Pitkin County prosecutor quits

The prosecutor who handles domestic violence, DUIs and other misdemeanor cases in Pitkin County Court resigned last week.

Michael Warren, 30, confirmed his resignation Tuesday and said his last day on the job will be Nov. 6. However, he declined to comment on the reason for his resignation.

A phone message left Tuesday for 9th Judicial District Attorney Sherry Caloia was not returned.

Warren, an Oklahoma native who attended law school at the University of Colorado, has spent the past year in Aspen prosecuting cases in front of Pitkin County Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely.

Among the more recent high-profile cases handled by Warren include the domestic violence case against prominent Aspen developer and landlord Nikos Hecht and the weapons charges against Aspen postal worker Mauro Pennini.
