Prosecutors from the Larimer County District Attorney’s office are expecting to send a plea offer to the Loveland man accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in 2019.
Andrew Koprowski, 36, was arrested on Oct. 1, 2021, for an incident that allegedly happened in September 2019. He appeared in court Thursday morning where his attorney, Derek Samuelson, asked to set the matter over as he awaits a plea offer from the DA’s office.
Deputy district attorney Erica Kasemodel said they have had a preliminary meeting with the victim and her family and believe they will be sending an offer out soon to Samuelson and Koprowski. She agreed with the setover to account for any back and forth the attorneys have following the offer being sent.
Judge Laurie Dean scheduled Koprowski to return to court at 9 a.m. Feb. 28.
Koprowski has been charged with sexual assault with the victim submitting by force, a class 3 felony; sexual assault by overcoming a victim’s will, a class 3 felony; second-degree kidnapping, a class 2 felony; contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a class 4 felony; and distribution of marijuana to a minor, a class 4 drug felony.
According to a previous release from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, in November 2019 a 16-year-old female student told a Fort Collins Police Services school resource officer she was the victim of a sexual assault that September. She said the assault occurred in the 400 block of North U.S. 287, which is in unincorporated Larimer County; because of this, the case was given to the Sheriff’s Office.
The release said the victim told investigators she met Koprowski through Snapchat and he agreed to sell her marijuana. When they met, she entered his car and he allegedly grabbed her arm to keep her inside, drove a short distance to a more secluded area and assaulted her, the release said.
