New Mexico prosecutors recognized for 'excellence' in profession

Two New Mexico prosecutors are being recognized for 'outstanding excellence' in their profession in 2013.

Both Ninth Judicial District Prosecutors Brian Stover and Troy Oliver were formally honored by the New Mexico State Bar Prosecutor's Section for their contributions to Curry and Roosevelt counties.

Stover was recognized for his work in the category of "Drug" prosecution and Oliver for his excellence in the category of "Children's Court Prosecutor".

The New Mexico District Attorney's employ hundreds of prosecutors statewide, all of who were eligible to receive one of the awards.

Since 2004, 12 employees from the Ninth Judicial District Attorney's Office have been awarded by the State of New Mexico for their outstanding dedication and excellence in their profession.
