Former Santa Fe Indian Market official indicted for alleged embezzlement from charity fund


SANTA FE – The former head of the organization that puts on the annual Santa Fe Indian Market has been indicted for embezzling money from a charity fund to aid victims of the catastrophic tsunami that hit Japan in 2011.

In a Santa Fe County grand jury indictment handed down this week, John Torres-Nez, 50, is charged with two counts of embezzlement for allegedly taking money from the fund while he was the director of artist services for the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA). He denies the charges.
