Paul Wiese for DA 2016

Paul Wiese for DA 2016 I am running for District Attorney in the Thirteenth Judicial District (Morgan, Logan, Washington, Sedgwick, Phillips, Yuma and Kit Carson Counties).

PUBLIC SAFETY- NOT POLITICS

I am running for District Attorney because I want all the communities of northeastern Colorado to be safe places to live and to raise a family. The District Attorney is the chief law enforcement officer for the Thirteenth Judicial District (Morgan, Logan, Washington, Sedgwick, Phillips, Yuma and Kit Carson Counties) and is responsible for prosecuting all criminal case

s filed in courts of the district. The District Attorney must The office of District Attorney is a position of great responsibility and accountability to the communities served by the office and the person who holds that office must be someone who the public can rely on to excise the power an authority of the office in an appropriate and responsible manner while still ensuring public safety. As your District Attorney I will work to ensure public safety and accountability to the public through:

• Aggressive prosecution of violent crime and anyone who commits crimes against children, at-risk adults, and the elderly. The citizens of the Thirteenth Judicial District expect and demand that they will be safe in their communities from violent criminals and those who would pray on our most vulnerable citizens.

• Aggressive prosecution of drug dealers. Methamphetamine and other hard drugs are a plague that drag down our communities, and destroy lives and families. Drug dealers only care about making money and do not care about the lives they destroy while plying their trade. Prosecution of drug dealers has not been a priority of the current District Attorney. I will work closely with law enforcement to investigate and prosecute drug dealers.

• Restoring a strong relationship between the District Attorney’s Office and Law Enforcement. It is essential that law enforcement and the District Attorney work together to protect the public by ensuring that crimes are properly investigated and prosecuted. Under the current District Attorney’s administration this close working relationship does not exist. As your District Attorney I will restore this relationship.

• Protecting the gun rights of the citizens of the 13th Judicial District. As District Attorney I will not prosecute anyone for lawfully possessing a firearm or for lawfully using a firearm for self-defense.

• Improving communication between victims of crime and the District Attorney’s Office.

• Putting an end to commuter prosecutors who live outside of the 13th Judicial District. The current District Attorney allows several of her prosecutors, including her second-in-command, to live outside the judicial district. Anyone who prosecutes criminal cases in this judicial district and is paid by local tax dollars should have to live in this judicial district. As District Attorney I will require all employees to live within the judicial district.

This was the wrong outcome for this case.

Why did the District Attorney seek a murder indictment against Robert Smith if she was just going to turn around and dismiss the charge?

It is time for a change in the District Attorney's Office.

I am that change. If you agree please vote for me in November.

The Log Lane Village man charged with the death of Laurie Teter will be serving a 22-year prison sentence--but not for murder.

EXPERIENCED PROSECUTOR MILITARY VETERAN SMALL BUSINESS OWNER

Paul Wiese learned the value of hard work and integrity at an early age while growing up in a blue-collar home. His mother was a nurse and his father an electrician. He worked various part-time jobs, including paper routes, washing dishes, and retail, while attending junior high and high school.

After graduating from high school he enlisted in the United States Army where he served as a Medical Specialist. He was honorably discharged from the United States Army in 1989.

After his military service he went on to earn his undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from Metropolitan State University of Denver. He chose to pursue criminal justice because of his continued to desire to protect the community. Paul then decided the best way to utilize his skills for the community’s benefit was in the practice of Law. Consequently, he then earned his law degree from Ohio Northern University School of Law. Wanting to serve his home community of Coloradans Paul was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 2000.

During his almost twelve years working as a prosecutor Paul has prosecuted over forty felony and misdemeanor cases in district and county court involving charges of drug distribution and possession, sexual assault, burglary, D.U.I., domestic violence, and many other criminal acts.

Paul began his career prosecuting criminals in Pueblo County, Colorado.

Paul then moved to the District Attorney’s Office for the Third Judicial District, which covers Las Animas and Huerfano Counties, from 2001 to 2007. His outstanding record led to him being assigned sole responsibility for the prosecution of all felony, juvenile and misdemeanor cases in the Huerfano County office staring in 2006.

In 2007, Paul was hired as a Deputy District Attorney for the Thirteenth Judicial District, which covers, Morgan, Logan, Washington, Yuma, Phillips, Sedgwick, and Kit Carson Counties, where he continued his successful prosecution of felony and misdemeanor cases through 2012.

The District Attorney is the chief law enforcement officer for the Thirteenth Judicial District (Morgan, Logan, Washington, Sedgwick, Phillips, Yuma and Kit Carson Counties) and is responsible for prosecuting all criminal cases filed in courts of the district.

As your District Attorney you can rely on me to exercise the power and authority of the office in an appropriate and responsible manner while still ensuring public safety.

Furthermore, I will work to ensure public safety and accountability to the public through:

• Commonsense prosecution of criminal offenses. This includes the aggressive prosecution of violent crime, diversion of low level drug possession cases and appropriate juvenile cases, proper training and supervision of deputy prosecutors and staff, and hands-on review of all major cases.

• Building a strong relationship between the District Attorney’s Office and Law Enforcement. It is essential that law enforcement and the District Attorney work hand in hand to protect the public by ensuring that crimes are properly investigated and prosecuted.

• Protecting the gun rights of the citizens of the 13th Judicial District. As District Attorney I will not prosecute anyone for lawfully possessing a firearm or for lawfully using a firearm for self-defense.

• Improving communication between victims of crime and the District Attorney’s Office. The District Attorney is a servant of the people and I shall ensure that fair and equitable treatment of victims is first and foremost in the minds of all my staff.

• Putting an end to commuter prosecutors who live outside of the 13th Judicial District. The current District Attorney allows several of her prosecutors, including her second-in-command, to live outside the judicial district. Anyone who prosecutes criminal cases in this judicial district and is paid by local tax dollars should be proud to live in this judicial district. As District Attorney I will require all employees to live within the judicial district.
