Several things struck us this week. Let’s run them down.
The decision by the District Attorney’s Office to decline to prosecute a man charged with eight felony sex crimes involving a female child younger than 13 is just stunning.
We have had complaints about our D.A. for some time and he surely has not been in the forefront of prosecuting crimes in Los Alamos.
But this is almost too much to endure. A person charged by police with four counts of criminal sexual penetration with a minor under the age of 13, as well as being charged with four counts of criminal sexual contact with a minor under the age of 13, each of which are second-degree felonies, being deemed unworthy of prosecution is simply insulting to the people who live here.
Det. Shari Mills comment that, “This is a disappointing situation,” may rank as the understatement of the century.
We have high hopes for Attorney Spence Pacheco who appears to be in line to be the new district attorney.
The county’s decision to appeal a summary judgment concerning a contract the county has with firefighters volunteering for Paramedic School is probably a good idea. This matter needs to be settled.
