Jaramillo requested three years probation. He also objected to the government's suggestion that he pay damages he won in a recent wrongful termination lawsuit against the county as restitution. In that lawsuit, a judge ruled that Jaramillo was wrongfully fired by Carona back in 2004. Authorities estimate his award to be about $183,000.
Jaramillo is also opposed to paying a $50,000 fine suggested by the U.S. Probation Office, saying he is the main financial provider for seven people.
Jaramillo served a year behind bars at a private jail in 2007, after pleading no contest to charges of perjury and misuse of county resources.
