Two Magistrate Court Judges, Judge Pat Casados and Judge Alexandra Naranjo, have recused themselves from a Los Alamos embezzlement case. Karyne Archuleta of Los Alamos is now scheduled for a first appearance Jan.18 before Judge Matthew S. Page.

A criminal summons was filed Dec. 5 charging Archuleta with embezzlement of more than $17,500 from her former employer, Annette Weyrauch, owner of Physical Therapy Plus in Los Alamos. Court documents indicate that during the length of Archuleta’s employment $37,544.80 worth of cash was logged into the system for Physical Therapy Plus but only $20,440.60 was deposited in the bank.

The documents state that because Archuleta was the person in charge of handling the money that was brought into all three branches of the business and there is was no record of her ever finding a shortage when the cash for deposit to the bank was brought to her, it is believed that she embezzle $17,504.20 from the business.
