CRESCENT CITY – On February 12 43-year-old Travis Leland Springer was arrested and face what were called “a string of sex charges against a minor.”
At first the charges included unlawful intercourse with a minor, aggravated sexual assault of a minor, aggravated sexual assault of a minor with a foreign object, lewd crimes against children, continuous sexual abuse of a child, and annoying or molesting a child.
However, his charges have all been contained into one – continuous sexual abuse.
Del Norte District Attorney Katherine Micks said, “In this case, the decision was made based on the facts and circumstances, so it was decided that it would be more appropriate.”
Springer’s bail, first set at $1 million, was reduced to $250,000.
