Former Mayor Trial

(Eagle-AP) -- Police investigators testified Wednesday about evidence in an alleged attack on former Georgetown Mayor Koleen Brooks.

Officer Mark Dillard and Chris Andrist of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation took the stand in the trial against Brooks, who is accused of lying about the attack and tampering with evidence.

She has insisted that she was attacked and then framed by political opponents.

Andrist says tears in the clothing Brooks was wearing at the time of the alleged attack weren't consistent with the cuts and scratches on her body.

Defense attorneys say investigators focused too much on the possibility that Brooks was falsely reporting the attack and ignored other leads.

Brooks lost the mayorship of the mountain town 40 miles west of Denver in a recall election last April and had to close her hair salon and declare bankruptcy.
