THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO POLICE DEPARTMENT IS LAUNCHING A NEW WEBSITE THAT TRACKS CRIME IN AND AROUND THE UNM CAMPUS. "IT OFFERS MANY NEW TOOLS AND THINGS WE CAN DO THAT NOT ONLY THE POLICE CAN USE, BUT THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY AS WELL… "EVEN IF IT’S JUST DEALING WITH OTHER STUDENTS BOTHERING OTHERS, THE GOAL OF THE WEBSITE IS TO GET AN IDEA OF WHERE CRIME IS HAPPENING ON CAMPUS- AND FOCUSING RESOURCES THERE TO STOP IT.” TIPS CAN BE SUBMITTED ANONYMOUSLY ON THE WEBSITE. THERE IS ALSO INFORMATION ON FIRE CALLS AND AN AREA TO REGISTER BICYCLES. YOU CAN FIND INFORMATION ON THE WEBSITE ON KRQE DOT COM.UNDER KRQE LINKS.

A SEEDY UNDERWORLD.. CRACKED OPEN WITH ARRESTS... SEARCH WARRANTS.. EVEN COURT APPEARANCES. BUT THEN SUDDENLY IT ALL WENT AWAY. IT LEFT A LOT OF PEOPLE THINKING WE MIGHT NEVER KNOW WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT. THAT'S UNTIL NEWS THIRTEEN INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER LARRY BARKER GOT ON THE CASE... TONIGHT HE REVEALS THE INSIDE STORY OF A SECRET SEX RING THAT STUNNED THE STATE. .PECK: "OVER A THOUSAND MEN WERE PARTICIPANTS IN ILLEGAL SEX FOR HIRE IN ALBUQUERQUE." .DREBING: "THIS WASN'T SEX FOR HIRE IN ALBUQUERQUE." .DREBING: "THIS WASN'T JUST INVOLVING TALK ABOUT SEX. THIS WAS INVOLVING SEXUAL ACTS FOR HIRE." .PECK: "SW COMPANIONS HAD HIGHER END PROSTITUTES. ... NOT JUST ANYONE CAN AFFORD $300 FOR AN HOUR." HE IS AMONG NEW MEXICO'S MOST RESPECTED EDUCATORS IN A CAREER SPANNING 40 YEARS. DR. CHRIS GARCIA HAS BEEN A UNM PROFESSOR, VICE PRESIDENT, COLLEGE DEAN, PROVOST AND THE UNIVERSITY'S 17TH PRESIDENT. TODAY, THAT DISTINGUISHED CAREER IS IN RUINS. IN ONE FELL SWOOP CHRIS GARCIA WENT FROM THIS ... TO THIS. .GARCIA: "YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. ANY THING YOU SAY CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU IN A COURT OF LAW." DR. GARCIA'S DOWNFALL WAS HIS SECRET PARTICIPATION IN A HIGH CLASS CALL GIRL SERVICE. ITS NOT YOUR TYPICAL NORTH VALLEY MASSAGE PARLOR. YOU SEE, THESE SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS WERE PART OF A SOPHISTICATED, HIGH TECH CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE, A VIRTUAL HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION. MARK DREBING IS A BERNALILLO COUNTY DEPUTY DA. .DREBING: "YOU HAVE A WEBSITE THATS PROMOTING, ADVERTISING, SOLICITING CUSTOMERS AND PROSTITUTES." APD SGT. JASON PECK, WHO WORKS UNDERCOVER, IS ASSIGNED TO THE SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS DIVISION. .PECK: " IT WAS A BIG DEAL. SW COMPANIONS REACHED ACROSS THE COUNTRY. . THESE WOMEN ARE PROFESSIONAL PROSTITUTES WHO TRAVEL FROM CITY TO CITY AND CONDUCT SEX FOR HIRE." .BARKER: "SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS WAS NOT OPEN TO JUST ANYBODY WHO WANTED A PROSTITUTE. IT WAS OPERATED AS AN EXCLUSIVE, PASSWORD PROTECTED MEMBERS ONLY CLUB OFFERING MORE THAN A HUNDRED TOP DOLLAR CALL GIRLS." .PECK: "IT WASN'T AN OPEN WEBSITE THAT JUST ANY RANDOM PUBLIC MEMBER CAN ACCESS. . THESE WERE PEOPLE WHO WERE LOOKED INTO, BACK GROUNDED, THAT WERE CONFIRMED NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT MEMBERS THUS MAKING IT A VERY SECURE PLACE TO CONDUCT ILLEGAL ACTIVITY." .DREBING: "THIS WAS IN MY OPINION A VERY SOPHISTICATED OPERATION BECAUSE BOTH THE PROSTITUTES AND THE CUSTOMERS, THE JOHNS, REMAINED ANONYMOUS. ... THERE WASN'T AN EASY WAY THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT COULD TRACK WHO WAS ON THE WEBSITE." AMONG THE LADIES SELLING SEX ON SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS, RUSSIAN EMMA, KNOWN TO POLICE AS KONIA PRINSTER. NOW KONIA DESCRIBES HERSELF AS A SUPER MODEL AND A PHILANTHROPIST. SHE IS OFTEN PHOTOGRAPHED IN THE COMPANY OF HOLLYWOOD STARS. BUT IN NEW MEXICO, RUSSIAN EMMA IS A $300 AN HOUR CALL GIRL. SASSYGWIN DESCRIBES HERSELF AS A "COUNTRY GIRL." BUT IN THE CITY, POLICE IDENTIFY SASSY AS 36 YEAR OLD VIRGINIA MONTANO. RECORDS SHOW SASSYGWIN CHARGES AS MUCH AS $700 FOR UNSPEAKABLE SEX ACTS. SWEET SEDUCTION CALLS HERSELF A CAREER ENTERTAINER WHO LIKES TO PLAY GUITAR AND THE HARMONICA. BUT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, SWEET SEDUCTION PLAYS A DIFFERENT TUNE. DETECTIVES IDENTIFY HER AS 51 YEAR OLD DEBORAH INNIS, A $300 AN HOUR HOOKER. AN ESTIMATED 1400 MEN ACTIVELY PARTICIPATED IN THE SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS WEBSITE. .DREBING: "Q. WHO WERE THE CUSTOMERS OF SW COMPANIONS ... ? A. GENERALLY THE CUSTOMERS WERE UPSTANDING CITIZENS WITHIN THIS COMMUNITY. SOLICITING PROSTITUTES AND REMAINING ANONYMOUS." THIS ALBUQUERQUE BUSINESSMAN WAS ARRESTED FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT. IN A POLICE INTEVIEW HE DESCRIBED SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS. .SWC CUSTOMER: "SWC CREATES A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR MAN AND PROSTITUTES TO HOOK UP WITH." THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND NEW MEXICO'S ELITE CALL GIRL SERVICE WAS AN EAST COAST UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR. BY DAY, DR. DAVID FLORY TAUGHT PHYSICS AT NEW JERSEY'S FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON UNIVERSITY. ONLINE, FLORY WAS KNOWN AS DAVID 8, THE COVERT OWNER OF SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS. FLORY LIVES PART TIME IN SANTA FE. .DREBING: "HE WAS OPERATING AND OWNING THAT WEBSITE AND IT WAS CLEAR FROM HIS POSTS AS WELL AS HIS STATEMENTS IT WAS FOR THE PURPOSES OF PROSTITUTION." FLORY WAS ARRESTED IN 2011 FOR PROMOTING PROSTITUION. DURING A POLICE INTERROGATION HE DENIED BREAKING THE LAW. .FLORY: "I HARDLY THINK WHAT I AM DOING IS PROMOTING PROSTITUTION. IT'S A PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO TALK." SO WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS? .FLORY: "WELL TO PROVIDE A SAFER PLACE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO INDULGE IN ADULT ACTIVITIES WITHOUT THE DANGERS OF THE STREET. WITHOUT THE DANGERS OF THE DRUGS. WITHOUT SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT IN MY VIEW OCCUR WITH SOME OF THE UNPLEASANT SIDES OF PROSTITUTION." AND THEN THERE'S CHRIS GARCIA. JAMIE KOCH IS VICE CHAIR OF THE UNM BOARD OF REGENTS. .KOCH: "HE WAS VERY WELL LIKED, VERY WELL APPRECIATED AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAD A LOT OF ADMIRATION FOR HIM." NOBODY KNEW ABOUT CHRIS GARCIA'S SECRET LIFE. BEHIND THE CLOSED DOOR OF HIS UNM OFFICE, THE ONE TIME UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT WOULD LOG ONTO SOUTHWEST COMPANIONS AS BURQUE POPS. .DREBING: "HIS ROLE WAS TO MAINTAIN THE ANONYMITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE WEBSITE MEMBERS." .PECK: "CHRIS GARCIA SCHEDULED THE GIRLS ON A CALENDAR, PROJECTING GIRLS WHO WERE COMING INTO THE TOWN. WE MIGHT HAVE A GIRL COMING TO TOWN NEXT WEEK, HE WOULD ANNOUNCE HER COMING, POST SOME REVIEWS ABOUT HER." SO WAS CHRIS GARCIA IN IT FOR THE MONEY? .PECK: "THERE WASN'T EVER ANY MONEY EXCHANGED TO THE MODERATORS OF THE WEBSITE. .CHRIS GARCIA HOWEVER WAS ACTIVELY POSTING THAT HE WAS IN FACT DATING THESE PROSTITUTES. ... Q. BASED ON THE EVIDENCE, CHRIS GARCIA HAD A HOOKER PROBLEM? A. YES." GARCIA'S DISTINGUISED CAREER CAME CRASHING DOWN TWO YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS ARRESTED, ACCUSED OF PROMOTING PROSTITUTION. .KOCH: "I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. THAT'S NOT THE CHRIS GARCIA I KNEW." A SEARCH OF HIS CAMPUS OFFICE REVEALED SEX TOYS AND PORN. HIS UNIVERSITY COMPUTER WAS SEIZED. AT APD, GARCIA DECLINED TO GIVE A STATEMENT TO DETECTIVES. TWO YEARS LATER, THE CRIMINAL CASE AGAINST FLORY AND GARCIA CAME TO AN ABRUPT END. YOU SEE BECAUSE NEW MEXICO'S PROSTITUTION LAWS WERE FIRST WRITTEN IN 1921, 50 YEARS BEFORE THE INVENTION OF THE HOME COMPUTER, THE NEW MEXICO SUPREME COURT RULED AN ONLINE CALL GIRL SERVICE DID NOT MEET THE LEGAL DEFINITION OF A HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION. WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A SUCESSFUL PROSECUTION THE DA HAS NOW CLOSED THE CRIMINAL CASE. BOXES OF UNUSED EVIDENCE SIT IN STORAGE. DAVID FLORY RESIGNED FROM FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON. HE DID NOT RESPOND TO OUR REQUEST FOR COMMENT. CHRIS GARCIA DECLINED AN INTERVIEW, BUT THE 73 YEAR OLD FORMER EDUCATOR DID APOLOGIZE FOR HIS ACTIONS. CHRIS GARCIA'S AFFILIATION WITH UNM HAS BEEN SUSPENDED AND MAY BE PERMANENTLY REVOKED. .KOCH: "Q. IF CHRIS GARCIA WERE TO WALK DAY RIGHT NOW DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY TO HIM? A. I WOULD GRAB HIS HAND AND SHAKE IT AND GIVE HIM A GOOD HUG AND SAY GOOD LUCK." LARRY BARKER KRQE 13

THE WINNER GETS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, AND SOME OF THE MONEY RAISED GOES TO CHARITY. BUT, ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUPS SAY IT'S RUINING NEW MEXICO'S REPUTATION. THESE CONTEST ARE PURE AND SIMPLE A CELEBRATION OF THE ACT OF KILLING SO WE LIKE MOST NEW MEXICANS FIND THIS AN APPALLING WAY TO GLORIFY AND INCENTIVE THE KILLING OF NATIVE WILDLIFE. --BUTT-- I DON'T THINK THAT COYOTES, THEY ARE A VARMENT, THEY ARE NOT SOMETHING THAT IS REGULATED, THE REASON THEY ARE NOT REGULATED IS PROBABLY BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THEM. THE CONTEST TAKES PLACE STATEWIDE THIS WEEKEND. A "PROTEST" RALLY IS SET FOR SATURDAY AT UNM.
