A Fort Collins man has been arrested on numerous charges related to sexual assault and child exploitation.

In late October 2021, FCPS received information that Jediah Foster, 35, had taken sexually explicit pictures of children and distributed them online. Through further investigation, they also learned about multiple situations involving inappropriate touching. Foster faces the following charges:

  • C.R.S.18-3-405.3(2)(b) – Sex Assault on a Child, Position of Trust, Pattern of Abuse – 6 counts (Class 3 Felony)
  • C.R.S. 18-6-302(1)(a) – Aggravated Incest – 6 counts (Class 3 Felony)
  • C.R.S. 18-6-403(3)(a) – Sexual Exploitation of a Child – 3 counts (Class 3 Felony)
  • C.R.S.18-6-403(3)(b) – Sexual Exploitation of a Child – 3 counts (Class 3 Felony)
  • C.R.S.18-6-403(3)(c) – Sexual Exploitation of a Child – 3 counts (Class 3 Felony)
  • C.R.S. 18-6-403(3)(b.5) – Sexual Exploitation of a Child (Class 5 Felony)

He was booked into the Larimer County Jail on November 12. A booking photo is attached courtesy of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

Foster works in a role that involves in-home service and repair. Due to his access to customer homes, police are concerned about possible illegal and inappropriate activities that may have occurred.

“Heinous crimes like this leave a lasting impact on individuals, their families and the community, and the detrimental effect cannot be understated,” said Assistant Chief Tim Doran. “We will continue to provide support for victims and seek justice to the fullest extent possible in this case.”

Anyone with information about this or other incidents involving Foster should contact Detective Dollie Knab at 970-416-2195. People who wish to remain anonymous may contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.

All charges are simply an accusation by law enforcement officers, and all parties must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
