Former Craig city councilman sentenced for internet luring in Lakewood

Former Craig city councilman Brian Paul Mackenzie (DOB: 03-28-1971) was sentenced by the First Judicial District Court on Friday to a minimum of 10 years in Colorado’s Sex Offender Intensive Supervision Program.

Mackenzie will be supervised in the community and must register as a sex offender and participate in sex offender treatment.

A Jefferson County jury found Mackenzie guilty on Sept. 9, of Internet Luring of a Child with Intent to Exploit, Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child and Attempted Sexual Assault of a Child.

In October 2019, undercover officers from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office engaging in a sting operation were contacted by Mackenzie. Believing the officers to be a 14-year-old girl, Mackenzie sent sexually explicit messages and arranged a meeting at what he believed to be her parents’ Lakewood residence. On his way to the home, Mackenzie was taken into custody and condoms were found in the glovebox of his vehicle.

Mackenzie resigned from his elected position with Craig City Council following his arrest.
