Man jailed for role in Fort Collins April riot

A Fort Collins citizen accused of being an instigator in the April riots last year was sentenced to 180 days in jail on Tuesday.

On April 27, 2013, hundreds of people went to a party in the Summerhill neighborhood that escalated into a riot. When police arrived, they were assaulted by various items thrown by the angry crowd. Several months later, fifteen people, eight of whom were CSU students, were faced with charges for participating in the riot.

Kodi Noel, 24, was one of the Fort Collins citizens charged in Nov. 2013. He was charged with a misdemeanor, which was a lesser charge than what was possible. Reports also indicated Noel may have thrown beer bottles at police officers in the midst of the confusion.

Noel’s trial began Wednesday, Jan. 15, and the jury began deliberating Thursday afternoon. At the sentencing hearing Tuesday, District Judge Thomas French laid out the sentence of 180 days. Noel was taken straight from the courtroom to Larimer County Jail.
