Suspects Plead Guilty in Arson of NAF Member Clinic

Last week, two men pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit arson in connection with the December 2007 arson of the office of NAF Member Curtis Boyd, MD, in Albuquerque, NM. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the attack, but considerable damage was caused by the fire. Law enforcement conducted a swift investigation, and quickly apprehended the two suspects. In February 2008, the New Mexico House of Representatives passed a unanimous resolution commending federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies on their collaboration, investigation, and quick response in arresting these two suspects.

These charges carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. As part of their plea agreement, one suspect’s sentence will be capped at 44 months and the other’s at 40 months. A sentencing date has not been set.
