DA vindicates UATC’s Quigley

The Jefferson County, Colo., District Attorney’s Office and Sheriffs Dept. have agreed to pay $75,000 to United Artists Theatre Circuit’s William Quigley, who was accused of intimidating and harassing his neighbors because they are Jewish.

District Atty. David Thomas also issued an apology to Quigley and his wife, Dee, saying the office’s filing and prosecution of harassment and ethnic intimidation charges was “a mistake.” All parties agreed to drop any claims filed.

Last December, Quigley, senior VP of marketing for UATC, had been accused of threatening neighbors Mitchell and Candice Aronson shortly after they moved to Evergreen, Colo., from New York.

Following a three-week investigation by the county sheriffs department, the DA filed charges that Quigley had violated Colorado’s ethnic intimidation statute.

Investigators had listened to tape recordings of phone conversations and read more than 1,200 pages of transcripts; a judge dismissed the charges in January.
