On Monday, March 28, 2005 at 1:10 p.m., detectives of the Colorado Springs Sex Crimes/Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Mr. Paul James Stewart Scott, a 53 year old male from Boulder, Colorado.
In February of 2005, Mr. Scott began communicating over the Internet with an undercover detective. He made arrangements with the undercover detective to have sex with two underage girls. After the sexual encounter, Mr. Scott wanted the girls to kill him. The sexual encounter was supposed to take place at an undisclosed location in the Colorado Springs area.
Mr. Scott was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Criminal Justice Center on the following charges: Solicitation for Child Prostitution, a class three felony, Criminal Attempt Sexual Assault on a Child, a class five felony, Enticement of a Child, a class four felony and Criminal Attempt Sexual Assault, a class two misdemeanor.
This arrest is part of the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and is the ninth arrest by members of the task force so far this year. The task force began in February 1999 and it’s funded by a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
