Deputy DA resigns

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS Deputy District Attorney Charles Feldmann abruptly resigned from his position within the 14th Judicial District Attorney's Office Monday.

Feldmann's resignation comes on the heels of 14th Judicial District Attorney Paul McLimans' intent to have the Routt County Court appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate an expense fund.

Late last week, Feldmann met with McLimans to discuss the expense fund.

"There were some issues and concerns raised about some expense funds," McLimans said Tuesday. "It is a matter I don't intend to investigate. But I am going to request that another office look into the matter that may require further action."

McLimans refused to comment on the concerns that were raised regarding the expense fund.

"Because it is going to be referred to someone else for an investigation, I'm not at liberty to discuss the facts," McLimans said.

McLimans was notified of Feldmann's resignation through a brief letter.

"We had a discussion late last week, and he tendered a brief letter Monday," he said. "It didn't articulate a specific reason.

Feldmann could not be reached for comment.

Feldmann worked as a prosecutor in the 14th Judicial District for a little more than four years. (Gary E. Salazar is a reporter with the Steamboat Springs Pilot/Today.)
