The past caught up with Gracie Gallegos, the former mayor of Pico Rivera. On her rap sheet, a felony conviction for Insurance fraud. Here’s the story:
Former Mayor Gracie Gallegos pleaded no contest to felony insurance fraud while serving on the City Council, but other city officials said Monday they didn’t know about it.
Gallegos entered her plea in August 2007 and was sentenced to five years’ probation and 120 hours of community service, according to court documents. She was elected to the Pico Rivera City Council in March of 2007.
Gallegos resigned from the council less than three weeks ago. She was serving as mayor at the time.
She said she left the council to take care of other priorities, including an ill father with late-stage cancer, the family business and supporting her daughter who studies abroad.
