Legendre said the department is researching programs in other states. https://www.kob.com/albuquerque-news/abq-4ward-point-system-determines-whether-youthful-offenders-are-locked- up/5625128/ LeHocky, Andrew (1990s) Albuquerque. Officer. Albuq. POlice Dept. There are a strange number of cases associated with this man probably need to be double-checked.   From Real Crimes: APD Officer “sicced his 80-pound attack dog on a homeless woman who was asleep at the time.  This was the same Andrew LeHocky who had just been named “Officer of the Month.”  (01/29/1992:) “APD Officer Andrew Lehocky was sued for violating the civil rights of Kenneth Wayne Tortolita. Although no further information regarding this case is available, the case was settled for an undisclosed sum of money on 09/10/1992. “ …05/13/1992: APD Officer Andrew Lehocky was sued when his police dog attacked Sheldon Waddles, a peaceful demonstrator at a rally (and the son of a local fire chief). The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed sum of money…”03/27/1996: APD Officer Andrew Lehocky was sued for allowing or ordering an attack dog to bite and maul Isaac Ortiz. As with the two previous suits, this lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed sum of money.”… “02/26/1999: APD Officer Andrew Lehocky released his police dog, Bart, on an unarmed teenager, Moriah Smith, who was hiding in a school yard after a boy she met at a party fired a gun and frightened her. Bart was supposedly sent in to locate Moriah and “guard and bark” to let Officers know where she was hiding. Instead, Bart ran into the schoolyard, located Moriah and immediately attacked her. Bart never bothered—or was ordered not—to bark. The attack left Moriah with four deep wounds that required three surgeries and a skin graft. Lehocky stated his supervisor, Sgt. Tom Garduno, told him, "Good job. I'm glad nobody died." A federal jury subsequently found Lehocky liable for the Moriah Smith attack. Lehocky was ordered to pay the $50,000 necessary to partially remove scars. Lehocky contended that Moriah must be a “bad” girl because his dog, Bart, would only bite “bad” people.

Deputy Cody Lattin refused to be interviewed and Sheriff James Lujan did not order him to consent to an interview. Lopez, Stephanie Albuquerque. Excerpt from Washington Post:  One particularly poignant example concerns the city’s police union. In 2012, TV reporter Christina Rodda filed a lawsuit against the city and against Officer Stephanie Lopez. According to Rodda’s lawsuit, she was covering a rave at a club called Tumbleweeds when she caught Lopez on tape getting rough with a teenager. Lopez then demanded that Rodda hand over the tape. Rodda initially objected. Lopez then confiscated the entire camera. If she had taken the camera because the video was evidence of some kind, she should have tagged the camera and taken it to the police station. Instead, according to Rodda’s lawsuit, Lopez took the camera home. Three days later, the camera was returned to Rodda’s employer, KOB. The incriminating video had been deleted. Rodda was able to recover the file with the assistance of a specialist. Lopez then had Rodda arrested. The charge — “criminal trespass” — was summarily dismissed by a judge.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-watch/wp/2014/04/14/albuquerques-long-history-of-police-abuse- cover-up-and-scandal/?utm_term=.64fe519d7302 Lucero, Edward 06/11/2002:  Santa Rosa.  NOT OFFICER, but had personal and family relationships to nephew Officer Justin Anaya and best friend Officer Joe Martinez. From Real Crimes: “6/11/02: TROY PINO SUSPICIOUS DEATH (Santa Rosa PD)Troy died four days after a brutal assault by his girlfriend’s ex-husband, Edward Lucero.  Witnesses reported that the 260-pound Lucero knocked Troy to the floor, beat him with his fists and kicked him repeatedly with steel-tipped shoes.  The first officer at the scene was Lucero’s nephew, Officer Justin Anaya…. The supervising officer, Officer Joe E. Martinez, who arrived slightly after that, was Lucero’s best friend.  He terminated the assault by physically restraining Lucero.  No arrests were made and no charges filed.  No medical attention was sought for Troy.  Although there were seven other witnesses, police made no mention of Lucero’s assault in their reports. The following day, Officer Martinez forced Troy out of his girlfriend's car as they prepared to drive to Las Vegas, New Mexico. Martinez followed Troy for several hours. Troy went to a friend's house where he fell ill from the beating and was transported to the hospital in Santa Rosa. He was airlifted to UNMH where he died. http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm Lujan, Damian Lytle, John  Belen.  (2014) (2015) Justice dot gov (2015/06/23) Former Belen police department detective sentenced using excessive force against arrestee https://www.justice.gov/usao-nm/pr/former-belen-police-department-detective-sentenced-using-excessive-force- against-arrestee Excerpt: During his guilty plea in April 2014, Lytle admitted that on March 15, 2012, while working in his capacity as a Belen Police Department detective, he repeatedly struck the victim, identified by the initials R.A., who was handcuffed and compliant during the entire course of the investigative stop.  Lytle further admitted that, at one point during the stop, he pulled the handcuffed victim from the back of a police squad car, threw him to the ground, and struck him again.  The victim suffered injuries to his face and torso as a result of Lytle’s assault. https://www.justice.gov/usao-nm/pr/former-belen-police-department-detective-sentenced-using-excessive-force- against-arrestee KRQE (2014/10/20) By Tina Jensen Excerpt: Lytle admits, while the young man was handcuffed, he hit him on the head with his open hand, threw him on the ground and kicked dirt on him, saying, “If I see you break into my house again, I will bury you.”  Lytle pleaded guilty in April and faces up to 10 years in prison.  http://krqe.com/2014/10/20/former-cop-asks-for-probation-in-assault-case Updates: 2020/02/11  Lee Lopez retirement and link to Grossetete case added; John Lytle 2015 arrest for excessive force added; 2019/06/06 Lampiris-Tremba articles added incl KRQE-2016/01/12; ; 01/23/2018 Montoya, Shawn VEG/SPRNGR (FEL) added; 01/07/2018 Montoya, Pete RNCH acquittal info in Albq Jrnl 2003/11/12; McClaskey, Skyler several articles added, spelling correction first name; McCormick,James ART/CARLS info from several articles on area drug issues,  drug bust, retaliation/assassination plot against cops; 01/06/2018 McCoy, Terry (FMN) several articles added;  McCracken, Mark deceased status, obituary added; Page started as L to N ; (Najar, Gilbert-02/21/2017); updates (Lytle, John - updated 02/20/2017); updates_11/05/2017 Malone, Casey/Farmington.
