Dianna Duran wants her probation altered
SANTA FE — Former New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna Duran is asking a judge to reconsider the conditions of her probation.
KRQE-TV reports Duran says the required speaking engagements will endanger her life and they should be reevaluated and removed.
She’s also asking a judge to reconsider the number of community service hours she has to serve and that she be allowed to travel around the state without having to get permission first.
Duran resigned and pleaded guilty last October to felony counts of embezzlement and money laundering for using political campaign funds to fuel a gambling spree.
In December, Duran accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to serve 30 days in jail.
She’s required to make four public appearances per month and to serve 2,000 hours of community service.
