A public censure approved by the Colorado Presiding Disciplinary Judge was imposed as agreed-upon discipline of a Denver City Attorney who had spoken to a police officer who had pulled her fiancee over for speeding shortly after the incident. The summary indicates that the disciplined attorney "spoke to [the police] officer without adequate reflection or concern about her position as a public official, and without adequate care for the effect talking to the officer would have on the administration of justice"
A news report indicating that the attorney has resigned and the police officer disciplined is linked here. An earlier news report indicating that the attorney had been reprimanded for misusing her position when confronted by an animal control officer is linked here. (Mike Frisch)
