DENVER — A man accused of trying to influence the decision of jurors as they entered a courthouse has been formally charged with jury tampering, according to the Denver DA’s office.

Mark Iannicelli, 56, is charged with seven counts of jury tampering.

The charges allege that Iannicelli set up a small booth with a cardboard sign that read “Juror Info” in front of the Lindsay-Flanigan Courthouse on Monday morning and provided jury nullification flyers to actual and potential jury pool members.

The affidavit for his arrest says that at the time of the offense, a death penalty case was underway at the same courthouse.

Iannicelli has been released from custody on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on August 11 at 1:30 p.m. to be advised of the charges.
