Governor appoints new DA in 14th Judicial District

Gov. John Hickenlooper announced Monday the appointment of Brett Barkey as district attorney in the 14th Judicial District.

Governor's office: District attorney appointment coming today

The immediate successor, at least in the short term, for 14th Judicial District Attorney Elizabeth Oldham will be announced today, officials with Gov. John Hickenlooper’s communications office said. Eric Brown, the governor’s communications director, would not comment on the number of applicants vying for the temporary appointment or the appointment process. Last month, Oldham announced her resignation to take a job as the senior deputy district attorney in Arapahoe County. Oldham said she accepted the position because it would allow her to spend more time in the courtroom.
