New Mexico Sex Offenders

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - New Mexico  governor Susana Martinez and attorney general Gary King may ask the legislature to clarify registration  requirements for out-of-state sex offenders who move to New Mexico.


The state supreme court ruled last week that a Las cruces man could withdraw his guilty plea for not registering after moving to New Mexico. 

The court said there wasn't enough evidence to show the man's sex offense in California was the same as a New Mexico sex crime. 

The man was required to register as a sex offender in California.

Spokesmen for Martinez and King say their offices will consider legislation to deal with issues raised by the court.
