(Denver Post) – Child sex assault charges leveled in Colorado last year against the brother of Rachel Dolezal,  the embattled former Spokane, Wash., NAACP chapter president, appear entwined in her infamous — and now global — story.

Dolezal began grabbing headlines last week when her parents told reporters she is actually a white woman who for years has pretended to be black. Legal matters in Colorado have surfaced as a focal point in the family drama at the center of the controversy.

A source close to the sex assault case said Monday that 39-year-old Joshua Dolezal, awaiting trial in Clear Creek County on four counts of child sex assault by one in a position of trust, is her brother.

The Daily News in New York City, which broke news of the Colorado connection, on Sunday reported Rachel Dolezal has been supporting her brother’s alleged victim. In an interview last week with  The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Rachel Dolezal said she was suspicious of her parents’ timing in discussing her ancestry since it came as her brother faces a “key juncture” in a Colorado legal case.
