    Richard Koca - StandUp for Kids Founder Charged With Child Sex Assault

    The founder of a national charity for at-risk youth has been charged with repeatedly sexually assaulting a child over a three year period.

    Richard Koca, Sr., 69, was charged in Aurora, Colo., last week in connection with the child sexual assault case, according to ABC News station KMGH.

    Court documents state that Koca faces seven felony charges of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust that began in August 2009 and continued until August 2012. The document describes his behavior as a "pattern of abuse," according to KMGH.

    The charges against Koca were "suppressed," or sealed, by court order on Monday after KMGH's report. The Arapahoe County district attorney would not comment on the charges.

    Because of Koca's extensive work with minors through several non-profits that primarily serve children over the past several decades, police believe there could be other victims.

    Koca is a retired naval officer who spent 30 years in the U.S. Navy and was stationed in and visited various locations around the U.S. and world, including Panama, police said.

    It was reported to investigators that during his time in Panama, Koca was the Scout Master for a Boy Scouts of America program there. Koca was a volunteer at an orphanage in England that police have not been able to identify. Koca was also involved in Explorer scout programs in San Diego, police said.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Robert Friel in the Aurora Police Department's Crimes Against Children Unit, at 303-739-6185.

    Good Lord here we go again. A do gooder with access to children. Children in need. All over the world? Panama? Explorers, Boy Scouts, homeless children, runaways. There may be other victims? He's been involved with children for decades and he just recently assaults kids?

    As usual in hindsight the creep factor is raised.

    Last Friday, 71-year-old Koca was convicted on 22 counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. The trial was in Arapahoe County; Koca was arrested last September 15 on allegations that he'd repeatedly assaulted a boy under his supervision in Aurora, and that victim made a convincing witness at trial.

    Couldn't find an article about sentencing, but a Colorado DOC inmate search shows his first eligable date of parole being in 2100
