At least state Sen. Richard Martinez was sentenced to jail time. But he got off easy.
Last week, Martinez was sentenced to five days behind bars for his conviction, after a trial, for driving drunk and slamming into a car stopped at a red light in Española last June.
Two people in the other car were hurt, including the driver, who said his injuries have changed his life. Johnny Sisneros’ neck, back and hip injuries have prevented him from resuming work as a security officer. The senator, Sisneros said, “never displayed any remorse and has never apologized for his senseless actions.”
