Gregory Trout, 60, is accused of seven counts of sexual assault on a child, among other charges and received a $50,000 cash-only bond from the Mesa County Court on Thursday.

According to the arrest affidavit, family members accused Trout of a "pattern of abuse" dating back decades, which ranged from inappropriate comments to sexual assault.

Twenty First Judicial District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said he considered Trout a significant public safety risk and asked for a high cash bond on Thursday. Judge Craig Henderson said Trout was convicted on similar allegations in 1987 and with these allegations, some dating back decades, Henderson was concerned whether Trout ever exhibited lawful behavior.

The charges are stemming from alleged incidents with three separate child victims that allegedly occurred between 1988 to 2019, according to a Mesa County Sheriff's Office press release.
