The Santa Fe District Attorney’s office has dropped its domestic violence case against Kevin Trujillo, a jailor at the Los Alamos Police Department.
Marc Edwards, Trujillo’s attorney, said the decision came after a lengthy interview with the victim in the case.
“I can’t speak for the DA’s office, but the notice to me that it wasn’t going to prosecuted came after a lengthy interview with the alleged victim,” Edwards said.
The assistant district attorney in charge of reviewing the case, Michael Nunez, said there were two reasons why they decided not to pursue the case.
“Based on the facts, evidence, further investigation and the fact that the victim did not wish us to proceed, we believe this was not a case we could successfully prosecute,” Nunez said.
Trujillo was charged with aggravated battery (deadly weapon, third-degree felony) upon a household member last year in August in Rio Arriba County Magistrate Court.
