 SANTA FE – A Los Alamos man faces new allegations of burglary and battery, and as a result was called in front of a district court judge Thursday to face a charge that he violated probation for previous incidents of residential burglary
An attorney for John Craven 35, said he was arrested on a football field in early October, surrounded by young players.
“He has an alibi,” said his public defense attorney, Jennifer Burrill.
Craven had pleaded no contest to a pair of third-degree felony counts in 2015, following allegations that he had repeatedly burglarized a neighbor’s house. At sentencing in 2015, he received three years supervised probation and treatment for drug addiction.
On Thursday, Craven’s attorney said he would deny the most recent allegation.
“He was coaching football at the time of the incident; the field was filed with young kids,” Burrill said.
Assistant District Attorney Kent Wahlquist said the latest allegation is that he was seen breaking into lockers at a spa. According to the allegation, he ran as he was chased by spa employees.
“He ran, they chased him, and he ran again,” Wahlquist said.
District Judge Mary L. Marlowe Sommer said Craven would remain in jail for the time being.
