Santa Fe, 2019-06-12
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Former Democratic Sen. Phil Griego was released Tuesday on parole from a state corrections facility in Los Lunas. Griego began his sentence in March 2018 after convictions at trial on fraud, bribery and ethical violations for using his position as a lawmaker to profit from the sale of a state-owned building in Santa Fe. Later guilty pleas to embezzlement and perjury charges lengthened his prison stay.
