Christopher Robin Adams-Wenger was sentenced in early August to 10 years to life of Sex Offender Intensive Supervision Probation and two years of work release. He was sentenced by Judge Marcelo Kopcow.
Adams-Wenger pleaded guilty in May to sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, a Class 4 felony punishable by up to 6 years in prison. The Weld District Attorney’s Office argued for prison time in the case, according to a spokeswoman.
The investigation into Adams-Wenger was launched after a Union Colony student reported to a school counselor rumors about Adams-Wenger being sexually involved with a fellow classmate. Police found Adams-Wenger and the student who he was accused of sexually assaulting had exchanged at least 41,000 text messages. Court records indicated some of the texts were sexually explicit.
In an interview with police, the student said she and Adams-Wenger had a typical teacher-student relationship until a class trip during the 2018-19 school year. Details of the trip were redacted from the record, but the student said Adams-Wenger admitted having feelings for her after the trip.
Adams-Wenger then told police they had been sexually intimate since April 2019, according to court records. He said they weren’t ashamed of their “relationship” and often went on dates in the community. He was arrested the following day.
According to the Colorado Legal Defense Group, conditions of intensive supervision probation include:
- An approved sex offender evaluation and treatment program;
- No use of drugs or alcohol;
- No contact with children;
- No dating or marriage of anyone with children under 18 unless approved by the state;
- No possession of porn.
Adams-Wenger’s address is listed at 1390 N. 17th Ave., the Work Release facility, according to the Sexual Offender Tracking And Registration system. He owns a black 2015 Mazda CX-9.
