Co-defendants in Vigil-Giron case want a dismissal

Rebecca Vigil-Giron
Lawyers for three co-defendants in the case involving former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron were in court Monday, hoping to get the same result she did. 

 A judge last week dismissed a string of corruption charges against her. The judge ruled the state had taken too long to bring that case to trial. The charges still stand against the other co-defendants and Monday, their attorneys told the judge they want the same fate as Vigil-Giron, on the same grounds.
 Judge Reed Sheppard didn’t rule on that Monday, but set another hearing for next spring. Court records show all three have multiple criminal charges against them in district court, including money laundering, tax fraud and kickbacks.
