The prosecutor who charged N-B-A star Kobe Bryant with sexual assault will keep his job for another term.

Republican Mark Hurlbert won 52 percent of the votes yesterday compared to 48 percent for Democratic attorney Bruce Brown of Evergreen.

The outcome was in doubt until midday today when the final precincts reported from Summit County, where Hurlbert lives. Brown led in the other three counties in the Fifth Judicial District.

Hurlbert was appointed to the job in December 2002 to finish the term of Mike Goodbee, who was named deputy attorney general.

Hurlbert dropped the sexual assault charge against Bryant on September first after the alleged victim said she would stop participating in the case.

Hurlbert has said he was convinced Bryant would've been convicted if the woman testified.
