LESYSHEN ENTERS PLEA OF INSANITY

court-300Routt County’s Lisa Lesyshen has entered pleas of Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity to the charges of First-Degree Murder and Child Abuse Resulting in Death in a courtroom in Denver. The charges stem from an incident last May in which nine-year old Asher Lesyshen-Kirlan was found shot to death in his home in Stagecoach. Leyshen is accused of shooting the boy, and then herself.  It was reported that she and her husband were having marital problems.  Judge Michael O’Hara accepted the pleas and ordered Lesyshen to be evaluated by a state-appointed psychiatrist. The evaluation will be given to the court and parties no later than May 21st. Once the report is received the Court will set the case for trial. Meanwhile, Lesyshen will remain housed at the Denver County Jail Infirmary.

GUN LAWS LAWSUIT GOES TO TRIAL NEXT MONTH

AR GUNThe trial in the lawsuit against the state over new gun control laws is expected to start next month.  Participants from both sides of the argument met yesterday in Federal Court to hash out pre-trial details.  The lawsuit, which lists the Colorado Outfitters Association as the lead plaintiff, challenges the constitutionality of new laws expanding background checks and limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines.  Most sheriffs in the state were at one time a part of the lawsuit, but a judge has already ruled that the sheriffs had no standing in their official capacity.  Those that remained involved did so in a personal capacity.  The case goes to trial March 31st.

 

LAWMAKERS PROPOSE MORE MONEY FOR EDUCATION

school-fundingA bipartisan group of Colorado lawmakers are proposing $263 million more in funding for various education initiatives.  Legislative leaders announced yesterday that $80 million of those funds would go to districts to fill recession-era budget cuts that resulted in late-state days and other cutbacks. Other areas include $35 million would go to help English-language learners, $100 million for teacher evaluations, and $20 million for literacy programs.  A bill outlining the spending package will be introduced in the House soon. The spending plan is dependent on next month’s state revenue forecast.  The money would come from the state’s general fund and is in addition to the $258.4 million in new total program funding for K-12 education that is in Governor John Hickenlooper’s budget request.

 

LAWMAKERS WANT TO RAISE SMOKING AGE TO 21

NO SMOKINGA proposal to raise the tobacco age to 21 has been approved by a Colorado House panel.  The bipartisan bill could make Colorado the first with a statewide 21-to-smoke law. It passed the House Health, Insurance, and Environment Committee on a 6-4 party-line vote yesterday afternoon.  People who are currently between the ages of 18 and 20 would be grandfathered in, meaning the measure wouldn’t be fully implemented until today’s 17-year-olds are 21.  It’s not clear how many of Colorado’s current smokers are younger than 21. However, doctors say that 9 out of 10 daily smokers have their first cigarette by 18 years of age.  The measure awaits one more committee vote before heading to the full House.
