James Michael Budd, founder of the Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow, was formally charged with sexual assault and second-degree kidnapping Friday after investigators say he held a woman against her will inside her trailer and forced her to perform sex acts, according to an arrest affidavit.

Budd, 47, was also charged with third-degree assault and false imprisonment.

Budd was arrested Monday after a woman went to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office and told detectives he had sexually assaulted her.

The victim -- who said she knew Budd but was never in a relationship with him -- said he sent her an email and then came to her trailer in Boulder.

After they had dinner, the woman said, Budd tried to take off her shirt, and when she refused, he slapped her in the face, according to court records. He raised his hand again, so the woman complied and took off all her clothes, according to the affidavit.

The woman told investigators that Budd said, "Just (expletive) it," and pulled down his pants before saying he "needs to rape and kill (the victim), or he would have to rape and kill another woman," according to court records.

She said Budd then made her put on some underwear he picked out from her closet and then made her perform oral sex. He kept her in the trailer during the night, looked up pornography on her computer and talked to her "as if nothing had occurred," she told authorities.

The woman said Budd left the trailer the next morning. When investigators found him, Budd said he "went on a few dates" with the woman and was at her trailer Sunday night, but "really nothing sexual happened," according to the affidavit.

Budd, a former Bridge House employee who had been homeless for 25 years, founded BOHO in 2009 as an alternative shelter to the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. But Nancy Brinks, board chairwoman of BOHO, said Budd has not been involved with the program since 2010, and, according to the arrest warrant, Budd is again living on the streets.

Budd is being held at the Boulder County Jail on $100,000 bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Jan. 7.
