New Mexico State Police officer Joe Ballesteros is under investigation for allegedly drugging and raping two women, according to a KRQE-TV news report. Two women have come forward in the last year claiming to have met Ballesteros at bars in El Paso, Texas, and agreed to go home with him to his house in Santa Teresa, NM. However, that is the last thing the women said they remembered before waking up later at Ballesteros’ home, the sources said.
Brittingham posted bail and was released. A trial date has not been set.
