“The defendant was entering an area knowing that area was restricted to the public, and he entered it anyway,” prosecutor Janani Iyengar said…

New Mexico county official convicted of January 6 trespassing refuses to certify 2022 primary results based on debunked conspiracy https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/16/politics/new-mexico-otero-county-election/index.html
Couy Griffin has been an outspoken backer of former President Donald Trump, and he and the other Otero commissioners earlier this year authorized a third-party review of the county’s 2020 election results. It included an “audit force” of volunteers going door to door to question voters. Trump won the county by more than 25 points in 2020.
The State Supreme Court on Wednesday, acting on an emergency request from New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, a Democrat, ordered the Otero County commissioners to certify the primary results by Friday — the statutory deadline for county certification. The commissioners had declined to do so earlier in the week, citing distrust of Dominion voting machines.
The commission has added a Friday emergency meeting to take up the certification.
Griffin, a founder for Cowboys for Trump, was found guilty in a March bench trial of trespassing on US Capitol grounds on January 6, 2021, while then-Vice President Mike Pence was there. He is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Washington.

Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin was in court Aug. 15 and Aug. 16 for a bench trial which would determine if he is removed from office due to his participation in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riots.
The bench trial ended Aug. 16 with final arguments to be submitted to New Mexico 1st Judicial District Court by Aug. 29. Judge Francis J. Mathew, who presided over the bench trial, is expected to deliver a ruling within 10 days of receiving the closing arguments.
The suit is a quo warranto complaint to remove Griffin from office filed by Marco White on Santa Fe County, Mark Mitchell of Los Alamos County and Leslie Lakind of Santa Fe County. https://www.alamogordonews.com/story/news/2022/08/17/bench-trial-ends-in-couy-griffin-removal-case/65404750007/
A judge in New Mexico declared Tuesday that the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was an “insurrection” as he ruled that Otero County Commissioner and “Cowboys for Trump” founder Couy Griffin must be removed from office for participating in the attack.
Griffin is barred for life from holding any federal or state office — including his current role as county commissioner, from which he will be ousted “effective immediately,” Judge Francis Mathew ruled.
Griffin became “constitutionally disqualified” from those positions as of Jan. 6, 2021, the judge concluded.
That section, known as the Disqualification Clause, bars any person from holding civil or military office at the federal or state level of the United States if they “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
