Former Youth Pastor Accused Of Sex Assault

A former youth pastor has been arrested after being accused of sexually assaulting a member of a youth group at Mountain View Community Church.

The church is in Highlands Ranch near Denver.

Matt Capranelli,41, was arrested on Tuesday in Pueblo for eight felony charges.

Those charges include sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

Court documents show the alleged incidents happened back in 2004 to 2007, but the investigation began in June of this year.

Capranelli is scheduled to be in court next week.
