Trump-Loving County Clerk Tina Peters Facing Jail Time After Being Found Guilty Of Obstructing Gov. Operation



Tina Peters found guilty

Trump supporter Tina Peters, the former clerk of Mesa County, Colorado, and prominent 2020 election denier, is facing jail time after a jury on Friday found her guilty of obstruction of a government operation, according to CPR News.

The former county official was arrested by Grand Junction police in February 2022 at a local business while state investigators attempted to execute a search warrant. Peters was not cooperating with investigators as they tried to seize an iPad sought in the search warrant, according to a police affidavit from the Grand Junction Police Department.

Peters stepped in between an officer and a patron who allegedly blocked investigators from accessing the table. When officers tried to move her to the side, she “actively” resisted, the affidavit said.

In the same trial, Peters was acquitted of obstructing a peace officer, the report states. After hearing two days of testimony, a six-person jury returned the split verdicts on Peters.

Her sentencing on the misdemeanor conviction is scheduled for April 10. She could face up to three months in jail and a $750 fine.

Peters still faces multiple felony counts for her alleged involvement in the election security breach in her county offices.

Peters’ legal troubles began after allegedly helping someone breach the security of her office’s election equipment and lying about their identity to state officials as part of Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
