Former detective pleads guilty to more sex crimes


LAS CRUCES (KRQE) – A former Las Cruces detective has pleaded guilty to more sex crimes.

Michael Garcia, 38, admits he sexually assaulted a female relative from the time she was 11-years-old.

Garcia has already pleaded guilty to assaulting a high school student who was an intern at the department.

In 2011, Michael Garcia took the 17-year-old girl on a ride-along, then drove to a secluded area and attacked her.

Garcia faces a nine year sentence in that case. He faces 15 years in the latest case.
