GJ man already in prison accused of prior sex assaults

A 35-year-old Grand Junction man already in prison serving a nine-year prison sentence was arrested on suspicion of multiple counts of sex assault on a child for alleged incidents in 2006 and 2007.

Shawn Troy Kontour is accused of sexually touching a child in a Grand Junction park and at his home, according to an arrest affidavit.

Kontour allegedly exposed himself to others in public places, the affidavit said. He faces three counts of sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, criminal attempt to commit sexual assault and two counts of indecent exposure for incidents between May 1, 2006, and June 1, 2007, the affidavit said.

Kontour declined an interview by investigators about the allegations when he was contacted in prison.
