The Line: Levi Chavez Admitted to UNM Law School (Web Extra)

July 31, 2015 – Former APD officer Levi Chavez has been admitted to the UNM Law School. Chavez was tried in 2013 for murder and tampering with evidence in the death of his wife Tera Chavez. Levi Chavez was acquitted in that case, but many people are raising concerns about whether his presence in the next class of law students will damage the reputation of the school or cause problems for other students.

This week’s Line opinion panelists share their thoughts with us in this web extra segment.
