You can’t sit on the State Court of Appeals bench with a DWI conviction on your résumé.

That about sums up the decision of the New Mexico State Supreme Court, which forced the hand of State Court of Appeals Judge Robert Robles to resign after a February arrest and subsequent conviction on a first-offense DWI.

Robles, the former Las Cruces judge, has agreed to step down and resign effective June 1. He has also agreed to never again accept or even seek appointment to the bench. For good measure, a Supreme Court order released Monday also orders publication in the state’s Bar Bulletin a formal reprimand.
