Mesa County District Attorney Reacts To Blagg Verdict

Grand Junction, CO - It was the Mesa County District Attorney's Office that prosecuted the original 2004 trial and the 2018 retrial of Michael Blagg for the murder of his wife Jennifer.

On Thursday, following the guilty verdict in the retrial, Mesa County District Attorney Dan Rubinstein reacted with relief and gratitude over the conviction and subsequent life sentence without parole.

Rubinstein said that justice has finally been served for Jennifer and Abby Blagg, and that he was pleased the jury in Jefferson County convicted Michael Blagg. He thanked his team of prosecutors who spent several weeks living and working out of a hotel room in the Denver area as they prosecuted the case in Jefferson County.
