DENVER — The hockey director of the Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association has been arrested and is facing charges of sexual assault and police are looking for information about any other crimes he may have committed.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO), Jesse Miles Davis, 45, was arrested Thursday and is facing charges of sexual assault.
Davis is also facing a charge of allowing and contributing to the illegal behavior of a minor, JCSO said.
According to an arrest affidavit, Davis brought a half-full bottle of cinnamon whiskey to two teenage girls who were staying in a tent in the backyard of his home in Idledale, northwest of Morrison, in June 2020.
He drank with the girls, the affidavit says, until the victim became sick and went outside the tent to vomit.
The affidavit says Davis touched the girl inappropriately while she was vomiting and attempted to have sex with her, then went back into the tent and made out with her until her friend remarked that he was too old to be kissing her and told him to stop.
The victim said she was extremely drunk at the time and did not give Davis permission to touch her, the affidavit says.
Colorado Select posted the following statement to their website in response to Davis' arrest:
