Bond set for soldier accused of molesting kids in three states


A judge in Colorado set bond for a Madison County soldier accused of molesting children in three states.

Aaron Gregory Lucas was arrested in October in El Paso County, Colorado. Investigators say he has more than a dozen victims in Colorado.

DNA from the case in Colorado matched an open case in Madison and an open case in Texarkana, Texas.

Investigators say Lucas sexually assaulted a 6-year-old in Madison in 2007. Texas authorities say he kidnapped and sexually assaulted a child in 2009.

The judge in Colorado revoked bond when the court was alerted to the Madison case.

Lucas waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday. However, the judge set bond at $500,000 during the hearing.

Lucas will face the charges in Colorado before he returns to Alabama.
