  • Ex-PRC member ordered to prison for evaluation

    SANTA FE (AP) — Former state utility regulator Jerome Block Jr. was sent to a state prison diagnostic center Friday, and a judge sternly warned him that he potentially faces many years behind bars if he doesn’t deal with a drug addiction.
    District Judge Michael Vigil postponed Block’s sentencing on felony charges until after a 60-day evaluation at the Central New Mexico Correctional Facility in Los Lunas. Block resigned last year from the Public Regulation Commission under a plea agreement with the attorney general’s office. He pleaded guilty to felonies for misuse of taxpayer money and election law violations.
