A Greeley man was arrested after he allegedly provided alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana to two juveniles in Fort Collins with the expectation of sexual favors in return. Scot Stockwell, 49, was arrested April 28 and has since been formally charged with five felonies: two counts of coercing sexual contact from a child, sexual exploitation of a child and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Court records show Stockwell allegedly communicated with two teenage boys over Facebook and agreed to bring them alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana if they would agree to flash him when he arrived.
Stockwell, who works for the accounting department at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, reportedly inappropriately touched the boys without their consent and asked for more sexual contact when he delivered the alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana to them in Fort Collins, according to his arrest affidavit. He also reportedly stored photographs of the boys on his phone. He allegedly wrote letters to both boys, in which he detailed his hopes that they could spend a night at his house and professed his love.
When one of the boys called Stockwell a call that was recorded by Fort Collins police detectives he reportedly admitted to storing images on his phone and said that he felt “guilty” about taking advantage of the boy. He reportedly said that he likes to push the envelope and see what happens. A university spokesman confirmed Monday that Stockwell is using vacation days to be on leave from his job.
He also ran for Greeley City Council in 2009, according to a report by the Greeley Tribune. At the time, he was working as a security guard at Greeley Central High School, according to the report. Fort Collins Police Services said the investigation is ongoing in a news release Tuesday. Anyone who might have been victimized by Stockwell is encouraged to contact Fort Collins police detective Dan Calahan at 970-416-2051 or [email protected]
“Victims may have concerns about consequences for underage drinking or drug use; however, the focus of this case is on investigating sexual abuse and seeking justice for victims,” the news release said. Stockwell remains in custody in the Larimer County Jail on a $40,000 bond. He’s next due in court May 25.
