Flags are lowered at all El Paso County facilities in honor of former District Attorney Robert L. Russel. Russel served five terms as District Attorney from 1965 to 1985.
In 2006, the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners rededicated the Professional Building at 105 East Vermijo in Colorado Springs as the "Robert L. Russel Professional Building." The building houses the Office of the Fourth Judicial District Attorney and is across the street from the Historic 1903 El Paso County Courthouse where Russel began his career as District Attorney.
Robert L. Russel passed away Wednesday in Colorado Springs at the age of 82.
