Former Kanakuk Kamp director Pete Newman, already charged with felony sex crimes involving underage boys, may be charged with similar crimes in other states.
The Durango Colorado Herald, reporting on Newman's arrest on La Plata County charges, revealed that information:
He is suspected of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust in La Plata County. He faces numerous charges in Missouri for allegedly sexually assaulting boys, and other states are considering similar charges.
Newman was employed as a director with Kanakuk Kamps for about 10 years. The incident in La Plata County occurred in September 2008 at Kanakuk's K-Colorado campus near Vallecito. The local children's camp is now under new name and ownership.
Kanakuk Kamps hosts a variety of Christian summer camps for boys and girls between ages 7 and 18.
The Sheriff's Office declined to say whether the alleged victim in Colorado is a local resident. The agency is trying to determine whether there are more victims, said Investigator Sam Eggleston.
