Sean Sunderland, 24, completed 40 hours of community service chosen from the Municipal Court's approved list of community organizations, according to his lawyer, Kitren Fischer.

Judge Donita Sena then put it back on the docket when it could not be determined whether the Santa Fe County Magistrate Court had properly notified Campbell of the hearing date.
