As a condition of his bond, Cloud is to have no contact with the victim or any minors.

According to the criminal complaint:

Cloud was sitting with a 12-year-old on a couch at a Superior residence sometime in the fall of 2010. He said, "I know what you want," moved next to the child and put his hand inside her pants. He exposed himself and asked the girl to touch him, but she did not.

When questioned by Detective Joe Krieg with the Superior Police Department, Cloud said he did touch the girl and expose himself. He realized what he was doing was wrong, covered up and walked away, Cloud told Krieg.
