War­rant: Of­fi­cial gave al­co­hol to teen

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - By Jesse Paul

A su­per­in­ten­dent for the Kar­val School Dis­trict sex­u­ally as­saulted two ju­ve­niles over sev­eral years while he was work­ing as a teacher in Li­mon, and he hired one of them to babysit his chil­dren while he and his wife went to Bron­cos games, ac­cord­ing to ar­rest doc­u­ments.

An ar­rest war­rant for 36year-old Cody Ken­neth Weber says he also pro­vided al­co­hol to at least one of his al­leged vic­tims, and told one that if any­one ever found out about their re­la­tion­ship, “he would prob­a­bly kill him­self.”

The 26-page, heav­ily redacted war­rant was filed Nov. 29. Weber was sub­se­quently taken into cus­tody and then re­leased from the Lin­coln County jail af­ter post­ing $100,000 bail.

Court records show he faces seven felony counts, all of them sex­ual as­sault on a child by a per­son in po­si­tion of trust.

The al­leged sex­ual as­saults hap­pened while Weber was an agri­cul­ture ed­u­ca­tion teacher at the Li­mon School Dis­trict. Dave Marx, the dis­trict’s su­per­in­ten­dent, says Weber worked at the school sys­tem from Au­gust 2007 un­til June 30.

Marx said there were never com­plaints about Weber while he was work­ing at Li­mon.

One of Weber’s al­leged vic­tims told an of­fi­cer she had had in­ter­course with Weber be­tween five and 15 times, the war­rant says.

The vic­tims told in­ves­ti­ga­tors the sex­ual as­saults ceased, re­spec­tively, in early 2015 and 2011.
