San Juan County clerk who falsified a document to oust Navajo Willie Grayeyes from ballot won't face charges


January 18, 2019

In one of his last acts as county attorney, Grand County’s top prosecutor declined to file criminal charges against a San Juan County clerk who illegally booted a Navajo candidate — now a county commissioner — from the November ballot.

Former Grand County Attorney Andrew Fitzgerald sent a letter to San Juan County prosecutors Dec. 21, outlining his reasons for not charging clerk John David Nielson, said Danalee Gerber, a paralegal for Grand County, on Wednesday. Fitzgerald left the prosecutor’s office in January to work in private practice.
