Former Rio Arriba County Commissioner Barney Trujillo has been convicted of violating the state’s procurement code after a district judge found he failed to disclose contributions to an Española school board member’s campaign.

Trujillo, who at one time had a marketing services contract with the Española school district, was indicted by a grand jury in 2018.

As Trujillo’s contract was a transaction of more than $50,000, District Court Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer ruled this week he is guilty of a fourth-degree felony.
