Archuleta Receives Up to 15 Years for Burglary and Assault of Local Woman
A Third District Court judge gave a prison sentence of up to 15 years to a defendant who barged into the home of long-time county resident Nadine Gilmore, stole more than a million dollars' worth of valuables and cash, and assaulted Mrs. Gilmore in January 2016.
Gilmore and her relatives say she was physically and emotionally shaken by the actions of 40-year-old Ricky Joseph Archuleta. But supporters of the defendant say he had been dealing with mental issues, substance abuse problems, and a devastating death in his family. Rick Brough has more.
