First Judicial DA’s Office a leader at statewide conference

Earning recognition for excellence and training prosecutors across the state, the leadership of the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office (Gilpin/Jefferson) was on full display at the annual Colorado District Attorneys’ Council (CDAC) Fall Conference.
 
Nichole Dean, a paralegal in the First Judicial DA’s Office, was recognized with the CDAC Outstanding Trial Team Award alongside other members of a multi-jurisdictional team that successfully secured a murder conviction for Mark Redwine in Durango.
 
“It’s such an honor to be recognized along with the others who spent countless hours on this case,” Dean said. “At the end of the day though, the most important thing is that we were able to hold Mark Redwine accountable for the murder of his 13-year-old son.”
 
Special Projects Administrator Erin Collard was honored with the Cindy Nelson Office Manager Award for helping coordinate a smooth transition when newly elected District Attorney Alexis King took office in January. Having been in her position for the past three years, Collard is essential to the office’s daily operations.
 
“Erin was already a critical part of this office before I arrived and has not relented in her tireless efforts to help us run efficiently so that we can best serve our community,” King said. “She is an invaluable asset to this administration and just a great person to be around.”  
 
DA King co-hosted a presentation on collecting and utilizing data to reduce harm, ensure equitable criminal justice outcomes and promote community health and safety. Hosting a panel of chief deputy DAs from around Colorado, First Judicial Assistant District Attorney Amanda Gall provided current and emerging leaders in prosecution offices with advice and insights into the role.
 
“With our office’s focus on effective and ethical prosecution, we’re implementing evidence-based strategies to pursue a more transparent, equitable and efficient criminal justice system here in Gilpin and Jefferson County,” Gall said. “This was a great opportunity to not only share our successes with our partners across the state, but learn more about the innovative work other leaders are doing.”
