Audio programs featuring a Focus on the Family radio producer -- arrested Friday on charges he arranged to meet a teenage girl for sex in an Internet chat room -- disappeared from the evangelical Christian media empire's Web site Monday afternoon after news of the man's arrest broke.
"Do you like older guys?" a 42-year-old Colorado Springs man who listed his employer as evangelical ministry Focus on the Family asked 11 minutes after initiating contact in an Internet chat room with a girl he believed to be younger than 15, according to an arrest affidavit released Monday by the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. Turns out the "teenager" was really an investigator with the district attorney's office, as Juan Alberto Ovalle discovered the next afternoon when he was arrested on two felony counts in Lakewood after arranging to meet the girl for sex, according to the affidavit.
