With the flood water receding, other dangers have arisen. District Attorney Stanley Garnett warns city residents via the Boulder Office of Emergency Management website of scammers posing as FEMA agents, asking for a fee to assess flood-related damages. Garnett: “Always check for ID before you let anyone into your home.”
Meanwhile, Garnett himself faces a lawsuit, according to multiple local and national media reports. The District Attorney twice dismissed requests by reporter Charlie Brennan filed under the Colorado Open Records Act asking him to release an indictment in the still unsolved case of the 1996 death of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey. Brennan and an advocacy group are now taking legal action in seeking release of the document.
And it gets even worse for Garnett: The District Attorney will lose his deputy, Bruce Langer, the Daily Camera reports. Langer gets a promotion and will replace the departing District Judge Gwyneth Whalen on the bench of the 20th Judical District, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper announced.
