Judge to hear update on Daniel Salinas case
LAS CRUCES, N.M. — The former Sunland Park mayor pro tem and at one time mayor-elect Daniel Salinas will have a court hearing Monday morning.
Salinas's attorney Josh Spencer said he and new District Attorney Mark D'Antonio will be updating the new judge on the bribery and extortion case.
Judge Marci Beyer takes over for Jacinto Palomino who lost a re-election bid in November.
No date for the trial has been set but Spencer said after Monday's conference Beyer will determine how to proceed with the case.
Spencer will also be asking for a bond reduction for his client.
Salinas faces two other trials on separate charges.
