Ex-Boulder Police Officer Found Guilty on 9 Counts
The verdict has just come in and the vote was unanimous, ex-Boulder Police Officer, Sam Carter has been found guilty of all nine counts against him.
In a very heated case a jury has come back from deliberations with a guilty verdict in the case against ex-Boulder Police Officer Sam Carter. Carter not only killed the ‘town elk,’ but lied on top of it. The whole series of events that followed the shooting snowballed into a big mess.
According to our friends at 7 news, a jury of five men and seven women found Carter guilty of all nine counts against him in the horrifying killing of “Big Boy” a trophy elk in Boulder’s Mapleton Hill neighborhood. The shooting took place on New Year’s Day in 2013.
The jury took about four hours to come up with the verdict. The conviction(s) includes four felonies, including forgery and tampering with physical evidence. There are five misdemeanor charges including, but not limited to, official misconduct, aggravated illegal possession of wildlife, conspiracy to commit illegal possession of wildlife, hunting big game out of season.
Carter will be sentenced later this summer.
