Skip to comments.A father has been arrested after beating a naked prowler he found peering into his daughter's window

An Albuquerque, New Mexico dad who found a naked prowler peering into his young daughter's room will face charges after seriously beating the peeping tom.
Police say Emilio Chavez III found 29-year-old Dylan Maho naked and making noises near a little girl's window when he chose to exact vigilante justice and beat Maho so badly he was taken to the hospital.
While both men could be convicted of felonies, Chavez could potentially get a longer sentence for what he did to the intruder.
'There's a naked man outside his daughter's window,' Chavez's neighbor Bill Morang told KOAT. 'I think he was well within his rights chasing him down and beating him.'
But the district attorney disagrees. Though police initially let the irate father go free after questioning, he is now charged with aggrevated battery, a felony.

What the heck is wrong with DAs in this day and age? They should have given the father an “Attaboy” and place on a float in the local parades...
A great case for a jury to seek the greater justice and to vote to acquit.
Once again the obama administration’s agenda to render the American people unable and unwilling to defend themselves and their families come to the fore.
The DA is Kari Brandenburg, who also prosecuted a Marine who shot and killed a guy trying to steal his truck and was threatening him with a sledge hammer.
She’s a real prize.
DA’s....what is wrong with the justice system? No jury is going to convict this guy. I imagine the charges will get dropped at some point or he’ll plea down to a lesser misdemeanor and get probation. “no more beating up naked perverts um-kay?”
The mistake the father made was not finishing the job and throwing the body in a pickup truck and driving off into the country somewhere and dumping it.
“condom rappers” ??????????????????
Condoms are now rapping in the streets of Albuquerque?
Or do English newspapers have trouble finding writers that understand the English language?
I suspect the latter, but in this day and age you never can tell.
I predict that the DA (which apparently stands for ‘District A—hole’ in this case) will have a hard time finding a jury willing to convict Mr. Chavez.
Better he should have shot the MFr.
Did she get a conviction?
Yes, but a local radio show raised a huge stink and got the sentence commuted.
Sorry they’re busy filing DUI charges against drivers at a paltry .05 BAC after an unconstitutional ‘implied consent’ law revoked the drivers’ licenses after an unconstituional roadblock stop conducted by police earning overtime funded by Uncle Sam who has extorted states into passing lower BAC levels by threatening to withhold highway funding, all funded by donations from police and public-sector unions and insurance companies who benefit from the traffic running through the court systems, ‘diversion programs,’ etc.
But hey, it’s the land of the free!
The government is a jealous dispenser of justice and will not tolerate anyone encroaching on their prerogatives.
By taking action against citizens like this, prosecutors are raising the possibility that citizens will just practice the 3 S’s and just work outside the law.
I hope there’s at least one liberty loving attorney out that way helping him seek a complete pardon, or filing appeals on his behalf to have his conviction overturned.
He'll never be convicted as long as there is one parent on the jury. Any decent attorney should be able to get this reduced to a misdemeanor with probation only.
Not guilty!.............Next case.................
Emilio should be awarded a medal and the keys to the city!
Serves the guy right. You NEVER beat a man for peering into your daughter’s window, while he’s naked. You shoot him. In the head. The naked dead body and its proximity is all the cops need to let you off.
Trayvon Martin used his fists. George Zimmerman used a gun. Which is waling free and which is six feet under? There is a lesson there.
No idea, he had enough of NM and moved to Texas.
What, No “resisting citizens arrest” defense allowed?
Wow, in Texas, I doubt he would’ve been charged.
What the heck happened to New Mexico, specifically Albuquerque in the last 20 years or so? This wouldn’t have even made the middle pages of the papers awhile back, and certainly wouldn’t have been prosecuted.
Are they infested with eastern libs? Or is this home-grown?
The message is CLEAR. If you are a victim - just suffer until the All-Father state comes along to dispense justice.
That DA should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail - and - in a more SANE era of our history WOULD have been.
Might explain the charges against the dad.
Perp is lucky to still be breathing. I doubt that I'd have had such restraint.
Who would have known that a state prosecutor Could be a member of NAMGLA?
It's being Californicated, just like Colorado.
Dad's going to get the Zimmerman treatment: "We know we won't get a conviction, but in the process we will bankrupt you and ruin your life unless you accept our plea deal".
I suspect the issue is the race of the prowler, and the DA wanting to avoid trouble from Holder.
For the price of a shovel, this father could have avoided all this trouble. An hour or so of digging in the dark and the problem is,,,, buried, so to speak.
She wishes naked men would make noises outside her window.
I bet Laz would have hit it, too. And kept on hitting it!
And there it is, in a nutshell.
I've had a number of people tell me that - God forbid - if someone breaks into your house and you ever need to defend yourself or your family.... make sure to put an extra one into the perp. Especially if he is, say, of a darker hue than you. That way, there aren't two conflicting stories to be told.
Sad state that Liberals have put America in, where good men are forced to escalate, rather than get put into the system which should be defending them.
Better call Saul. He will know how to deal with the DA.
I would never have charged him based on what I read . . . but there is often more. Still.
Well, unless he is the DA proper and not an assistant . . . no recall available.
12 idiots too stupid or too bored to avoid jury duty will probably fall for the judges instructions that they are only to consider the law. In fact, the jury is free to make any decision they like irrespective of the law.
The Peter Zenger case is a great example of why the Jury is superior to the judge in matters of the law. A judge can over-rule a conviction but not an acquittal. At least not yet.
Nah. I wouldn't have done this beat down.
I would, instead, have quietly slipped into my daughters room with a laser-equipped glock. Hiding in the shadows, I would have waited for the man to make entry. Upon entry, I would have emptied the magazine into the perp.
This will never get past a jury.
She’s a very strange person based on this bio.
Dang, should have known it...
Those lame west-coasters soil everything they stay move to. I thought is was just confined to Taos and Santa Fe, but I guess not.
Guess I won’t be thinking about retiring back to the old home-state anymore...
The police hadn't been called yet but the homeowner whose house was being broken into said there was no need to do that for he and his assistant would immediately drive the law breaker to the police and turn him in. They left with the burglar.
Everything went back to normal and when the neighbor who caught the burglar made an inquiry with the police several days later whether anyone was arrested that night for burglary the police had no record of any arrest.
Coincidentally the rash of burglaries and break-ins stopped.
No, call Walt. He can tell you where not to bury the booger because he has planted sooooo many around the ABQ area.
Come to Idaho and help prevent its Californication, too!
