Court orders ex-LA doctor off GPS monitoring

Crime> Mourachov lives in Colorado

By Tris DeRoma

Pavel Mourachov, the former Los Alamos doctor who pled guilty to assault and cruelty to animals nine months ago, is now off GPS monitoring.
In magistrate court Tuesday, his attorney, Elden Pennington and Assistant DA Kent Wahlquist agreed Mourachov has done much to improve his life and attitude since the day police arrested him leaving the Los Alamos Medical Center.
Pennington also said that since Mourachov has lost his medical license as a result of his crimes the cost of his GPS monitoring has been a financial hardship.
“It’s about 15 percent of his income,” Pennington told Magistrate Court Judge Pat Casados.
According to Pennington, Mourachov has also managed to stay out of trouble for the past nine months, and is presently living in Colorado. As part of his probation, he regularly comes back to see his doctor in Santa Fe for mental health evaluations.
“He hasn’t had any contact or incidents with police in Colorado either,” Pennington told the judge.
Though Mourachov will no longer be on GPS, Mourachov still has to obey all the other conditions of his probation, which includes staying in regular contact with his probation officer, Linda Pena.
