Woman Convicted In P.O.S.T. Exam Case

DENVER (CBS4)– A woman accused of mishandling her duties as a proctor for Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training Exams, then lying about it, has been found guilty in connection with the case.

Julie Carleen Johnson-Garcia was found guilty Tuesday by a jury of attempt to influence a public servant. She was immediately sentenced to two years probation.

Johnson-Garcia, 56, was found not guilty of an additional charge of tampering with a witness.

Johnson-Garcia was working for the Colorado P.O.S.T. unit at the Colorado Attorney General’s Office as a proctor last year.

She was the subject of an investigation by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office into how two men had been to take a P.O.S.T. exam from home and how a copy of an actual exam had been allowed to circulate among a small number of cadets in La Junta.

Johnson-Garcia was charged after she lied to the investigator with the Colorado Attorney General’s Office and persuaded two others to lie as well.
