Civil Air Patrol Lieutenant Mitchell Thomas Bain, 20, was arrested and booked into the Boulder County Jail on two possible felony counts of sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.
Bain was a member of Civil Air Patrol’s Vance Brand Cadet Squadron in 2008, during the time the alleged assaults were reported. He used this position to encounter teenage girls, between the ages of 13 and 15.
Longmont Police Cmdr. Tim Lewis found that Bain “would use his position and his experience with the Civil Air Patrol to befriend them, manipulate them and take advantage of them sexually.
Lewis also revealed that Bain went so far as to meet with the parents of young girls, telling them stories about how he was going into the military and wanted to be a role model for their child.
“He presented himself as a mentor,” said Lewis.
