ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Dianna Duran has withdrawn her motion asking the court to reduce her probation.

According to court officials, the motion was filed Tuesday.

The former New Mexico Secretary of State was asking a judge to reconsider the conditions of her probation.

As part of her probation Duran has to speak to the public four times a month for the next three years about her mistakes.

Duran claimed the required speaking engagements will endanger her life and that they should be reevaluated and removed.

She was also asking a judge to reconsider the number of community service hours she has to serve.

This all stems from embezzlement and money laundering charges. Duran went up in front of the judge and pleaded guilty to felonies for embezzlement and four misdemeanors for stealing thousands of dollars from her campaign funds and blowing it at casinos.

The Attorney General’s Office released the following statement about the withdrawn motion Tuesday:

“The Office of the Attorney General noted our opposition to Ms. Duran’s motion, as filed with the court, and we are pleased with this outcome.”
