Articles 2017 Albuq Jrnl 2017/04/25   Former Jemez Springs police chief sentenced. By Maggie Shepard https://www.abqjournal.com/993206/former-jeme-zsprings-police-chief-sentenced.html Excerpt:   A former Jemez Springs police chief and Valencia County sheriff’s deputy is forever barred from working as a police officer in the U.S., and he must spend the next five years on supervised probation after pleading no contest to charges stemming from a 2013 incident in which a teen accused him of sexually assaulting her during a traffic stop.The victim, now 23, spoke Tuesday morning before 13th Judicial District Judge George Eichwald in Sandoval County during sentencing for Shane Harger saying what happened that January 2013 night shattered her trust in law enforcement and violated Harger’s oath to protect the public.She and special prosecutor Mark Drebing said Harger digitally penetrated her during a bizarre traffic stop in Jemez Springs prompted by a confidential tip that the vehicle the teen was in was carrying heroin. https://www.abqjournal.com/993206/former-jeme-zsprings-police-chief-sentenced.html 2015 Albuquerque Journal 2015/09 Details emerge in police chief rape case. https://www.abqjournal.com/651228/details-emerge-in-police-chief-rape-case.html  Excerpt:  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The rape case against former Jemez Police Chief Shane Harger has been  dismissed, but a special prosecutor plans to refile charges.  The effort to dismiss the case reveals details of the January 2013 night Harger is accused of raping a 19-year-old Los Alamos woman traveling through his jurisdiction in Jemez.  The dismissing court  documents also show mistakes made by the 13th District Court prosecutors in pursuing the August 2014 indictment of Harger.   Before being charged in the rape case, Harger had a role in a web of at least three law enforcement scandals, earning him a spot  as a darling among anti-federal government groups who say the federal government is targeting him for participating in a  meeting of sheriff’s who vow to strictly follow the federal constitution and who oppose federal overreach.  Harger was charged  with criminal sexual contact and penetration, kidnapping and extortion, but little detail was initially released about what  prompted the charges.  But details of the night were made public in court filing by Harger’s defense attorneys Ray Twohig and  Lisa Torraco.  They show prosecutors allege Harger was using a confidential drug informant who told him a vehicle heading into  his village of Jemez had heroin in it.  Harger and one other officer stopped the vehicle after they said it was speeding and brought  all four occupants out at gunpoint. The documents say Harger eventually found a very small amount of heroin in the vehicle.  A  woman in the vehicle later told investigators that Harger said because there were no female officers on the Jemez force available,  he would have to search her.  He took her into the Jemez police office, had her privately strip down in the bathroom, cough  several times and then redress.  He then looked for items on the bathroom floor before returning her to the scene of the arrest. https://www.abqjournal.com/651228/details-emerge-in-police-chief-rape-case.html  2014 Publius Forum - New Mexico 2014/03/30 New Mexico Police Chief Fired Likely Because He Attended Constitutional Rights Gathering. By Warner Todd Huston. http://www.publiusforum.com/2014/03/30/new-mexico-police-chief-fired-likely-attended- constitutional- Excerpt: Chief Harger attended the  Las Vegas gathering of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) to hear what the group had to say  about its goals. Harger says he’d never attended such an event in the past and until the Vegas event was not a member of the  group.  On the way to the CSPOA event, though, the chief suddenly found that his name had been placed on some sort of  watchlist by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and he was harassed by TSA agents as he tried to board his plane. Harger reported that when he got to the airport a man who briefly flashed a badge and claimed to be a “federal agent” (from  what agency he would not say) informed the police chief that he was a “person of interest” and that he had to be detained.  http://www.publiusforum.com/category/states/new-mexico/  KOAT 2014/02/03   Double-identity police chief will keep job Performance plan discussed at village meeting https://www.koat.com/article/double-identity-police-chief-will-keep-job/5054013 Santa Fe New Mexican 2014/08/09 Ex-Police Chief accused of rape faced misconduct allegations.
