LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – A lawsuit has been filed against the District Attorney in Las Cruces. It accuses Mark D’Antonio of violating the New Mexico Whisleblower Act.
A former employee, Marylou Bonacci claims when one of her friend’s family members was arrested, D’Antonio offered to drop the charges for a loan.
Bonacci also claims she brought several complaints to D’Antonio, but her work environment changed and she was eventually fired.
D’Antonio calls the allegations absurd.
