LAW WEEK COLORADO
DENVER — Former Montrose District Attorney Myrl Serra stipulated on Monday to disbarment.
Serra pleaded guilty in October to unlawful sexual contact and extortion, facing up to 12 years in prison when he’s sentenced next month. Criminal charges were brought last year after three female employees of his office came forward with allegations that he coerced or attempted to coerce them to perform sexual favors.
“[Serra's] status as the elected District Attorney at the time he committed the misconduct described herein warrants a more severe sanction than might otherwise be imposed,” the disbarment stipulation said. “When a district attorney such as [Serra] commits serious criminal acts while holding an elected office to which he has sworn to uphold the laws of the State of Colorado, imposition of the most severe sanction available is appropriate.”
