Looking at news articles and blogs from Maryland, Mr. Ruark has some bad reviews. Check it out:

Seems to me Janetta Hicks will hire anyone. The rumors are that he got fired in September '11 after he was served a protective order by his girlfriend. I wonder if his wife will be moving here with him. Of course the Hobbs News Sun paints a beautiful picture of this seemingly untouchable prosecutor. Accusations of alcoholism, womanizer and opinions of from Maryland saying he has "...ruined people's lives needlessly...".

These accusations don't make a person who they really are, but I thought this to be an interesting topic.

I love that the articles seem to indicate that he got out of a charge of violating that protective order because of taking the job here. I read the article in the paper and wondered why someone would leave the top job in another state to take the new mexico bar and come all the way here to take a lower job. Guess now we know why. Nice hiring, Janetta.

It is also believed she hired an illegal to work in her Roswell office and that man ended up raping a teenaged girl.

Story on Ruark

http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/20120228/N...

The other man that is supposedly an illegal is Arnold Aguilar. He was convicted of 5 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor for raping (and this is where I was mistaken) a 16-year-old male NMMI cadet in a Roswell hotel. I don't know for sure if he is an illegal, but that is the rumor.

Ruark also claims to have a 'consulting' business. I wonder if he was hired to 'consult' the DA's in Hobbs because he isn't listed as an attorney on the NM Bar Association website.

-Food for thought- Janetta Hicks has a hard time keeping Assistant D.A.'s for a reason. It would be interesting to hear from someone who has worked for her in the past.

I think he just barely passed the bar, so he still has to be admitted to practice in the state of NM. It is sad that a criminal being hired to prosecute crimes in not news worthy in Hobbs anymore.

Have not worked with him for a long time, but when I knew him he was a first rate person who worked his rear off; obviously made some mistakes in judgement but I would have no problems hiring him. Eastern Shore's loss I would think.

you evidently didnt know davis ruark as well as you
think you did.the only time he worked his rear off
was with any married woman that would sleep with him.he has no remorse for anything wrong he has done and has never been held accountable for his
sneaky behavior.Eastern shores gain not loss!

He's proven himself to be a first rate person and prosecutor. Please support him here in Hobbs and now in Carlsbad. He's shown that he's a great attorney and a great person.

He has proven himstelf to be a high class, first rate person. Ruark is also a first rate trial lawyer. The people in Maryland were crazy to let me go. Maybe they are athe crooken ones or the ones with bad luck. Ask anybody, jusdges, defense attorneys, police officers and victims/witnesses. They will say the very same thing. I'm proud of him

Davis Ruark is as crooked as they come! He can be bought and sold, influenced and coerced. Morals and ethics don't even enter this man's mind. He uses his position to further his personal vendettas. Heaven help you if you are a battered woman - your case will never see the light of day. Send him back to Maryland ...
