CASCADE, Idaho — The Valley County Prosecutor’s Office late Tuesday released the Criminal Complaint against Brad Larsen, the former Tamarack resort general manager, who now faces seven misdemeanor sexual battery charges.

According to the document, the inappropriate touching took place “on or about the 26th day of January, 2020” in which Larsen is accused of “willfully touch(ing) the intimate parts” of victims… without (their) consent and with the intent of arousing, appealing, or gratifying the lust, passion or sexual desires of the actor or any other person.”

The victims are identified as five females and two males. Larsen is accused of inappropriately touching the victims’ breasts, buttocks, and pectoral muscles, according to the complaint.

One female victim was 14, another was 17. The ages of the other victims were not available.

Larsen had served as Tamarack’s general manager since 2015. Late Monday, Tamarack President Jon Reveal released a statement saying, “Brad Larsen resigned and is not employed at Tamarack Resort. We were recently made aware of the Valley County prosecutor filing charges and will cooperate with any investigation.

“While we are unable to speak to specific personnel matters, we can assure the community that we take seriously any conduct that impacts the safety, security and well-being of our employees and guests. The behavior alleged in these charges is unacceptable. We work to ensure a safe and respectful environment for all who work at and visit the resort.

Each count carries a maximum charge of one year in jail.
