HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The brother of a former Madison County soldier who pleaded guilty to sex crimes in Colorado is now facing sexual-related charges himself.

Brian Lucas was arrested Sunday by Huntsville police. Lucas was charged with two counts of sodomy and two counts of sexual abuse. He is free on bond.

Police aren't commenting because it's an ongoing investigation.

Brian's twin brother Aaron Lucas pleaded guilty last year to kidnapping and four counts of sexual assault of a child in Colorado.

Investigators said his DNA also connected him to sex crimes in Madison and Texas. But Madison County prosecutors said that because of the Colorado plea deal, they will not pursue the Madison case.

Aaron originally blamed Brian for the crimes.
