COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Court documents allege that Woodland Park Mayor David Turley inappropriately touched a 17-year-old boy in a hot tub at his home.

The 65-year-old was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault on a child last month. The documents released Monday provide the first details of the accusations against him.

The father of another boy and an assistant principal became concerned about the ties between Turley and the teen and asked investigators to look into it.

KMGH-TV reports that the boy denied being molested and said Turley was a friend and father figure. Later, he told social workers that Turley had accidentally touched his genitals, leading police to record a phone call between the two.

Turley has maintained his innocence. He referred questions to his lawyer, who couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
