Mora County Sheriff Thomas Garza resigned Thursday as part of a plea agreement that resolves the felony charges he had been facing.
For Garza, the plea agreement marks the end of his law enforcement career because the agreement also requires him to surrender his certification as a sworn law enforcement officer.
But in exchange, Garza is all but guaranteed no jail time and even received a deferred sentence, which means that if he stays out of trouble the conviction won’t remain on his record.
