On 01/12/2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:
Dear Ma'am or Sir:
I would like to submit an IPRA request for any and all police reports relating to an alleged sexual assault which was believed to have occurred on or about August 29, 2016, at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School. The alleged victim's name is Adriana Castillo. If your agency does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does, and please include the proper custodian's name and address.
These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). We cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.
These records will no longer be exempt from disclosure when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
