Former Rep. Galindo Cited For Giving Alcohol To Underage Intern

Galindo for Colorado
Rochelle Galindo ran for the Colorado House District 50 seat in 2018.

Former Colorado state representative Rochelle Galindo, who resigned following what she called false allegations against her, has been cited for providing alcohol to a person under the age of 21.

The Greeley Tribune reports 29-year-old former Rep. Rochelle Galindo is accused of giving wine to an underage college intern multiple times during her 2018 campaign.

A former House legislative aide also was cited.

Police investigated allegations of sexual assault but closed the case at the request of the reporting party and because they couldn't find evidence to support the claims.

Galindo was the target of a recall effort and resigned her position May 12 following the allegations. A vacancy committee is currently working on selecting a replacement.
