New Mexico State Police Officer Keith Salazar and former San Juan County Sheriff’s Deputy Levi Countryman were feeding information to a drug cartel.“To keep the cartels safe, they told them what the task force was doing on a daily basis,” Christesen said. “Every time an informant was developed, they passed that information on. Every time a search warrant was obtained, they passed that information on.”In essence, the cartels knew everything law enforcement was doing, he said.  All three of those men are now serving time in prison. But Christesen knows there are more crooked cops in bed with the cartels. http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2011/05/cartel-violence-cash-infiltrating-us.html SHANE UTLEY ISSUE Farmington Daily Times (2015/11/08) Academy Revokes Former Captain’s Certification http://www.daily-times.com/story/news/local/four-corners/2015/11/08/academy-revokes-former-captains- certification/75235774 Excerpt from Farmington Daily Times.  By Dan Schwartz (11/08/2015):  Utley, who worked in law enforcement for 25 years before retiring last year, did not return a phone call seeking comment for this story.  “It’s unfortunate that he worked that long in law enforcement and ended up this way, but this says a lot about character,” San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen said.  San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen (photo is in article) Utley and three other former employees of the Sheriff’s Office filed a lawsuit last year against Christesen claiming he retaliated against them with unjust demotions and work-place harassment because they wouldn’t support his re-election campaign. 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.

Every time Christesen got close to persuading someone to talk or testify in a drug- related case, the inquiry would fall apart. A parade of witnesses who had agreed to testify would suddenly change their minds. One potential witness in a drug case against Josh Tarango, Danny's younger brother, refused to testify in 2006 after her daughter's car was burned on her front lawn. "Every time we got close to tying Tarango to Countryman," Christesen recalls, "an informant would be burned"—intimidated, that is. "I began to think that our own building was bugged. I even asked the FBI to do a sweep." Tired of waiting for federal help, "we finally bought old equipment and did it ourselves." The sweep turned up nothing. Meanwhile, violence in San Juan County kept escalating, much of it apparently tied to Danny Tarango. http://www.judithmiller.com/6482/mexicanization-american-law-enforcement KOAT (2018/01/14) New Mexico Sheriff puts controversial post on social media 2018/01/14--http://www.koat.com/article/new-mexico-sheriff-puts-controversial-post-on-social- media/15160717 Scribd Complaint against San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen https://www.scribd.com/document/220210798/Complaint-against-San-Juan-County-Sheriff-Ken-Christesen Christesen, Zack   Farmington.  Officer.  Resigned 2019 over incident involving his rough treatment of 11 year old black girl at Mesa View Middle School.

Contreras, shown here in a cellphone video secretly recorded by a young woman working at a Dexter convenience store, has avoided jail time for harassing women in Dexter while on duty. Contreras agreed to a plea agreement Wednesday in which charges of battery and stalking will be dismissed, if he successfully completes one year of unsupervised [auth] probation. He also agreed to surrender his law enforcement certifiation in New Mexico. (Toby Martinez Screenshot) After appealing his convictions to district court, former Dexter police chief accepted a plea agreement Wednesday that will keep him out of jail, while ensuring that he never is employed by law enforcement again within the state of New Mexico. Mario R. Contreras accepted a plea agreement in district court Wednesday, without admitting guilt. He entered an Alford plea to one petty misdemeanor count of battery and one misdemeanor count of stalking, of which Contreras was found guilty of in May after a trial in magistrate court. An Alford plea is a guilty plea in criminal court, whereby a defendant asserts his innocence, but admits the evidence would likely persuade a judge or jury to find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
