The western Colorado district attorney suspected of unlawful sexual contact was the subject of a restraining order filed by a 39-year-old woman.
The Denver Post reports that the woman filed a restraining order in Montrose County against Myrl Serra in 2008 and again on Sept. 20. Serra, the top prosecutor in the 7th Judicial District based in Montrose, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of unlawful sexual contact, indecent exposure and official misconduct. He was later released on bond.
The unidentified woman who took out the order declined comment but said she spoke with a prosecutor on Thursday.
The Montrose County sheriff's office received allegations about Serra on Sept. 17 but details of the case have been sealed.
