Former Mesa County employee Tina Peters will be sentenced Monday for disability

DENVER – Former Mesa County employee Tina Peters will be back in court Monday to hear her verdict following her conviction in a misdemeanor count.

A jury found Peters guilty last month of obstructing government operations by refusing to turn over an iPad she allegedly used to videotape a court hearing in February 2022 involving former Mesa County Deputy Clerk, Belinda Knisley, was involved.

The case is separate from Peter’s alleged involvement in a voting machine security breach, in which she is accused of allowing a copy of a hard drive to be made during a 2021 machine upgrade.

Prosecutors allege Peters searched for evidence of former President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories with the help of former election executive Sandra Brown and Knisley.

Both Brown and Knisley have pleaded guilty to plea agreements and are expected to testify against their former boss.

Peters, who has become a hero among election conspiracy theorists, was also charged with obstructing a peace officer in connection with the iPad incident but was acquitted by the same jury last month.

The disability charges stem from a video recorded at a bagel shop in Grand Junction on February 8, 2022, where she was accused of attempting to kick an officer who was serving an iPad arrest warrant.

The former county clerk faces up to 120 days in prison and/or a fine of up to $750 at Monday’s hearing in Mesa County.
