Courts > Nasise gets suspended jail sentence, 1-1/2 years of probation

By Tris DeRoma

A Los Alamos man accused of starting a brawl in February with two Los Alamos police officers inside a Comfort Inn hotel room was sentenced in district court recently.
According to police reports, Samuel Nasise and a woman named Rebecca Meagan Redondo fought with the officers, a struggle that culminated in Redondo pulling at the items on the officers’ utility belts, and Nasise punching one of the officers in the face, according to court documents.
Nasise was charged with two counts of battery upon a police officer, two counts of resisting, evading or obstructing a police officer and one count of disorderly conduct.
Redondo was sentenced in May for her part in the melee. Though she received the same charges, all of them were dismissed except one count of resisting, evading or obstructing an officer. Redondo was given a deferred sentence.
If she completes her 365 days of probation without incident, the charge will be dismissed, though a record of the charge will still exist.
In a plea agreement worked out between Assistant District Attorney Kent Wahlquist and Nasise’s attorney, Tyr Loranger, Nasise was charged with just one count of battery upon a police officer.
