Tina Peters Held In Contempt Of Court, Avoids Jail Again

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Tina Peters.

An update in the long and complicated legal proceedings against former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters today, as a Mesa County judge ruled Peters in contempt of court stemming from an incident in which Peters illegally recorded court proceedings. The iPad used to record that court hearing became the focus of an obstruction charge Peters was found guilty of in March after Peters tried to physically prevent investigators from getting possession, while today’s hearing was over Peters’ dishonesty regarding the unauthorized video recording.

In a preview of what we can expect from Peters’ main event trial later this year on felony misconduct and impersonation charges related to the theft of Dominion Voting Systems data, her former subordinate employee supplied some of the most damaging testimony:

Peters was sentenced last month to four months in home detention for the obstruction charge, but no jail time–and even that light sentence was suspended pending appeal. Overall, Peters has enjoyed what can only be called an accommodating legal process despite showing little but contempt for the judiciary system as a defendant. As a candidate for Secretary of State last year, Peters pushed the limits of her pre-trial travel restrictions to the point of nearly being jailed–but in the end was not. The obstruction charge and today’s contempt ruling are both related to Peters’ delusional sense of righteous impunity that in her mind allows her to simply defy lawful authority. That’s the same sense of impunity that led Peters to believe she could steal and distribute proprietary election system software in a failed attempt to prove that Donald Trump should still be President.

Unless Peters sees reason and cops a plea, her main event trial on felony charges is still looming.

Wish Peters a pleasant summer, because it could be her last for some time.

  1. Tina’s theology is as crapheaded as her insane conspiracy theory politics.

    Abraham lied to save himself.

    ’10 And Abimelek asked Abraham, “What was your reason for doing this?” 11 Abraham replied, “I said to myself, ‘There is surely no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.

    Abraham’s lies put Sarah in jeopardy.

    18 So Pharaoh called Abram and said, “What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? 19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her for my wife? Now then, here is your wife; take her, and go.

    Tina Peters is no Abraham, but she is a lying liar (who goes so far as to lie about her religion) — not even a slightly good liar.  Lying often and lying poorly is her religion.

    Some, wanting to build excuses for liar allies, will say that God can even use liars to accomplish her will. Even an imaginary God can do better than Tina Peters.

  2. Anyone know how often "contempt of court" is actually used in Colorado?  Or have a range of penalties applied to know if a $1500 fine (and no confinement) is unusually low or high?

    1. If she eventually makes it into a correctional facility, she will be seen as a celebrity. Remember the episode of Orange Is the New Black when that Southern cooking TV diva was sent to Litchfield to do her time. She ended up with a private cell and in a three way with Yoga Jones and John Luschek after getting stoned.

  3. For the love of Jesus, how many second chances is this asshole allowed while she thumbs her nose at the law? In the end, I sincerely hope she gets what she is so obviously asking for.
