Amalia compound defendant turned over to immigration authorities

Posted

One of five defendants charged with abusing 11 children at a remote compound in Northern New Mexico has been taken into the custody of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, according to the Taos County Sheriff's Office.

Immigration services detained Jany Leveille, 35, Tuesday (Aug. 14) less than 24 hours after Taos District Court Judge Sarah Backus denied the state's motion to hold  Leveille and her four co-defendants in jail pending trial.

The remaining detainees are still in custody awaiting release. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj will remain in jail on a pending warrant from Georgia.

Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said he could not comment on the USCIS detainment Tuesday, except to say Leveille is from Haiti.
