Wife of Officer Webster speaks at repeat offender’s hearing

Webster and wife

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – On Tuesday, Bernalillo County Deputy Michelle Carlino-Webster spoke out at a sentencing hearing for a repeat offender. It is a case close to her heart because a different repeat offender is accused of killing her husband.

Last year, Alejandro Valdez stole a car in the South Valley and opened fire on deputies, including Carlino-Webster.

At least one deputy shot back, hitting him in the shoulder. No deputies were hurt.

At Tuesday’s hearing, Carlino-Webster asked the judge for a tough sentence.

She talked about how she lost her husband to a dangerous criminal like Valdez.

“You need to understand this is not acceptable behavior and we ask you, your honor, to know that and to take into strong consideration the magnitude this case holds given all of the violence against law enforcement this past year alone, including now the murder of four police officers in the state of NM, including my husband, all by repeat violent offenders,” said Carlino-Wesbter.

The judge agreed and sentenced Valdez to 29.5 years in prison.
