Former Fremont County foster parent faces sexual assault charges involving kids in his care

RIVERTON — A 66-year-old Lander man has been accused of sexually assaulting two children about seven years ago while he was their foster father.
Court papers say one child was 9 or 10 years old and the other 8 years old when they lived with the man from August 2007 to July 2008.
Identifying information about the children has been redacted from court documents, and identifying the man could identify the victims.
The Fremont County Attorney's Office has charged him with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The maximum penalty for each is 50 years in prison.

Circuit Court Judge Robert Denhardt has decided there is enough information to send the case to District Court for trial.
