Boulder Woman Pleads Guilty to Distribution of Heroin Resulting in Death

Denver  –  Kirsten Lippold, 48, of Boulder, Colorado, pled guilty today to distribution of heroin resulting in death.  The proceedings were held before U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore.  Lippold’s guilty plea followed a one-count indictment, which was returned by a Federal Grand Jury in July of 2017.  That indictment alleged that Lippold distributed heroin, a Schedule I controlled substance, the use of which resulted in an overdose death on August 17, 2015. 

Following her guilty plea, Kirsten Lippold was remanded into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  Her sentencing hearing will take place on August 2, 20118.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Boulder County Drug Task Force, the Boulder Police Department, and the Fort Collins Resident Agency of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bradley W. Giles.

CASE NUMBER:  17-cr-00241-RM
