Shaddock Trial Moved To Oct. 18

By John Larson

SOCORRO - The trial for Mark William Shaddock, charged with 13 felonies relating to behavior with a female student at the Alamo Navajo Reservation high school, has been moved back to October 18.
Shaddock was arrested on July 28, 2009, by State Police agents on three counts of criminal sexual penetration, three counts of kidnapping, two counts of criminal sexual contact, four counts of child abuse and one count of aggravated stalking.
Shaddock had been a behavior coach at Alamo’s school when allegations of criminal sexual penetration, criminal sexual contact and other related crimes involving the 15 year-old girl emerged. The crimes occurred over a period of months starting in the spring, 2009.
Deputy District Attorney Stacey Ward told the Mountain Mail the continuance was due to defense attorney Lee Deschamps needing more time to prepare for the case.
“The judge [Matt Reynolds] spent a lengthy amount of time explaining to him the realities of criminal representation,” Ward said. “Shaddock decided to keep Lee Deschamps as his attorney, and he understood that in keeping Lee, he needed more time to go to trial.”
