Mora school chief to stand trial for fake credentials
A former northern New Mexico superintendent who resigned in disgrace over allegations of faking credentials is headed to court for criminal charges.
The Las Vegas Optic reports that a San Miguel County Magistrate Judge on Tuesday ruled that sufficient evidence exists to bind Charles Trujillo over to District Court for one of three criminal cases against him. Preliminary hearings in the other cases are scheduled for next week.
Trujillo is facing fraud and forgery charges connected to his Mora position. In the San Miguel County case considered Tuesday, Trujillo is charged with four counts of forgery, all second degree felonies, one count of second degree fraud, fake identity websites and three petty misdemeanor counts of fraud.
