A man who was was tasked with overseeing the education of children faces a judge Tuesday after he was accused of attempted sex assault on a child and luring kids over the internet.

Robert Vashaw, 50, was arrested last month following an Internet investigation.

He is on the Adams County District 14 school board. Authorities say no children from that district were involved.

The school board told 9NEWS in a statement that it is aware of the allegations, but could not offer additional details.

Vashaw will be in court from a preliminary hearing.
