A Longmont man accused of sexually assaulting multiple children over four years was found guilty on all counts by a jury on Tuesday.
Douglas Kent Hartman, 60, was found guilty of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust with a pattern of abuse, sexual assault on a child under the age of 15, and enticement of a child following a weeklong trial in Boulder District Judge Judith Labuda’s courtoom in Boulder District Court.
“We thank the jury for their service and the victims for coming forward,” Boulder Deputy District Attorney Laura Kinde said Tuesday following the verdict. “We also thank the Longmont police department for their work on this case.”
Hartman, who is free on $50,000 bond, is now scheduled for a sentencing hearing on Aug. 23. The sex assault on a child counts are subject to Colorado’s indeterminate sentencing law for sex offenses, which means Hartman would have to complete treatment and apply for parole before being released from prison after any sentence served.
According to an arrest affidavit, Longmont police received the first report of sexual assault in September 2014 when a woman reported that her 6-year-old daughter said Hartman had sexually assaulted her multiple times by performing oral sex on her in his bathroom when he was baby-sitting her.
