Former Martinez aide expected to change plea

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The former campaign manager for Governor Susana Martinez is expected to change his plea Monday.

Last November, Jamie Estrada had pleaded not guilty to charges of hacking the campaigns email after Martinez became governor in 2011 and making false statements to federal investigators.

Estrada served as Martinez’s campaign manager in 2009 before she fired him.

The change in plea comes just weeks before his scheduled trial on July 15th.
