Kimball's DOC mugshot
Scott Kimball is sent to Sterling Correctional Facility to start serving his 70-year prison term.
He could first be eligible for parole in 38.5 years, at age 81, according to the Colorado Department of Corrections.
“I won’t spend the rest of my life in prison, ” Kimball later told the Camera through his cousin. (See story.)
Those are the desperate words of a man with nothing left to do but “sit in prison and rationalize his sentence and minimize his crimes,” Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett responded.
Garnett said he’s confident Kimball will die in prison.

In a search of Scott Kimball’s cell in the Sterling Correctional Facility, an FBI agent finds several fraudulent documents.
Claiming that Kimball used discovery from his own case to create the fake FBI papers from behind bars, Boulder County prosecutor Katharina Booth files a motion trying to prevent Kimball from accessing anymore hard-copy files.
She contends Kimball disseminated the doctored reports to the media in an effort to show that other people were involved in the deaths of his four victims.
The Camera received several of Kimball’s bogus documents in late 2009. One had the plural header “Federal Bureau of Investigations.” It featured a February 2006 interview with Steve Ennis at the federal prison in Beaumont, Texas. However, U.S. Bureau of Prisons officials said Ennis was never housed at the Beaumont facility. FBI Special Agent Jonny Grusing, who purportedly conducted the interview, was still nine months away from being assigned to the case.
