Herbert Lucas Scott, the suspect in the Aug. 20 Pony Patch at Doolittle Ranch obscenity case in Chaffee County, is facing additional charges in a new case. Scott turned himself in to the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office today, Thursday, Feb. 11.
A warrant for Scott was issued for Wrongs to At-Risk Adults – Felony 2, Sexual Assault—Felony 3 and Unlawful Sexual Contact—Felony 4. This case is unrelated to the allegations made at the Pony Patch at Doolittle Ranch, reported on in Jan. 22 by Ark Valley Voice . The latest victim is a 22-year-old at-risk adult and is known to the suspect outside of the camp.
Scott (DOB: 10/27/99), is being held without bond at this time. He is scheduled for advisement at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 11.
Related to the Pony Patch at Doolittle Ranch investigation, Scott faces three counts of obscenity, nine (9) counts of Sexual Assault on a Child by one in Position of Trust (Felony 3), and one charge of Sex Assault on a Child.
The charges stem from a comprehensive investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office and the 11th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. The victims’ ages range from 9 to 18-years-old. All but the recent victim were clients or visitors at the ranch.
CBI agents continue to ask families to speak with their children who may have been in contact with Scott at the camp or other locations, and to call a designated tip line through Chaffee County Crime Stoppers to report any inappropriate behavior that may have occurred. (719-539-5299).
Because of the nature of the investigation and juvenile involvement, very few details are available at this time.
