Just because a fraud Judge dismisses this case does not make you innocent - trash BECKY.

It will all catch up to you eventually.

Vile, and might I also add fat and ugly thing.

This decision will entice many people to run for county commissioner so they can vote in favor of deals that will bring them personal gain, either financial or property upgrades, without breaking state statutes as per magistrate judge.

Jurisdiction in felony cases. The dismissal of a felony charge by a magistrate does not result in an acquittal because the magistrate court has no jurisdiction to try felony charges. Consequently, a subsequent indictment is not barred even if the magistrate determines in a preliminary hearing that there is no probable cause to bind over for trial in the district court. Moreover, since the magistrate court has no such jurisdiction, no double jeopardy problem can arise. State v. Peavler, 88 N.M. 125, 537 P.2d 1387 (1975).
A magistrate court does not have jurisdiction to try felony charges on the merits, but does have jurisdiction to hold preliminary hearings in any criminal action as authorized by law. McCormick v. Francoeur, 100 N.M. 560, 673 P.2d 1293 (1983); State v. De La O, 102 N.M. 638, 698 P.2d 911 (Ct. App. 1985).
