Golden, Colorado -- A Catholic priest will be arraigned Oct. 19 on charges of sexually assaulting a teenage boy he was counseling.
A Jefferson County district judge ruled Monday that a grand jury indictment of 43-year-old Timothy Evans of Loveland showed sufficient probable cause to proceed with the case. Evans is accused of a fondling a 16-year-old between 1995 and 1997 while he was assigned to Spirit of Christ Parish in Arvada.
Evans is free on a $25,000 bond. The court issued a restraining order requiring Evans, who has been barred from performing any priestly duties, to have no contact with the alleged victim.
In Fort Collins last year, Evans was charged with sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, pattern of abuse and contributing to a delinquency of a minor while he was a pastor at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.
