You know the easiest way for New Mexico to not have to deal with due process and lawsuits is to drop the Registry altogether!

It will save the state money and free up resources to go after real criminals.

Everybody wins!

I would even question the legality of what seems to be New Mexico’s law to have a hearing to determine if registration is required. That would be like being retried and punished again for a crime committed in another jurisdiction.

Recently, Wisconsin has shipped an infamous kidnapper to New Mexico to serve his life sentence. He’d shot a girls two parents to death in their own home and kept their young daughter in a family cabin. Y’all know the case. Yes he’s incarcerated but technically he resides in NM. That being said that fact is a collateral truth. WI DOC trafficked him to NM. One less space for a NM offender. I wonder if he’s listed on NM registry given habeas corpus is NM?
