Court records show representative-elect’s criminal behavior
PHOENIX — Democratic state representative-elect Ceci Velasquez appears to repeat the same criminal behavior, according to court records.
A judge has issued a bench warrant for her arrest.
“She called and said she’d be in on Monday to pay the fines, but that’s the last we’ve heard of her,” said Jess Knudson, Town of Florence spokesman.
Velasquez, who was elected to represent district 29 in West Phoenix, allegedly was cited for driving on a suspended license, suspended registration and no proof of insurance in 2010. The case went to trial and Velasquez was a repeated no-show in court.
“There have been multiple arrest warrants issued for her in the past for failure to appear,” said Knudson.
Velasquez has been cited multiple times in Phoenix for driving without insurance, expired registration and speeding in addition to her failure to appear in court.
According to Phoenix Municipal Court documents, she has had numerous citations dating back to 1993.
