No prosecution in case against state senator

The Denver District Attorney’s Office says it will not file charges against state Sen. Steve King because there is insufficient evidence to prove he violated state disclosure laws.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Joe Morales says he does not have enough evidence to prove allegations that King failed to disclose income from a $17,850 contract King had with then-Mesa State College and two employment stints in 2012 and 2013 while he was in office.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Morales says some of the allegations are beyond the statute of limitations and there is evidence King complied with the letter of the law by disclosing the work done privately under his contracts.

King did not respond to a phone message left with his office on Sunday.
