In addition to other responsibilities, investigators assigned to the Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab are tasked with investigating child sexual exploitation cases and high technology crimes, plus digital forensics expertise and analysis on a wide range of cases.

Rennells-Rosa was booked into the Boulder County Jail on an arrest warrant with no bond for one count of §18-6-403(3)(b), Sexual exploitation of a child-distribution, a Class 3 Felony, and three counts of §18-6-403(3)(b.5), Sexual exploitation of a child-possession, Class 4 Felonies.
