Former Nogales mayor settling into prison life

Posted: Updated:

Former Nogales Mayor Octavio Garcia-Von Borstel has been assigned a Department of Corrections inmate number and is currently residing at the Arizona State Prison Complex in east Phoenix.

Prison records show Garcia-Von Borstel is now registered with corrections number 265867 and he is being held at the Alhambra Unit at the Phoenix complex.

The corrections department says the intake facility could serve as either a transfer point or a permanent home for the 31-year-old former mayor.

The Nogales International reports Garcia-Von Borstel was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison on Aug. 29 as the result of a conviction in a bribery case.
