North Miami Beach Mayor George Vallejo is facing criminal charges after allegedly using donations for his 2015 campaign for personal expenses for himself and his wife.
Authorities with the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office say Vallejo will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of violating campaign laws and resign from office.
- Serve 90 days of house arrest with a GPS monitor
- Complete 500 hours of community service
- Recieve 18 months of probation
The charges stem from Vallejo's 2015 unopposed re-election, when he solicited donations for a political committee created by his aunt named "Floridians for Progress," authorities said.
In May of 2015, the treasurer of the political committee wrote a $5,000 check to a Florida corporation formed in 2014 by Vallejo and his wife, Sandra Shinego.
Authorities said the money was then moved to a Wyoming corporation owned by the couple, and was then largely spent on their personal expenses.
Vallejo has been mayor since 2011. He and his wife have two sons.
