Registered Sex Offender Running for City Council

A registered sex offender is running for city council in Aurora.

Abel Laeke, 39, is vying for one of two open at-large seats.

A charge from 2004 landed Laeke on the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s sex offender registry.

Laeke told CBS4’s Melissa Garcia on Saturday by phone that he could not comment on his criminal record due to pending litigation.

Court documents show that Laeke has been fighting to appeal the sex charge for years. (Read more from “Registered Sex Offender Running for City Council” HERE)
