Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Although an arrest warrant was issued for disgraced developer Erik Osborn last Thursday, he's back on the right side of the law...for now.

Turns out that Osborn may not have known he had to appear at the pre-trial hearing in Denver District Court on November 19 (it's tough to keep track of everything when you change lawyers), and when he showed up on Monday, the arrest warrant was vacated and the pre-trial hearing was rescheduled for December 3.

That's just four days before his One Lincoln Park trial is slated to start. Until then, Osborn is out on bond.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
