After a three day trial held in The District Court at Gunnison County Colorado, former Detention Center Captain Michelle Zadra was found guilty on 12 counts of an indictment filed by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. The Gunnison County Sheriff requested assistance from CBI in regard to issues in the Detention Center.  Allegations of contraband being introduced into the Detention Center as well as inmates private telephone calls to attorneys being listened to as well as other issues prompted the request for the investigation. Zadra’s conviction was a result of allegations of privileged inmate conversations being listened to which led to perjury charges being filed against her. She was found guilty of nine felony counts of perjury and three misdemeanors counts including official misconduct.  Zadra is scheduled for sentencing in June.
