Clovis NM – Ninth Judicial District Attorney, Andrea Reeb, announced that on November 15, 2018, a Curry County jury found Glenn Gumbrecht, age 56, of Clovis, guilty of criminal sexual penetration, a third degree felony, in a case which had ended in a mistrial earlier this year.
In July, 2017, Gumbrecht’s ex-wife reported to Clovis Police that her estranged husband had forced himself sexually on her. The jury heard testimony during the two-day trial this week from law enforcement, a sexual assault nurse examiner, a DNA lab analyst from the State Crime Lab, and the victim.
The Honorable Matthew Chandler presided over the case and ordered that Gumbrecht be taken into immediate custody pending a sentencing hearing. Gumbrecht faces up to three years in the New Mexico Department of Corrections and a lifetime registration as a sex offender.
The case was prosecuted for the State by Jake Boazman, Deputy District Attorney, and Gumbrecht was represented by Criminal Defense Attorney, Sandra Gallagher.
