I respect Henry Torres, we all make mistakes, he has been an incredibly positive influence on this community.

He's human, and a great one at that.

I think he should have gone about making Mary Ann feel like crap another way. Reminded me of the abuse women had to take from husbands years ago----you all know what I mean the Male beating his chest to make a woman feel like a complete failure!!! There could have been an investigation into this before shaming MaryAnn and her husband on TV., and then Torres turning tail and running out of the room. Coward!!! Not good EX-commissioner. Showed me what he really is. MaryAnn is dedicated to her job and there are a lot of jealous people.

Henry was wrong to drink and drive,but Mary Ann is a thief. He can fix his problem, but once a thief always a thief. Her problem nor her reputation can ever be fixed.

A drunk is a drunk. I have known for years that Henry is a drunk, but this is about his DUI not Mary Ann Sedillos. So lets just keep it that way. I think Henry should step up and explain what he was doing in Deming at 1:00 am and driving drunk in the first place. He could have gone to a motel or called family instead of bringing more shame to the county government.

naaa well all knew that Henry was a drunk its about time that they caught him in the act...if he would have been pullled over in Grant County he would have been let go...we all know that he is not the only one that likes to drink but get caught in another county is another matter can't pay off everyone...even when Henry was a cattle inspector he thought he owned the county and I bet all this time he tought he could do anything and get away with it...Shame on your Henry now what does your wife think about you now?
