Everitt hands over evidence to the DA

Almost a half a year after having been presented with evidence of alleged felony criminal misconduct, Beth Everitt has finally decided to hand over the evidence to the DA, who's responsibility it is, to decide if criminal charges will be filed.

It is unclear from the report on KRQE, whether or not the District surrendered just the internal audit, or whether the disclosure included the results of an investigation conducted by an independent investigator. It would not come as a surprise to find out that Everitt has been less than candid and forthright in her disclosure to the DA; in order to cover the evidence trail to her desk that was uncovered by the independent investigator.

In any case, a request for public records has been filed with the District Attorney's Office. She has been asked for an opportunity to inspect and/or copy the public records surrendered by Everitt. I will continue to update you on the progress of the request.

As for the previous requests for public records made of the APS and the BCSO;

  • Everitt is still stonewalling a letter of inquiry from the NMAGO regarding these records.
  • Darren White is still stonewalling a letter of inquiry from the NMAGO regarding part of these records; the criminal misuse of BCSO computers by the leadership of the APS.
Kari Brandenburg, the District Attorney will now have her mettle tested.

We will see whether she has a respect for the law
that is apparently lacking in both the Superintendent of the APS, and the Bernalillo County Sheriff.
