Criminal allegations against the Loveland detective Brian Koopman will not be used during his testimony in a separate [Stan Romanek] case
He [Joshua Ritter, district attorney] said the question to the jury, in this case, is whether Romanek possessed and distributed pornographic material of children.
Judge Daniel Kaup said the criminal case against Koopman has yet to be adjudicated.
“I think the court would be overstepping its legal authority … to draw that conclusion,” Kaup said. “… I don’t dispute that there’s information out there. The question is that is it factually relevant in this case, so that the court should allow you to further explore that information in the personnel file.”
He denied the defense’s request for access to information in the criminal case against the detective.
