Sex assault case against former teacher advances

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A sexual assault case against a former western Colorado middle school teacher will proceed after numerous delays.

John Holland Brothers Jr. faces 16 felonies after being accused of sexually assaulting a boy. Brothers Jr. has been in custody since he was arrested in Louisiana in April 2012

After a three-hour hearing Friday, Routt County Judge James Garrecht ruled that the case should proceed to district court, where felony cases are heard.

Brothers taught at Heritage Christian School west of Steamboat Springs between 2006 and 2008. He was taught junior high and high school science, high school math and Bible class.

In addition to the Routt County case, Brothers faces two counts of first-degree sexual abuse in Kentucky.
