Linda Diaz

From a statement released Thursday from U.S. Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales, via public affairs officer Elizabeth M. Martinez:

On November 2, 2010, Senior United States District Judge C. LeRoy Hansen sentenced Linda Diaz, the 53-year old former Lieutenant Governor of the Pueblo of Pojoaque, to a twelve-month and a day term of imprisonment and to be followed by six months home confinement and one-year supervised release for her conviction for leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

Judge Hansen also ordered Diaz to self surrender to a prison facility to be designated by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. Following her sentencing hearing, Diaz filed a motion for release pending appeal of her conviction.

On December 8, 2010, Judge Hansen issued a Memorandum Opinion and Order denying Diaz’s motion for release pending appeal. Diaz is required to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons and begin serving her prison sentence no later than December 29, 2010.
