Attorney faces contempt hearing for releasing body cam video

FOX31: The decision by attorney Sarah Schielke to release body camera video from two Idaho Springs police officers on Thursday morning, could leave her facing a contempt charge.

In a brief hearing Thursday morning, Clear Creek County Judge Cynthia Jones set a contempt hearing for Aug. 12 in her Georgetown courtroom.

Jones seemed clearly annoyed that Schielke sent out a press release with links to the body cam video, plus a nine-minute edited version created by Schielke to show a condensed version of the events that led to her client Michael Clark being shocked with a stun gun.
