In early October, the county settled the lawsuit for $500,000.  Sheriff’s Office Capt. Brice Current, former Undersheriff Ron Anderson, the Sheriff’s Office, the county and its commissioners were also defendants. Lisa Haws, Matt Wilcox and Utley’s wife, Beth Utley, were the other plaintiffs.  The lawsuit claimed the accusations against Shane Utley were “bogus” and “nothing more than retaliation.” But Christesen says the academy determined Shane Utley is deceptive and lied.  Christesen described the lawsuit as a political torpedo aimed at his 2014 reelection campaign. He said the half-million-dollar settlement, a business decision by the county’s insurance company, has no bearing on accuracy of the claims made against him in the lawsuit.  “Everything we do is based on integrity,” he said. http://www.daily-times.com/story/news/local/four-corners/2015/11/08/academy-revokes-former-captains- certification/75235774 (2015/10/07) Lawsuit against Christesen:  County Pays $500K Settlement.

By Dan Schwartz https://www.abqjournal.com/636929/state-law-enforcement-academy-finds-former-sheriffs-office-captain- lied.html Excerpt: FARMINGTON — A New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy official has determined that a former San Juan County Sheriff’s Office captain lied in investigations of his alleged use of department-issued ammunition in a trade for an off-road motorcycle.  The ammunition — four boxes of Black Hills .223 match grade bullets and 50 rounds of Federal 12-gauge buckshot — was valued at between $180 and $250, according to the records. The ammunition boxes were also stamped with an identification number that matched rounds kept in the Sheriff’s Office SWAT truck, according to the records.  Utley testified in the hearing that he didn’t know the ammunition belonged to the Sheriff’s Office and that Capt. Brice Current  had given it to him, according to the records.  But Hearing Officer Peter Camacho stated in the records that Utley “knew or should have known”the ammunition belonged to the Sheriff’s Office.  Current also denies he  gave Utley the ammunition, according to the records.  Current, former-Undersheriff Ron Anderson, the sheriff’s office, and the county and its board of commissioners are also named as defendants in the lawsuit against Christesen.  https://www.abqjournal.com/636929/state-law-enforcement-academy-finds-former-sheriffs-office-captain- lied.html INFORMATIONAL ONLY - Beth Utley mentioned in articles See also Beth Utley, Sheriff’s spokesperson and Shane Utley’s wife, found mentioned here Navajo Times http://www.navajotimes.com/news/2011/0411/041411beating.php Albuquerque Journal https://www.abqjournal.com/59499/farmington-police-sergeant-accused-of-rape.html Ninja Cops http://site.ninjacops.com/blog/tag/sheriffs-spokeswoman-beth-utley/ Wallace, Edmund     Hobbs, Sheriff Deputy     Wallace Marianne     Albuquerque, Victim Arquette  Warman, Brandt - Taos.  Sergeant.  Santa Fe New Mexican: (2016/01/11) Fired Taos sergeant argues discipline for police misconduct has been inconsistent http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/fired-taos-sergeant-argues-discipline-for-police-misconduct- has-been/article_e2ae00c4-7ffd-5591-839f-5ad40502c8f8.html Excerpt: And though another officer, Brandt Warman, was disciplined in the confrontation that led to charges against Davis, the lawyer representing her argued the officer’s treatment belied disparate treatment of misconduct allegations.  Testifying during the hearing’s first day, Warman seemed to agree. http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/fired-taos-sergeant-argues-discipline-for-police-misconduct- has-been/article_e2ae00c4-7ffd-5591-839f-5ad40502c8f8.html Police One Video:  Officer misconduct internal affairs: confrontation erupts after suspect threatens NM cops kids. https://www.policeone.com/officer-misconduct-internal-affairs/articles/8690638-Video-Confrontation-erupts-after- suspect-threatens-NM-cops-kids/ Excerpt:  “If I have to come back here one more time tonight, you’re going to [expletive] jail,” Warman tells him. “You think I’m not connected?” Olonia responds.  Officers ask if Olonia if he’s threatening them, because Olonia previously suggested he was a part of the Mexican mafia. Another argument ensues, and Olonia tells Warman he will see him “personally.”  At one point, Olonia also threatened the officer’s children, according to KOAT.  Warman then rushes Olonia while other officers attempt to separate the two men. Olonia is then forced to the ground in the ensuing struggle. Olonia was arrested and taken to a hospital for examination. He was charged with assault, assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. No injuries were reported, and all charges against him were later dropped. Olonia has a long history of violence, including several counts of battery on law enforcement, according to the report Olonia reportedly plans on filing a civil complaint.

Amarillo dot com (2000/8/22) By Janet Bresenham Excerpt from Amarillo dot com 08/22/2000 By Janet Bresenham:  Former Hobbs officer charged with sexual abuse CLOVIS, N.M. - A former Hobbs Police Department officer charged with sexually abusing his young stepdaughter and stepson was arrested Monday morning after he turned himself in to Lea County authorities, 9th Judicial District Attorney Randall Harris said. Harris has been appointed special prosecutor in the case against Dusty Wilson, 26, who is charged in Lea County with six first-degree felony counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor.Wilson's stepdaughter was 3 years old and his stepson was 5 years old at the time of the alleged abuse, Harris said.If convicted, Wilson could face up to 144 years in state prison because each charge carries a maximum penalty of 24 years' imprisonment under New Mexico law, Harris said. http://amarillo.com/stories/082200/new_hobbs.shtml#.WhwnV0qnGxk Wilson, Oliver  (11/7/2013) Santa Fe, New Mexico State Police Officer.  Shot/Killed Jeanette Anaya; a questionable person was in the car with her - a person of interest in a homicide case. Articles US GUN VIOLENCE (2013/11/0) Killed Jeanette Anaya. 2013/11/07--https://usgunviolence.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/killed-jeanette-anaya-santa-fe-nm/ From Us Gun Violence: Questionable traffic stop; high speed chase; emotional cop fired several rounds, two of which hit and one or both killed her; she apparently did not stop because she had a warrant out  for a minor misdemeanor involving concealed identity; she had cocaine in her bloodstream: :“District Attorney Angela “Spence” Pacheco said based on video recorded by a dashboard camera in Wilson’s car, Anaya hadn’t committed any traffic violation…Teresa Anaya said her daughter was murdered and the State Police officer who fired the fatal shots in the high-profile case was “enraged” and had “lost control.” Muñoz also said he didn’t think Anaya had committed any violations before the chase began. Excerpt from NM In Depth- 2016/03/23-by Jeff Proctor: There’s no question that Jeanette broke several laws that night. Yet her family says the system fell down. Wilson “needed to be held accountable for what he did,” says Teresa.  Asked about Teresa’s criticism of the process used to clear Wilson, Pacheco pauses for several moments.  “I can understand her feeling that [the grand jury presentation] wasn’t a fair representation of what occurred,” she says. “There is not an efficient or good process in the state of New Mexico to deal with police shootings.”  Excerpt from Santa Fe New Mexican 2014/04/08-by Phaedra Haywood: Anaya’s family has filed a tort claim notice, advising the state that she is prepared to file a civil suit over her daughter’s death. Her attorney said the family might also pursue a lawsuit in federal court, alleging violations of Jeanette Anaya’s civil rights.  But right now, they want “justice.” For Teresa Anaya, justice means criminal charges for Officer Wilson for fatally shooting her daughter and changes to a system that allows the New Mexico State Police, rather than an outside agency, to investigate its own officer-involved shootings. She said justice also means more and better officer training on the use of force and more rigorous screening for police officers.  “Police officers should be subject to the same laws as the rest of us,” she said, “whether they hold a gun and a badge or not.” 2013/11/07--https://usgunviolence.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/killed-jeanette-anaya-santa-fe-nm/ KOAT (2014/04/30) Friend [Jeremy Munoz] of Jeanette Anaya a cop murdered her: Jury Finds Shooting justified.

Jeanette didn't stop. Instead, she led Wilson on a chase across surface streets and through residential Santa Fe. The pursuit ended when Jeanette slowed down, and Wilson used his police car to spin her silver Honda Accord around. Then, Wilson got out and fired 16 shots at Jeanette's car. One of the bullets went through the side of Jeanette's head; another struck the top of her back. Wilson's story about the shooting didn't completely square with a video captured on the dashboard camera of his patrol car, or with the version of events described by the passenger in Jeanette's car. https://www.sfreporter.com/news/coverstories/2016/03/22/puff-of-smoke/ Other Links 2016/03/23--http://nmindepth.com/2016/03/23/puff-of-smoke-justice-system-designed-to-clear-cop-who-killed-jeanette- anaya/ Wiseman, Gary (New)   Rio Rancho   Rio Rancho PD   Deputy Police Chief   2017-Filed a Whistleblower Lawsuit against Interim Chief Woolever, Robert     Albuquerque.  APD.  Fired with another officer over a beating of Nicholas Blume.  Suspect/victim Nicholas Blume.  See also John Doyle.
