A man accused of sexually assaulting two girls once managed cookie sales for a Girl Scout troop.

The Girl Scouts Wagon Wheel council says Bruce Sams managed cookies sales for a Colorado Springs troop in 1997.

Sams filled out an application and provided three references but a criminal background check was never done.

A 17-year old girl, who was a member of Sams' troop claims he sexually assaulted her three times in 1996 or 1997.

In December, Sams was arrested after an 11year old runaway claimed he picked her up, took her to a Colorado Springs hotel and forced her to have sex with him while three women videotaped it.

Sams is being held on $260,000 bond.
