Mesa County, Colo. -- Larry Dean Church, 53, was arrested today following a 22 page warrant being issued for his arrest related to multiple sex assault charges. An adult victim reported a sex assault incident with Larry, as the suspect, in early December 2014. What the investigator found was seven additional victims of sex assault, ranging in age from 6-years-old to 21-years-old.

Twenty two of the 24 counts lodged against Larry are felonies, with two misdemeanor charges of unlawful sexual contact. Reports of sex assault or attempted sex assault should be made to 911, and anyone needing resources for child victims of sex assault should contact the Western Slope Center for Children

Larry will be formally advised of the charges and likely have a bond set tomorrow afternoon. For updated bond information on anyone currently in our Detention Facility, visit our Inmate Inquiry webpage.
