No Deal Reached, Paschall Headed for Trial

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Former Jefferson County Treasurer Mark Paschall, one leg of the so-called “Kings of Corruption” in Jeffco (along with Commissioners Kevin McCasky and Jim Congrove) is apparently going to have his day in court after all. As The Canyon Courier reports:

Former Jefferson County treasurer Mark Paschall has either not been offered a plea bargain, or he has failed to agree on one with prosecutors by the court-imposed Aug. 5 deadline for filing such an arrangement.

According to court records, Paschall has not reached an agreement on pleading guilty to anything less than the lead charge of attempted felony theft.

He also faces one count of compensation for past official behavior for allegedly soliciting a kickback from a $25,000 bonus he offered to a former political appointee after he lost his bid for re-election last November.

Paschall will face a jury trial set to begin on Oct. 16 in Jefferson County. The trial is expected to last up to four days.

  1. The saying is that you settle your dogs and take your good cases to trial.  The case against Paschall purportedly with solid evidence like tape recordings, is about as strong as they get and high profile as well, just the sort of thing a prosecutor wants to take to trial.

    The quality of a plea deal has much more to do with clarity of guilt than with the severity of the offense.
