Kricken happy

Judge Tori Kricken presides over a 2019 naturalization ceremony in Albany County's district court. This week, Kricken quashes subpoenas issued by a defense attorney for the personnel files of Derek Colling, a detective with the county's sheriff's office.

Albany County District Court Judge Tori Kricken ruled Tuesday that the personnel records of Derek Colling, the sheriff’s deputy who fatally shot a Laramie man in November, can not be subpoenaed as evidence by a defense attorney in a local felony prosecution.

Laramie attorney Cole Sherard, who represents an Albany County ranch manager charged with aggravated assault and battery, had subpoenaed both Albany County and Laramie governments for the Colling’s records.
