A former governor of Puerto Rico was arrested on Thursday on bribery charges related to the financing of her 2020 campaign.

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) said a political consultant for former governor and the president of an international bank have also pleaded guilty to participating in the bribery scheme.

According to the indictment, from December 2019 through June 2020, the then 62 year-old Governor allegedly engaged in a bribery scheme with various individuals, to finance her 2020 election campaign.

The DOJ said if convicted on all counts, she could face a maximum total penalty of 20 years in prison.
