On Aug. 8th, 2023, Jefferson County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to Genessee Mountain Park in response to an indecent exposure report involving a male and two female hikers. After a lengthy search and brief pursuit, the male, later identified as Braden, was arrested and held on several misdemeanor counts. When Braden was advised on Aug. 10th, prosecutors requested a $100,000 cash only bond, which was granted.
Once our office reviewed the case, prosecutors requested an updated affidavit with the inclusion of felony charges. On August 11th, Braden again appeared in court and was advised of the new felony counts. His bond was unchanged, set at $100,000 cash only. The case number for the new felony case is 23CR1966. The original misdemeanor case, 23M4040, will be dismissed by prosecutors.
Braden’s next appearance is Aug. 17th at 10 am for the return filing of charges.
The charges are merely legal allegations, and Mr. Braden is presumed innocent of the charges against him unless and until he is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
