Drug offenders get probation

Courts > ‘Operation Genesis’ defendants plead guilty to charges

By Tris DeRoma

Several suspects connected to a highly publicized drug sweep that took place in January were sentenced Wednesday in Los Alamos District Court.
Though none of those sentenced received jail time — which was included in their sentence, but most were placed in custody and held for varying lengths of time when initially arrested — for the drug trafficking offenses they committed, each received lengthy probation sentences.
Those appearing in district court were nabbed during the Los Alamos Police Department’s “Operation Genesis,” which netted nine suspects.
Suspects sentenced in court Wednesday included Sarah Orr, Nicholas Hagermann and Brendon Brown.
Hagermann, who was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (a second degree felony), pled guilty in court. For pleading guilty, Hagermann gives up his right to a trial.
In exchange, he will receive five years of supervised probation with drug court.
Santa Fe resident Trevon Yates, 21, was also sentenced Wednesday in connection with an attempted heroin deal he tried to carry out in Los Alamos a few weeks after police concluded “Operation Genesis.” He received five years of supervised probation and drug court.
Yates agreed to plead guilty to trafficking in a controlled substance (heroin) and give up his right to a trial.
