(KSL News) A candidate for Salt Lake City mayor could be behind bars when the election rolls around.

Centro Civico Mexicano director John Renteria is currently facing charges he violated probation from a previous traffic conviction. If convicted, he could spend up to a year in jail.

Despite his legal troubles, Renteria can still seek the Mayor's office because all of his convictions would be misdemeanors.

Renteria is not the only candidate who has had trouble with the law. Robert K. Muscheck had an injunction filed against him by his children's school to keep him off the property.
