A Colorado Springs philanthropist could learn Thursday whether he will go to trial for allegedly sexually abusing children.
William Whiting, 59, is accused of sexually abusing at least three children multiple times over a three-year period. On the day of Whiting's arrest last month, detectives said there could be more victims.
An arrest affidavit obtained by 11 News says that Whiting admitted to the allegations.
Whiting is a member of the Springs branch of the Colorado Odd Fellows, a community service-oriented group involved in several charities and humanitarian efforts according to their website. Whiting is also a business owner in Colorado Springs.
His wife told 11 News last month that she was shocked by the accusations and her husband's arrest.
Whiting remains in custody at the CJC on a $200,000 bond.
