EDDY COUNTY, N.M. - The former Eddy County Deputy, who resigned from his position almost two weeks ago, has plead not guilty to DWI charges.
Officials with the Eddy County Municipal Court tell NewsWest 9 that 32-year-old Jeffrey Clifton entered the plea back on November 24, just a few days after turning in his resignation.
This comes after he was pulled over by Carlsbad Police for driving erratically and failing several sobriety tests.
Clifton is scheduled to appear in court on March fourth.
