BLYTHE - Riverside County District Attorney's office arrested Palo Verde Health Care District Board Director Sandra Hudson at her home Monday afternoon. Officials took her into custody on a $320,000 arrest warrant issued today by Judge Richard Erwood.

Riverside County D.A.'s office charged Hudson with one felony count of a government code 1090 violation, which makes it a criminal violation for elected officials, including elected members of special districts such as the Palo Verde Hospital, to have a financial interest in any contract made by them in their official capacity.

As of yet, details for this arrest have not been made public by the Riverside County D.A.'s office. So it is unknown, exactly, what led to today's arrest.

Hudson served two years on Palo Verde Health Care District Board from 2008-2010. She lost re-election in 2010 and was elected back onto the board in 2012.

Hudson was released on bail Monday evening.

This is what now.... you take down every corrupt seed that is part of the hospital and hire the right people to be in charge that have morals and integrity. Everything starts with leadership and that is why are hospital is suffering because there is no positive leadership. I do not get involved or go to the meetings nor do I know the lady that is being arrested. My thing is that she may have thought she was bigger than the law but apparently she did something wrong and now justice is prevailing. I have read all the blogs and many people believe that this is karma playing its role in life. If that is true than I sympathize with you people (deleted)

The fact that this town gets joy out of putting others down is sickening. You know what they say, " what you say about others has a lot more to say about your character than it does theirs."

It was not an attack, but an observation on how she looks without any make up. Not the same.

This so ridiculous people are saying many bad things about her and i just bring personal appearance and it gets deleted?

People can be mad at me all they want, but when I go to a hospital far from here I tell them to read the local paper in Blythe. I tell them, "that's why I am here and not there." I love life way too much to risk it here in Blythe! And to those who will bad mouth me for that have probably got mental issues.

Ok so what now? I honestly think I have never seen so much hate and jealousy in a town. Regardless of who's arrested or who right or wrong remember this only they are the ones who have to deal with mistakes not all you who are quick to judge! Its so very sad actually to see so much negative going on in such a wonderful little town where there are so many wonderful people saddens me ( . If everyone keeps it up well think of no hospital, then what? And what about all the employees with no jobs? What will happen to our little community? Lets try to turn it around before its just too late!!!

Peter did not steal millions. That was his contract with the hospital. But (deleted). They are greedy and reckless. And who hired Peter? Sandy did. And they hire and fire couple CEO after that. New CEO is a nurse and she is just a puppet. She tried to save the hospital reputation by firing good people. And she replaced them with her clan from a previous hospital in LA that was shut down.
One of the very good OR nurse/ manager was fired. That day I lost respect for this clan. And many more actions of trio, GOD and Anya led the hospital where it is today.
My bet is next Trina then Ms Anya. Time has come. Here is my toast to the beginning of end of evil! Cheers!!!

@ Bullfrog, just by the way you wrote your opinion you discredited what you said. You are writing, not texting. How can you call people hate mongers? We can see a wrong doing that directly touches our lives personally (having a hospital). You mention Peter Kluneís comments were deleted, donít you think that if Peter Klune were to comment he would spell his last name right? To summarize for you, it was not Mr. Klune just someone using that name,
As for the other two board members, which one is on deck. and which one is in the hole.
All four just need to resign, put on their orange jumpsuits, and pay for what they have done. You really believe that none of the four are guilty of what is happening to them? Well I, like they claim, havenít done anything wrong either, the difference is I can prove it because I havenít been arrested (that was a pun)(a pun is a subtle joke). The DA has the evidence, or they would not be wasting their time.

She does look great, I'll give her that. On the subject of her being arrested. The chickens have come home to roost and I couldn't be more hopeful. I try to not take joy from things like this. Someone(maybe lots of someones) suffered because of her and her cronies and I'm glad justice is finally being served.

To her supporters and supporters of her "friends":Your comments are usually childish and of school yard quality. I don't think most people care what you think. Birds of a feather.
