Fmr. Sheriff Greg Solano pleads guilty, sentencing postponed (Listen)
(2011-07-20)
(KSFR) - KSFR's Charles Maynard reports (Listen) that former County Sheriff Greg Solano could face as much as 15 years in jail and more than $100,000 in restitution following his guilty plea of embezzlement before a Santa Fe judge today.

The prosecution and the defense agreed beforehand that 251 separate counts of stealing county supplies could be combined into just five counts. Each could carry a maximum prison term of five years. The defense asked the court to reduce any possible prison time to 8 years so that the former sheriff could begin working to pay the monetary restitution.

Judge Stephen Pfeffer has postponed handing down the final judgment in the case.
