Tuesday, February 12, 2013 - 12:55am

A former Sunland Park Mayor-elect charged with fraud, conspiracy, and extortion was released from jail.

District Court Judge Darren Kugler granted a bond reduction motion for Daniel Salinas.

The 29-year-old allegedly tried to blackmail one of his opponents with the release of a video of him with a topless dancer and is also accused of bribery.

Salinas has been behind bars for the last 10 months.

Judge Kugler decided to reduce bond because of a conflict of interest with the District Attorney.

The State Attorney General may end up having to prosecute the case.
