PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. — A Pueblo County man is being held on a $100,000 bond after being charged with sexually assaulting a child. The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office says detectives arrested 47-year-old Lonnie Martin Thursday morning.

Martin is also facing a charge of child sex assault as one in a position of trust and allegedly contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the sheriff's office.

At this time, it is unclear what line of work Martin held that put him in that position of trust.
