ASPEN ” An Aspen man was in the Garfield County jail on Friday on allegations he plied a minor with liquor and made a sexual advance toward the youth.

Dandy Vickery, 46, is accused of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and unlawful sexual contact, authorities said. He is to appear in Garfield County Court on Monday for an advisement hearing.

Vickery was being held on $15,000 bond at the jail. The contributing to a delinquency of a minor count is a class IV felony and is punishable by up to six years in state prison. The unlawful sexual contact count is a misdemeanor.

Aspen police Thursday arrested Vickery on a warrant issued out of Pitkin County. He was booked at Pitkin County jail before being transferred downvalley Friday.

Vickery has been arrested several times this month. He was also arrested Tuesday by Aspen police in the 400 block of East Durant Avenue for alleged unlawful consumption of alcohol in public. Vickery was taken into custody along with Landin Smith, 44, of Aspen, according to a police report.

The men were allegedly drinking from a bottle of vodka at Rubey Park. Smith was also arrested for unlawful consumption of alcohol in public.

That arrest was preceded by another incident on Feb. 9 at the fire pit on South Galena Street, authorities said. Aspen police issued a summons to Vickery for drinking liquor or possession of an open container on public property.

He was allegedly drinking with another man, identified as James Rewis, 52. Rewis was cited for the same offense.
