Republican former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters fired her attorneys again today and been granted another delay in her criminal trial as a result. He trial was scheduled to start this Friday, 2/9/24.
The Colorado Sun reports that Judge Matthew Barrett has now set Tina’s criminal trial for July 29 through Aug. 12, 2024. This is the fifth time Tina has switched lawyers since 2022, when a grand jury indicted her on a 13 count mix of felonies and misdemeanors related to election tampering.
Tina has become a full time election denier who is making a living by soliciting donations from her followers, to whom she regularly promotes lies and conspiracy theories about election integrity. She now appears to be applying a strategy of repeatedly firing her attorneys as her trial dates get closer in order to indefinitely postpone her criminal trial. So far, the Court has allowed her to use this strategy and it appears to be working.
WesternSlopeNow.com (KREX-TV’s website) says they will livestream the trial when it occurs.
