[Approved, effective November 1, 1999 until July 1, 2001; approved, as amended, effective May 1, 2001; as amended by Supreme Court Order 07-8300-20, effective September 17, 2007; as amended by Supreme Court Order No. 08-8300-40, effective December 15, 2008.] Committee commentary. — The Family Violence Protection Act provides that "a peace officer shall arrest without a warrant and take into custody a person whom the peace officer has probable cause to believe has violated an order" of protection entered pursuant to the Act. Section 40-13-6(C) NMSA 1978. This statute would allow a warrantless misdemeanor arrest for conduct occurring outside the presence of the officer and would not require exigent circumstances in addition to probable cause. That a misdemeanor must occur in the presence of the arresting officer is a long standing common law requirement for a warrantless misdemeanor arrest. Eg. State v. Luna, 93 N.M. 773, 777, 606 P.2d 183, 187 (1980). The "exigent circumstances" requirement is mandated by the New Mexico Constitution. Campos v. State, 117 N.M. 155, 159, 870 P.2d 117, 121 (1994) ("[F]or a warrantless arrest to be reasonable it must be based upon both probable cause and sufficient exigent circumstances."). Absent the exigent circumstance that the misdemeanor is committed in the presence of the officer, id., ("If an officer observes the person arrested committing a felony, exigency will be presumed."), the New Mexico Constitution appears to bar blanket authority to make warrantless arrests for misdemeanors committed outside the presence of the officer. The legislature, of course, lacks power to provide by statute for an arrest procedure that violates the New Mexico Constitution. Campos v. State, 117 N.M. 155, 158, 870 P.2d 117, 120 (1994). To avoid having the Supreme Court give approval to a form containing language of questionable constitutional validity, the committee did not use the statutory language in the portion of the final order describing the power of a law enforcement officer to make a warrantless arrest for the misdemeanor crime (Section 40-13-6(D) NMSA 1978), of violating the final order of protection. The committee substituted more general language, which does not prejudge the constitutional issue. The general provisions of the order of protection, including injunctive orders, "shall continue until modified or rescinded . . . or until the court approves a subsequent consent agreement. . . ." Section 40-13-6(B) NMSA 1978. In contrast, "[a]n order of protection . . . involving custody or support shall be effective for a fixed period of time not to exceed six months". Id. The custody or support "order may be extended for good cause upon motion . . . for an additional period of time not to exceed six months", id., unless "the order supersedes or alters prior orders of the court" pertaining 12 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com to child custody or child support. See Section 40-13-5(C) NMSA 1978. In the latter situation, "the court may enter an initial order of protection, but the portion of the order dealing with child custody or child support will then be transferred to the court that has or continues to have jurisdiction over the pending or prior custody or support action".
