5th Judicial District Attorney’s office requested court records be sealed in Judge Thompson case

Summit Daily News: Fifth Judicial District Attorney Heidi McCollum confirmed Monday, Oct. 18, that her office filed a single charge of felony menacing against the district’s Chief Judge Mark Thompson on Saturday, Oct. 16.

McCollum said the alleged incident took place July 25 in Summit County, as first reported by The Denver Post. But details about the incident remain scarce.

The Summit Daily News was given an anonymous tip regarding an allegation against Thompson in August but was unable to independently verify there was any criminal case against him until the Colorado Judicial Branch made the news public Saturday. During that time, several records requests made to various agencies have been denied, including to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, which continues to investigate the allegation.
