    Default Garnett will take over JonBenet Ramsey slaying case in January

    Garnett will take over JonBenet Ramsey slaying case in January
    By Ivan Moreno, Associated Press
    Monday, July 14, 2008

    DENVER -- When Boulder County district attorney candidate Stan Garnett checked his cell phone after a long flight last week, he had dozens of messages asking his opinion about the latest DNA tests in the JonBenet Ramsey case.

    The barrage of e-mails and voice mails reflects the scrutiny the case could bring Garnett, who appears likely to become the third district attorney on the 12-year-old homicide.

    Garnett, 52, a Democrat, has no opposition in either party for the November election. He would replace Mary Lacy, who must step down in January because of term limits.

    What changes he might bring, if any, to the investigation are not clear.

    “I intend to treat the case like any other case, in that the DA’s job is to take a very thoughtful, careful and clear-eyed view of the evidence and what can be proven in court,” he said.

    No changes expected there, then. He's a good Boulder Colorado Democrat.

    He said a mouthful here - they are two very different things. Not knowing who did what stonewalled this case from the beginning.

    It's probably too late to get justice for JonBenét. Maybe it always was. But knowing where things went wrong is the first step to not going there again. **-- Alan Prendergast-Dec 21, 2006--**

    Well, the DA's job should also be to LOOK AT ALL THE EVIDENCE AND CASE FILES and we all know what a "great" job Lacy did at that. It's as if she went out of her way NOT to know all the evidence, because that might make her see the possibility that these people did kill their child, and she had already made up her mind that they didn't.

    There are always going to be some stinkers in both of the two major political parties. For instance, John Ramsey had planned to run for the Michigan state legislature as a Republican.

    Political preferences aside, I am keeping my fingers crossed that the new Boulder DA gets busy on this case and provides justice for JonBenet.

    Boy, you said it. I mean, God forbid she might make a mistake and forget to kiss their butts.

    It's not really about the party itself, it's about the structure of justice in Colorado - the Dems have owned Colorado for years, and the progressives in Boulder belong to that party. Not saying that either party can't have bad apples, but the one in power in Colorado gave us Hal Haddon, Alex Hunter, and Mary Lacy, as well as the Attorney General of Colorado at the time (forget the name) who refused to appoint a special prosecutor.

    It's more a power thing than any platform thing. The Dems are in charge, they are status quo because they carry the baton right now. Am I clear? It's unlikely that any Dem would want to rock the basket or bite the hand that feeds him - could be bad for his or her future career. It'd be one thing if it were Repubs in charge, because then the Dem could come in and "clean house," exposing the corruption, and win points from above for doing that...but to attack your own...welll.....let's say I hope for justice from other directions than the Boulder County DA's office.

    Default Garnett to replace top DA positions

    Garnett to replace top DA positions
    By Heath Urie (Contact)
    Thursday, August 14, 2008

    When Mary Lacy, Boulder County’s term-limited district attorney, leaves the office later this year, two of her most senior staff members will also be asked to leave by presumptive incoming DA Stan Garnett.

    Garnett on Thursday said he will bring with him at least two senior advisers and that he’s had conversations with Lacy’s top advisers about those plans.

    “I do intend to bring in at least two people from outside the office to help me in leading,” Garnett said. “It’s important you work with people who you know well.”

    Lacy on Thursday confirmed the affected advisers are her longtime first-assistant attorney Pete Maguire and assistant attorney Bill Nagel.

    Garnett, who does not face any challengers for the office in the November election, said he had the luxury of letting the men know far ahead of the election that he would prefer to bring with him his own advisers.

    “These folks are terrific folks,” Garnett said. “It has nothing to do with performance. These are issues that had to do with my management style.”

    Lacy, who took over the office in 2001, said Thursday that she understands Garnett’s decision.

    “Pete and Bill and myself expected that would be the case under the new DA,” Lacy said. “I think they will leave a huge hole to fill — but I also think Stan needs to develop his own programs with his own people.”

    Default Stutzman: What's ahead for the DA's office

    Stutzman: What's ahead for the DA's office

    It's a pretty safe assumption that the next time there's a news story involving the Boulder District Attorney's office, it is likely to be under a spotlight that is outsized for whatever the story may be.

    So while Stan Garnett faces a great opportunity as the presumed incoming district attorney for Boulder County, he also faces the burden that it's likely to occur under a national spotlight that's unusual for a county of this size.

    Love it or leave it, our community is associated (for the time being) with the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey and the University of Colorado recruitment scandal that resulted in a multi-million dollar settlement following a Title IX lawsuit.

    And the district attorney's office, for all of the good it does prosecuting crimes in the county, is inextricably tied to those.

    Garnett, a longtime Boulder Democrat, is running unopposed in November to take over for Mary Lacy, who is term limited.

    He named his three top advisers on Monday: Ryan Brackley as first assistant district attorney; Christopher C. Zenisek as assistant district attorney; and Catherine Olguin as administrative deputy.

    He also has some stated goals that bode well for the county: A more open relationship with the press (which means: with the public.) And a stated goal of a straight-forward relationship with law enforcement.

    Lacy's office has come under fire for saying it put the school "on notice" about recruitment problems, but such vague language with the absence of charges served as a stumbling block. It was criticized for some of the recent scandals surrounding the Ramsey murder: Namely, for bringing John Mark Karr to Boulder, and more recently, for sending a letter to the Ramsey family "clearing" them of the completely unsolved crime.

    For Garnett's part, he said in a prepared statement: "The JonBenet Ramsey case is neither more, nor less, important than any other unsolved homicide."

    It's doubtful that the Karr debacle nor the ill-conceived "exoneration" letter would have happened in any "other" unsolved homicide. It looks like the DA's office is headed in the right direction.

    Or any other jurisdiction, for that matter!

    I reserve judgment.
