Navajo woman on state commission convicted on felony charges
Politicians in New Mexico are calling for the resignation of a Navajo Nation woman who serves on the State Public Regulation Commission after she was convicted on felony charges.

Carol Sloan, a Democrat, was found guilty of aggravated battery and aggravated burglary. Prosecutors say she attacked another woman, Brenda Yazzie, in an incident off the reservation.

As a convicted felon, Sloan cannot run for re-election but she can serve out the rest of her term on the commission. Her district includes parts of the Navajo Nation.
