Greeley City Councilman Eddie Mirick listens during a court hearing Tuesday. Weld District Judge Marcelo Kopcow on Thursday ruled Mirick is ineligible to serve on the city council because of a 40-year-old felony conviction on his record.

GREELEY — The Greeley City Council has been told to replace a councilman who is a convicted felon.

The Greeley Tribune reports that a Weld District Court ruled on Thursday that Eddie Mirick, who was elected Nov. 7 and served as a council member for nearly a month, should be removed from office.

Mirick pleaded guilty to felony forgery in 1978, and despite arguing the felony was later reduced to a misdemeanor, Mirick was found to still have the felony on his record after a group of residents petitioned the court.
