GERING — A Colorado resident is accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl when she was an art student of his.
Scotts Bluff County Court records say 45-year-old Steven J. Barraza, of Englewood, Colorado, is charged with sexual assault of a child. Records showed Friday that he remained in Scotts Bluff County Adult Detention Center, pending $150,000 bail. Barraza was arrested Jan. 30 in Colorado.
The court records say the girl reported that they had sex twice in 2014, once at Barraza's Gering home, where he gave art lessons, and once at a motel.
