Wake-Up Call: Is Erik Osborn on the lam?
Erik Osborn, the disgraced developer who has a December 7 trial date in Denver District Court, failed to show up for a hearing yesterday.
The Denver District Attorney's office sent this brief note to some of the complainants in what has grown into two separate criminal cases against Erik Osborn, including "Dealing Doug" Moreland, who got involved in Osborn's One Lincoln Place project, and Michelle Brokaw, a one-time partner in 1800 Glenarm: "Mr. Osborn failed to appear for court this morning. A warrant has issued for his arrest, no bond."
A judge had earlier reduced Osborn's bond, allowing him to live in California, where he'd been working as a "contractor." Location, location, location: Osborn's home there is close to the beach... and not far from the border.
