An independent investigation has apparently cleared a San Miguel County Sheriff's deputy of criminal conduct in a case in which an accused felon went months without being found after an arrest warrant had been issued.

No charges have been recommended or filed against San Miguel deputy Eric Esquibel after an internal Sheriff's Office investigation, an independent investigation by New Mexico State Police and a review by the district attorney in another county.
