Avery has been convicted of sexual assault on a child and sexual assault in Mesa County and attempted sexual assault in Garfield County. According to the bulletin, Avery would engage in grooming behavior with teenage girls by providing alcohol to them and then assault them.
The public can watch an educational video about sexually violent predators by either going to the Police Department link on the city’s website, http://www.gjcity.org, or by tuning into Mesa County Cable Channel 12 at noon, 4 p.m. or 7 p.m. today or at 7 a.m., noon, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday.
