ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former Rio Arriba County Sheriff Tommy Rodella will not get out of prison early.
Rodella has five years left in a 10-year sentence for pulling a gun during an off-duty traffic stop in 2014. Prosecutors called it a fit of road rage. But Rodella asked a judge to release him early since there was a change in a federal firearms law last June. But the judge declined his request.
