Colorado Symphony Member Sentenced In Sex Assaults

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) – A Colorado Symphony violinist has been sentenced to 10 years to life on sex-offense intensive supervision probation.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that David Waldman was sentenced after pleading guilty last week to sexual assault on a child and attempted sexual assault on a child. The charges stemmed from sleepovers with children staying with Waldman’s daughter.

Prosecutors say a 13-year-old girl who spent the night in September told her father Waldman entered the room where she was sleeping and touched her inappropriately. In November, parents of another girl told Aurora police their daughter said Waldman tried to touch her during a sleepover in 2010, when she was 12.

Colorado Symphony CEO Gene Sobczak says Waldman is on unpaid administrative leave, and a decision on his future is coming “shortly.”
