Robinson pleads to two counts
Gonzales pleads to possession, driving on suspended D.L.
by C.F. David
Matt Robinson, on Thursday, pleaded guilty to two counts of concealing stolen property. The charges are derived from an investigation into the theft of at least 14 Black Angus calves, and their sale through the Clayton, N.M. Sale Ring.
The investigation began in late February, 2006 with a call from New Mexico Brand Inspector, Joel Gilbert, and continued into March.
The court records of June 15 allege that Robinson, 23, knowingly concealed baby calves stolen from Cimarron County rancher Jim Ferguson. The charges continue that Robinson had reason to know or believe that the calves had been stolen.
Punishment for each count could be as much as five years imprisonment, and fines of up to $500 each.
Robinson, who has been released on a personal recognizance bond will next appear in court on Nov. 2, for sentencing.
Gonzales pleads to two charges
Rudy Gonzales, 41, pleaded on Thursday to charges of possession of marijuana, and of driving on a suspended New Mexico driver's license.
He received a sentence of five years with all but 10 days suspended, and a fine of $10 thousand with $9 thousand suspended. The suspensions are contingent with Gonzales' successful completion of his probation.
