Judge Emilio Chavez of Raton, NM; ethical misfit


The state of Louisiana presented Emilio Jacob Chavez a law license in 2004.


The New Mexico Judicial Standards Commission found Emilio guilty of the following misconduct all of which took place while he was employed as an Assistant Taos County District Attorney.


In July 2015, Gov. Susana Martinez was duped into appointing Emilio as an Eight Judicial District Court judge. Emilio didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney in the area. He received it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


In one matter, Emilio found it acceptable to issue subpoenas prior to an indictment being handed down. Emilio so acted despite his knowledge that such conduct was not permitted.


His punishment for such conduct was to be elevated to the position of a District Judge. What an unmitigated joke!


All that’s left now is to see what punishment is meted out to Emilio by the apologists for Judicial Misfits sitting on the New Mexico Supreme Court.


As we speak (August 2015) Emilio continues to sit as a District Court Judge in Raton, New Mexico.
