  • Geisik, Abney plead not guilty in District Court

    Both accused child rapist Stephen Geisik and alleged child abuser Tyrell Abney both pled not guilty in their first appearance in District Court Wednesday.

    Abney, 20, is charged with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm – a first-degree felony.

    Both cases were bound over from Los Alamos Magistrate Court to District Court earlier this month.

    Both defendants waived hearing the indictments against them.

  • When public emails go private

    Last week, Gov. Susana Martinez issued an edict declaring, henceforth, members of her administration would no longer use their private email systems to transact official business of the state.
     Martinez reportedly said even she would abide by her new directive.
    The day following Martinez’s directive, news broke that her former corrections secretary, Lupe Martinez, had given an affidavit stipulating that the governor’s chief of staff actually instructed that private emails be used to circumvent requests for public records.

  • High court upholds key part of Obama health law--Video Extra

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama’s historic health care overhaul.
    The decision means the huge overhaul, still only partly in effect, will proceed and pick up momentum over the next several years, affecting the way that countless Americans receive and pay for their personal medical care. The ruling seemingly hands Obama a campaign-season victory in rejecting arguments that Congress went too far in requiring most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty.
