Former Colorado Police Officer, Curtis Arganbright Sentenced on Sexual Assault Charges
(STL.News) Curtis Arganbright, 43, a former Westminster Police Department (WPD) officer, was sentenced in federal court in Denver, Colorado, to 72 months in prison and three years supervised release. In addition to his prison sentence, Arganbright will forfeit his law enforcement certification and be required to register as a sex offender.
Arganbright previously pleaded guilty to one count of violating the civil rights of a woman whom he sexually assaulted.
“The Department of Justice will not tolerate law enforcement officers who use their authority to prey on vulnerable victims and sexually assault them,” said Deputy Assistant Attorney General Gregory B. Friel of the Civil Rights Division. “The Civil Rights Division will continue to vigorously prosecute these cases in an effort to secure justice for the victims of these reprehensible crimes and ensure that perpetrators who use their unique power to take advantage of others are held accountable.”
“Curtis Arganbright’s heinous conduct not only victimized a person in his care, it shattered the public’s trust given to him as a police officer,” said U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn for the District of Colorado.
