arrested earlier this month on child pornography charges and later charges with sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say there are at least six alleged victims and that number could go as high as 15.  Carrier was a School Resource Officer at Mann Middle School in School District 11.  Carrier is on suspension without pay and remains in jail on $500,000 bail.

In court this morning Carrier's attorney requested Carrier's bond be reduced.  A victim's rights attorney requested that parents of alleged victims be allowed to be present in court before a decision is made on bond.

The bond hearing will happen next week.  Carrier's preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 28.
