Gary Postell, 50, of Castle Rock, faces two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in position of trust, a Class 3 felony, and sexual assault with a 10-year age difference, a Class 1 misdemeanor. The presumptive sentencing range for a Class 3 felony is four to 16 years in prison.
A trial date has not been set. Postell’s next court appearance will be a case-management conference on Oct. 16.
On Nov. 29, 2016, Postell was arrested after detectives received a report of the assault and interviewed the suspected victim on Nov. 28, finding enough evidence to press charges.
Postell was hired by the district in 2014. After the arrest, he was placed on paid administrative leave. On Aug. 8, a Douglas County School District spokeswoman confirmed he is no longer employed by the district.
