4 charges filed against Calexico councilwoman

Rosie Fernandez

CALEXICO — Nearly five months after being accused of a hit and run and three months after an allegation of driving under the influence, the state attorney general’s office about a month ago filed a four-count criminal complaint against Calexico Councilwoman Rosie Fernandez.

 The charges stem from a May 5 allegation, where Fernandez admitted she left the scene of an accident without leaving any information to the owner of the car she hit and failing to contact law enforcement, as well as a July 6 arrest for allegedly driving under the influence.
