Woodland Park Mayor Resigns Amid Assault Allegations

WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (AP) – Woodland Park’s mayor has resigned amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a 17-year-old boy in a hot tub at his home.

In a statement issued Monday, David Turley maintained his innocence and said he would fight the allegations in court.

The 65-year-old was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault on a child in May. Court documents in the case also say he repeatedly photographed the boy and kept the photos on a laptop at his home.

The Gazette reports that Turley’s resignation comes as some voters are pursue a recall petition against him.
