KRDO TV in Colorado Springs is reporting that Tina Peters, who is now running for Chair of the Colorado Republican Party, believes her ongoing legal battles won’t hurt her ability to lead the Party if she is elected. She also believes she will not serve any jail time in connection with her conviction on obstructing government operations.
A jury found Peters guilty of the charge earlier this month. She is scheduled to be sentenced at 9:00 a.m. on April 10 in Courtroom 2 at the Mesa County Justice Center.
Peters told KRDO, “I promise you I’m not going to jail. This is not a jailable offense, so I’m not worried at all.”
Her conviction carries a potential sentence of up to 6 months in jail, a $750 fine, or probation and community service.
