A storm system is moving into Southern Colorado. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to wet snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, as temps will be coldest here. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning. Updated snowfall forecast graphics can be found by clicking the Breaking Weather Alert tab to the left.
Two lawmakers are drawing up bills designed to extend or eliminate the statute of limitations in child sexual assault cases.
Golden Democratic Senator Joan Fitz-Gerald plans to introduce a bill that would give adults who were victimized as minors more time to file civil lawsuits.
And Denver Democratic Representative Rosemary Marshall is drafting a bill to eliminate the statute of limitations for criminal charges involving sex crimes against children.
Both lawmakers say they're motivated by a clergy sexual-abuse scandal that has plagued U.S. Roman Catholic dioceses since 2002.
The bills are expected to be filed next year.
Five men have filed lawsuits against the Archdiocese of Denver alleging they were molested by former priest Harold Robert White.
The lawsuits allege the archdiocese was aware of the allegations against White, but only transferred him to other parishes.
White has called the allegations contain "half-truths."
