40-year-old Fremont County resident facing sexual abuse of a minor charges
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Travison Hurtado, 40, of Fremont County, faces four counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the third degree. Hurtado had his preliminary hearing on January 7th, 2020, where sufficient probable cause was found. The case has been transferred to District Court for arraignment.
Sexual abuse of a minor in the third degree is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
The charges come after Hurtado, a Wind River Job Corps instructor, allegedly had sexual relations with a Wind River Job Corps student who at the time of the incident was 16-years-old.

According to court documents, the two began messaging each other and “flirted” sometime after November 15th, 2019. “Images of some of these conversations were reviewed by law enforcement, and they appear sexually explicit in nature.”
On either November 22nd or 23rd, Hurtado allegedly picked-up the minor “near the water tower near the CWC dorms.” During this time they drove around talking and then engaged in sexual intercourse.
After the first sexual encounter in the vehicle, Hurtado allegedly told the minor he thought she was 19. After she revealed her age as 16, he became upset and “told her she could not tell anyone or he could land in jail.” They reportedly had multiple sexual encounters during this time.
