MORA, N.M. (KRQE) – The former Mora schools superintendent is appearing in court Friday for allegedly lying to everyone about his qualifications.

Prosecutors have since filed charges of fraud and forgery.

If convicted of all the charges, Trujillo could be sentenced to more than 117 years in prison.

He has a preliminary hearing scheduled Friday for everyone to get an update on the case.
