           ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Nakrista Saiz, 33, of Farmington, New Mexico was sentenced in federal court in Albuquerque today to 110 months in prison for assault on a federal officer involving use of a deadly weapon and infliction of bodily injury.

           According to Saiz’s plea agreement, she committed these offenses on Aug. 27, 2018 in San Juan County, New Mexico. Saiz was driving a car with her husband in the passenger seat.  Deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service and San Juan County Sheriff’s Office tried to pull her car over to arrest her and her husband on warrants.  The deputies got out of their car, drew their guns and ordered Saiz and her husband to get out of their vehicle. Saiz disobeyed the deputies’ orders and assaulted the deputies.  She rammed their car head-on and ran over the deputy marshal’s leg while trying to drive away.  The deputy needed treatment at the hospital for his injuries, including knee and back pain, scratches and sore ribs.  

           Saiz must also serve a three-year supervised release term after completing her sentence. 

           The United States Marshal Service and San Juan County Sheriff’s Office investigated this case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sammy Hurtado prosecuted the case.
