Check out @lancebenzel on Twitter for a live account of former Colorado Springs police officer Joshua Carrier’s sentencing hearing, scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday before 4th Judicial District Judge David A. Gilbert.
Carrier, 31, will receive a life sentence, as I detailed in today’s Gazette.
He is also expected to remain silent – but relatives of some of the 22 boys who lodged sexual abuse allegations against him may address the court.
On my Twitter account, you will find details I won’t be able to provide in print. A warning though: Given the limitations in technology – and limitations of this observer – you may occasionally encounter confusing passages.
Feel free to shoot me a note during the live coverage and I will do my best to answer questions.
My coverage will not identify students or their parents by name.

Hope to see you on Friday morning.
