Eugene Gillespie had been a volunteer caregiver to people with disabilities since 1992, prosecutors said.

ARVADA, Colorado — A volunteer caretaker was sentenced Tuesday for sexually assaulting two people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, prosecutors in Jefferson County said.

Eugene Gillespie, 72, was given an indeterminate sentence of eight years to life in prison. He pleaded guilty in February to one count of sexual assault of an at-risk person. Other charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

“Gillespie had been employed as a volunteer caregiver to individuals with disabilities since 1992 and has interacted with this vulnerable community across the metro area in at least three different volunteer programs,” prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said as part of the plea agreement, Gillespie admitted to sexually assaulting one victim multiple times around 2013 while on overnight trips and day visits, and admitted to sexually assaulting a second victim multiple times from 2022-2023 in a program’s vehicles and inside their facility.

Arvada Police began their investigation into Gillespie in February 2023. He was arrested in April 2023.
