been appointed subsequent to this unfortunate event. With a new chief of police in place, the City of Deming has implemented new policies and procedures and is continuing to implement new polices and procedures so this type of event will never happen again.".
Foy also included a letter he wrote to the local paper, the Deming Headlight, in which he described the Eckert case as "a systemic failure."
In January 2013, Eckert was pulled over by Deming police for allegedly failing to make a complete stop in a Walmart parking lot in Deming. Hidalgo County sheriff's officers were there, too. They then took him to a hospital in Silver City in another county where Eckert was forced to undergo a colonoscopy. No drugs were found and Eckert was later charged $6,000 for the hospital bill.
"At present, the Assistant District Attorney who prepared and presented the affidavit in support of the search warrant is no longer working for the Sixth Judicial District Attorney's Office," Foy's letter said.
But after filing IPRA requests about the case, New Mexico Watchdog received documents from Deming and Hidalgo County.
Two of the three officers in Deming remain on the job, documents obtained through Inspection of Public Records Act requests reveal. One of the three officers in the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office is still working for the county.
The officers were listed in a lawsuit filed by David Eckert, a Lordsburg, resident, who, officers thought, was carrying drugs. In January, Eckert received a $1.6 million Nike Air Max 95 Phantom Wolf Grey

City attorney elaborates on Eckert case
That's a subject of debate, with a member the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government legal panel saying, "discipline is not a matter of opinion."
Furthermore, Foy pointed out the 6th Judicial District Attorney's Office signed off on a warrant to OK an anal cavity search.
Foy wrote that the Deming police "relied upon information from an out of county" police expert who said a drug sniffing canine indicated the presence of narcotics on Eckert's car seat. Plus, "this police expert" told the cops that Eckert had a history drug trafficking and "was known to carry narcotics in his anal cavity."
Officials at the Deming Police Department and the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office have refused to comment.
In addition, Foy wrote, "be advised that none of these officers were disciplined for matters involving the David Eckert case."
Foy's letter contends the incident was complicated.
An attorney for the City of Deming, Jim Foy, said in a letter to New Mexico Watchdog that Orosco and Chavez are still employed by the Deming Police Department Orosco as a captain and Chavez as a patrolman while Hernandez is not.
Hidalgo County officials would not disclose whether any of their officers were disciplined, claiming that such information doesn't have to be disclosed because "they are considered matters of opinion in personnel files."

Deming Police Officers Bobby Orosco, Robert Chavez and Maricela Hernandez were listed in the original lawsuit.
"That is a personnel matter," Deming Police Chief Brandon Gigante said.
"It was not as though Deming Police Officers grabbed Mr. Eckert and unilaterally took him to Silver City for a series of anal cavity searches," the letter reads.
