CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico judge accused of bad behavior will never be a judge in New Mexico again.
The state’s judicial standards commission filed a petition in October asking for Eddy County Magistrate Judge Henry Castaneda to be removed.
The 51-page petition outlined offensive material found in Castaneda’s email, including sexist, racist and lewd jokes.
The New Mexico Supreme Court on Monday accepted a request to permanently remove him from office.
It also ordered Castaneda to never run for or hold any New Mexico judicial office in the future.
Castaneda resigned earlier this month.
