BOULDER, Colo. — A judge denied a request by a former Boulder police officer accused of shooting a trophy elk to move his trail elsewhere Wednesday.
Sam Carter is accused of shooting the elk in a Boulder neighborhood on New Year’s Day. Fellow officer Brent Curnow was accused of helping Carter plan the shooting and cover it up.
Curnow pleaded guilty to one felony count of tampering why physical evidence and four misdemeanor counts. He was sentenced Tuesday to one year probation and 60 days of house arrest.
The judge also ordered Curnow to serve 120 hours of community service. He received a two-year deferred sentence for the felony tampering charge. As long as he complies with the terms of his sentence, the felony will be wiped from his record, the judge said.
The Boulder District Attorney’s Office said it has not extended a similar plea deal to Carter.
