Santa Fe, NM---Today, Attorney General announced that he will immediately appeal a Court of Appeals ruling that allowed a new trial to Joseph Apodaca, who was convicted of two counts of first-degree criminal sexual penetration and one count of tampering with evidence for a brutal sexual assault, which left the woman who survived with serious medical issues requiring multiple surgeries and causing lasting damage. On appeal, Apodaca argued that he was entitled to argue at trial that he mistook the survivor for having consented to his assault, despite New Mexico law not affording this defense. A two judge majority of the Court of Appeals decided today that Apodaca is entitled to a new trial because the jury was not instructed on his “mistake of fact” defense to establish that he believed the survivor consented to his actions.
