Montrose, Colo.- Former Montrose District Attorney Myrl Serra turned himself in Wednesday morning, revoking his own bond. According to Colin Bresee, Serra's attorney, it was his client's choice to go into custody. Serra was convicted last week of harassing one of his former employees, and violating both his bond conditions and protection order.
The victim was listed under a protection order stemming from a separate case, in which Serra is accused of unlawful sexual contact and several other offenses against his former employees. Serra is accused of allegedly committing the offenses during his time as Montrose District Attorney. That case will go to trial at the end of October, and sentencing for his conviction last week was scheduled to occur after the conclusion of the trial. However, according to the Montrose Daily Press, jail records show Serra has already turned himself in to begin serving his sentence. Serra was free on a $5,000 bond that he posted after his arrest last year.
