One of El Paso County Commissioner Vince Perez's staff members has had his charge reduced.
A state grand jury has accused Jaime Abeytia of hacking into someone else's email and showing inappropriate material to a minor. What was once a felony charge is now being reduced to a class a misdemeanor. Abeytia will be in court for an arraignment hearing June 18for this charge.
Along with a computer security breach charge, this isn't Abeytia's first brush with the law. He has an extensive criminal background -- including previous charges of theft and computer security breach.
