West 32nd and North Federal, near the bus stop where the third victim met the suspect.
Case number three took place on September 28, 2011. The arrest report quotes the 49-year-old victim as saying that she was waiting for a bus at West 32nd Avenue and North Federal Boulevard when a blue Mercedes pulled up with the passenger window down. The man inside told the woman he was a police officer; when he ordered her into the car, she reluctantly complied. They then drove to an area near West 45th Avenue and North Irving Street, where the suspect -- a bald white male of medium build wearing a baseball cap, a blue shirt and blue jeans -- exposed his penis and told her she either needed to have sex with him or she'd be going to jail.

The woman said she'd prefer the latter, but she wasn't given the choice. The affidavit notes that the man grabbed her by the back of the head and tried to force her to orally service him. She responded by fighting him off as best she could, but he overpowered her, held her down, licked her breasts, neck and lips and digitally penetrated her anus. At that point, she told him she'd provide him with oral sex, but when he climbed back into the driver's seat, she jumped out of the car, ran to a nearby home with a porch light and began asking for those inside to call the police. At that point, the suspect drove away.

Again, a rape kit was used, and again, male DNA was found on a swab that matched with Costello's.

The result of these discoveries? Costello has been charged with two counts of second-degree kidnapping, two counts of sexual assault on a child, three counts of sexual assault and two counts of impersonating a peace officer. He's being held on $200,000 and is scheduled to make his first court appearance at 9:30 a.m. today.

This is a PRIME example of how Colorado, pampers it's sex offenders.

Those convicted of drug offenses receive and serve far greater sentences 

than those guilty of RAPING our women & children !

Wonder if Sullivan and Costello will be co-hosting a Holiday extravaganza this season ???

If so, I'm sure the judge who lowered his bond will be in attendance ....

A 25% reduction in a bond does not a conspiracy make.
