An Assistant Denver City Attorney has resigned and a Denver Police Officer has been disciplined after the cop admitted "fixing" a speeding ticket for the prosecutor's boyfriend.
The Denver City Attorney's office says Dani Eliscu resigned March 17 after being confronted about the ticket fixing.
"That is not OK, not acceptable and unethical to do anything like that," said Vince DiCroce, director of prosecution for the Denver City Attorney's office.
The incident began Feb. 18, when Denver Police traffic officer James Gates issued a speeding ticket at 6th Avenue and Kalamath to Jeremy Rosenthal, Eliscu's boyfriend.
According to the sworn statement from officer Gates, Rosenthal "told me his wife worked for the City Attorney's Office and she was a prosecutor. He asked if that changed anything." The statement and other information were obtained by CBS4 under a Colorado Open Records Act request.
