A Colorado Springs woman is under arrested tonight, facing charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, a class four felony.
Police say Amanda Santos is a staff member at the Nevada House, which is described on its website as a group home for juveniles who are in the custody of the El Paso County Department of Health Services. Its website says that it serves boys between the ages of fourteen to eighteen.
The male victim told police that Santos sexually assaulted him soon after his arrival at the center in December of last year. He says he didn't come forward immediately because he was afraid no one would believe him.
