LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - A former northern New Mexico superintendent who resigned in disgrace over allegations of faking credentials is facing more criminal charges.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://goo.gl/vvkPaB) state police last week filed a new case against former Mora Independent School District Superintendent Charles Trujillo.

Court documents in San Miguel County Magistrate Court accuse Trujillo of forgery and attempt to commit fraud in connection with a Luna Community College job application.

Trujillo resigned following an October investigation by the Optic that Trujillo faked his credentials to obtain his administrative license.

Two days after the Optic story was published, Trujillo surrendered his education licenses to the state Public Education Department.

He was arrested last month on forgery and fraud charges connected to his Mora position.

Trujillo’s attorney, Sam Bregman, says his client looks forward to fighting the charges.
