Prostitution ring case to go to high court 

 

SANTA FE (AP) — The New Mexico Supreme Court is taking up a case involving two aging professors accused of helping run an online prostitution ring.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the state’s highest court will hear arguments Feb. 6 after prosecutors appealed a lower court’s ruling that the website was legal.

In June, a state judge ruled that the website “Southwest Companions” linked to former University of New Mexico president F. Chris Garcia and retired Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor David C. Flory violated no laws. That ruling complicated the case for prosecutors, who were planning to present their case to a grand jury.

Garcia and Flory were arrested by Albuquerque police in June 2011 on charges of promoting prostitution.

 

Police say smartphones spread word on DUI stops 

 

ALBQUERQUE — Albuquerque police say some motorists -- including some planning to drive drunk — now use their smartphones to avoid sobriety checkpoints.

Officer Robert Gibbs says smartphone applications, texting and social media are being used to spread word of where checkpoints are located.
