A grand jury has indicted the former head of the University of New Mexico Athletics Department on seven felony counts in connection with a golf trip to Scotland in 2015 that was paid for, in part, with university funds.
Paul Krebs, the former UNM athletic director, was charged in February through a criminal complaint with several felonies related to the trip. A grand jury indictment was filed in 2nd Judicial District Court on Wednesday.
The state Attorney General’s Office, which is prosecuting the case, has already alleged that Krebs used his position at UNM to plan and participate in a golf trip paid for by UNM using public money. The AG’s Office has said in court documents that Krebs bypassed university oversight for such travel and expenses, and he later tried to quiet the scandal by deceptively deleting records and paying the university back for part of the trip.
